In fact, it is now a world-class luxury sports sedan. We've also been blessed (yes, blessed) by the arrival of the Cadillac CTS Wagon (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/cts+sport+wagon/), which is available in both the enjoyable 3.6-liter flavor and the downright orgasmic V-for-Vendetta edition (http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/cts-v+sport+wagon/).

The current wagon is a brand-new varietal of the CTS family. There was no first generation CTS Wagon. Or was there?

Evan McCausland of Automobile fame ambled across a General Motors (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/general+motors/)-owned parking lot that serves as a final resting place of discarded project vehicles. Parked amongst the unwanted heaps of GM iron was a wagon that caught McCausland's eye. More specifically, it appeared to be a first-generation Cadillac CTS Wagon.

Clearly, the engineers at GM have had a wagon on the brains for years. We, however, are thankful they waited for the current model to bring this plan to fruition.
