    All Cateras are 3.0 liters.

    The Opel Omega had a 3.2 option.

    You can swap in a 3.2 from the first year CTS but it was never offered in the Catera.

    On the engine part of your question, no 3.2 Cat ever came out of Rüsselsheim.

    On the "sport" part of your question:

    This is much more interesting. The Catera Sport models are most often attributed to the 2000 and 2001 model years. However, my best recollection is that a small number of Catera Sports were manufactured in 1999! Finding one for sale, though, could be quite a challenging task!

    But even a 1999 Catera Sport had the 3.0 engine.

    It's not "a '98" if it was sold and is registered as a '99.

    Agreed. Absolutely. But also:

    Rüsselsheim began building the '99 Cats around circa September of 1998, October of 1998? I dunno. But certainly by December of 1998, which is really late, they were putting out 1999 Cateras . . no question of that.

    So with a build date of 12/98, that's a '99 Cat for sure.

    And remember, the 1999 Cadillac Catera Sport is the rarest Cat of all. To me, it's a collector's item.
