A pair of camouflaged Cadillac CTS (http://autoblog.com/cadillac/cts) prototypes were spotted, and thankfully photographed, outside a grocery store in Southern California. From the image above - there are plenty more if you click over to TotalCarScore.com (http://www.totalcarscore.com/car-reviews/road-tests/spy-shots-2014-cadillac-cts-v) - it appears these could be testers for the 2014 CTS-V (http://autoblog.com/cadillac/cts-v), but that is just speculation. We've seen the obvious "V" motif in the grille before, and there's what could be another "V" in the design of the side mirrors.

The hood on the car in the background appears to include two bulges, but the single shot that affords a tiny peek under the hood shows reveals only the airbox. Plenty of rumors, and the sight of an engine cover inscribed with the words "Twin Turbo," (http://wot.motortrend.com/spied-2014-cadillac-cts-with-interior-shots-229857.html#axzz2Hb7mzGjq) have caused people to wonder if a twin-turbo V6 (http://www.caranddriver.com/news/2014-cadillac-cts-spy-photos-news) will live under the production car's hood instead of the V8 currently there. In back, instead of the round tailpipes found outboard on all the CTS sedans, there's a pair of integrated tips in a parallelogram shape. A new shifter with contrasting stitching was spied in the cabin.

If predictions hold up it will arrive later this year. When it does, expect the body underneath all that camo to be softer on the eye (http://wot.motortrend.com/report-2014-cadillac-cts-styling-may-be-less-edgy-more-sophisticated-260131.html#axzz2Hb7mzGjq) compared to the current car - less science and more art.

I just read somewhere that the new CTS will be unveiled at the New York Auto Show in March.

Indeed, and "It's just gorgeous."

Is anyone else terribly upset at the prospect of no new CTS coupe? I know the ATS will get a coupe version, but I'm not sure it will quite exemplify what I love about the CTS coupe, with its pointy-ness and hard edges.
The ATS all around is more smoothed out and curved. I've heard someone describe it as a "melted" version of the CTS and I can't help but agree. Still love it, don't get me wrong, but the CTS coupe and V coupe are both so....in your face! I love it.

I am right there with you on that!

I love my V coupe! I hope they don't make a gen3 V coupe so that it becomes even more exclusive/rare.

It's no secret Cadillac wants to boost sales dramatically. They see how BMW, Mercedes and Audi are doing it -- variants, variants, variants. GM bean counters know this too, so part of me thinks these reports of cutting body styles are pure sand-bagging. Under promise, over deliver.

100% agree!
