My mom who has become familiar with the v (after I've owned v1 and v2). She said I saw a two door v today at work. All black with black wheels. Is she crazy? Not sure why one would be in Joplin mo.?

I highly doubt it, but I will make a few calls today and ask around. I grew up in Joplin and still know most of the people that could afford something like that. PM me where she saw it.....

camo'd V coupes have been spotted a few times, most noticeable feature is the center exhaust imo, pretty sexy if you ask me
just google "cts-v coupe spy shots" you'll get a lot of images and links.

Are you offering GMS pricing on them?

I made a few calls and it seems like a no go thus far. I know for a fact that there are 3 XLR-Vs in Joplin. That seems much more likely that a V2 coupe. I will keep making calls though.

Edit: Just talked to a guy I know at Crossroads Cadillac and he has not heard of one either.

I might regret saying this, but I think the sedan is more attractive -- better roofline. And those center-mounted exhausts might have put me off enough to not get a V.

The sedan looks much better imo. This baby got some back!

I've always like coupes over sedans, but in this situation I will keep my sedan.

But I may be speaking to soon, as these drawings may not be totally accurate. Plus I always like cars better in person. We will see. I think we have some time before this car hits the road though.

If I had to bet money I would say my mom was confused with the black xlrv in town

The guys at Jalopnik need to learn how to use photoshop. Those taillights look horrible.

If it has the center mounted exhaust, with it's sharp crease in the center it should not have large round tips either. Both the concept and the base coupe use a flat, almost crest-like rear exhaust that complements the body design.

The coupe comes with a rear camera unlike the sedan.

Are the specs and options known for what will be the production coupe?

Cadillac had already said they were putting a backup camera in the coupe (V and non V) because of the higher rear end and angle of the rear glass.

I like the coupe much better than the sedan. I will own one if they make a V version.

Sorry guys don't mean to hate but if you want sexy lines the CTS sedan doesn't really fit the bill. The car is great and says brute strength but sleek and sexy lines its not. I love the sedan but wished they had a lower sleeker look to it. Just my opinion so don't hate me too much

WOW is that UGLY!!!!!!!!!!! For those of you that really want this, I will hapily buy your current 4 door off of you. This 2 door version is just nasty... it seriously looks like an Acura RSX.

"Sleek and sexy" car lines are in the eye of the beholder. One person's "sleek and sexy" may be another person's "rounded and commonplace."

OK. Got a little over 5.5k on the OD at the moment, Raven Black, manual trans, Lt. Titanium Recaro seats, no suede stuff on the steering wheel or shift nob though, UltraView (it was recently replaced under warranty), needs new rear Pilot Sports, Nav and Radio upgrade, and no mods yet. PM me when the coupe arrives. I'm in the Balto./DC Metro area.

Thank you so much!
