Interesting indeed.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, "It's a good time to be a gear-head"...

Let's hope we see the ATS Coupe soon and hopefully, the ATS-V will have a V8 and not a twin turbo V6.

Sounds like there may NOT be a 3rd gen CTS-V, but rather an ATS-V.

Seems I read somewhere that the ATS-V will have the active fuel management to improve fuel economy. Not a big fan of the active fuel management but it is coming and will be on all performance cars in the future. Unfortunately, the AFM and with any type of aggressive exhaust note make it sound a little like a 2 cycle motor boat. This forces the exhaust to be toned down from the factory so it isn't as noticible. To me that would take away the distinction of the "V" series.

I would have gotten a V wagon if they had them when I bought mine.

I read a while ago that the new platform of the 3rd-gen CTS isn't going to be able to support a motor/power/drivetrain combo that the current V offers, and doubted the availability of future CTS-V offerings. Wish I could find the link for that, but it's eluding me right now. :-P

If they don't make a 3rd gen CTS-V, then there's no way the ATS-V gets a turbo V6. Cram an LSA in there and be done with it.

Good God! Don't tell me that! Here I am thinking of parting with my 2010 V to help finish paying my kids college tuition and waiting for the 2014 V as my personal incentive.

It is a FACT that an LS engine can fit in the Alpha platform. The next CTS will be on a stretched Alpha. The next Camaro will be on an Alpha.

There will be a next gen CTS-V...

I like the 1 in 3 CTS wagons is a V statement. Thats pretty darn cool, yet again I wish I could have found a BD wagon last fall.
