A leaked supplier document landed on our doorstep this afternoon purportedly showing a rendering of the all-new Cadillac ATS (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/CadillacATS/) in both sedan and coupe form. According to our sources, neither are real. But dammit, we wish they were.

The document confirms what we already know: the Cadillac (http://www.autoblog.com/make/cadillac/) ATS sedan is due out in July of 2012 as a 2013 model, and while there's no mention of powertrains, the smart money is on a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in the base version and the same 3.6-liter V6 from the CTS (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/cts) fitted to the higher-end model.

But what about the coupe? Expect to see a concept version appear sometime in 2013 and we've confirmed that series production is set to begin in January of 2014. Will it be a hatch like that sexpot shooting brake above? Don't count on it. But considering this is the same automaker that's producing a 556-hp station wagon with a manual transmission (http://www.autoblog.com/model/cts-v-sport-wagon)...This is not the Cadillac ATS Coupe, but it should be (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/06/17/this-is-not-the-cadillac-ats-coupe-but-it-should-be/) originally appeared on Autoblog (http://www.autoblog.com) on Fri, 17 Jun 2011 19:26:00 EST.

That sedan looks decent.

That hatch looks nasty.

The sedan rendering looks like just a smaller proportioned CTS, which is sorta dumb IMO. And the hatch looks like a BMW M coupe. Thank goodness these aren't real :)

The pics look squished. Still, I'd love to see the CTS sedan take on more of hte backend from the coupe.

Coupe looks like a crappy Mazda 3, Sedan looks like an Infinity from the windows down with a cts top. Both are horrible, and both make me hate the internet. Well, not true, but they are horrible.
