From Cadillacs facebook page:


We’re headed to the west coast for the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pebble-Beach-Concours-dElegance/217031470120). Pebble Beach is famous for big announcements and while we can’t give away too much information we can say that you’ll want to stay tuned for some big news from Cadillac.

I wonder what it is...

ATS?
XTS?
New concept? Maybe an Ultra Lux flagship?

...at the Pebble Beach Concours? That's more Ultra Lux Flagship territory, in my opinion. Hopefully at least.

The only thing suitable for announcement at Pebble Beach would be the that the Sixteen will go into limited production!

Pebble Beach, CA--GM announced today that its Cadillac Division will join Duesenberg, Pierce Arrow, Peerless, and Packard among the late, great marques in that giant car salon in the sky. "We just don't know what to do with Cadillac," said Dan Akerson, GM CEO. "After we came up with the XTS, we decided we were really better at building Buicks than Cadillacs, so that's what we're going to do. Frankly, GM just doesn't know how to do a luxury car anymore, and really we haven't for over 30 years." The surprise announcement leave GM with just two car divisions, Chevrolet and Buick. "Our goal is to be the most mainstream, bland automaker in the world," said Akerson. "When people think of GM cars, we want them to think "decidedly average". In fact, we want them to have difficulty remembering what they even look like. We believe with this announcement we're well on our way to that goal."

Cadillac unveiled the Ciel concept, an elegant, open-air, grand-touring car inspired by the beauty of the California coast. The Ciel is a modern interpretation of the large, expressive luxury that is innate to Cadillac. Combining authentic craftsmanship with futuristic details like a twin-turbocharged hybrid power plant and next generation connectivity, it is an ultimate expression of The New Standard of the World.

Hell no! This car has classic good looks. It's a virtual time warp both past, present and future. If they build it will be the sexiest car of all time (possibly). :)

Now that looks like a car (at long last!). Fit it with an 8 and all will be well with the world.

its like a brougham- but 100x nicer and in convertible form.
put an 8 in it and ditch the hybrid stuff and it will be the coolest cadillac made in forever.
