    To add to my, "Oh, my Gosh! It's so amazing!" rendition of what I'd like, I think I want to add that these are not actually suicide doors. The rear doors are mini-van like (oh, shut up!) and open fully and automatically for easy entry and exit...

    Very nice, Sal! I'd call it the 2011 Cadillac Imperial Sedan. An ode to the 1930 one.

    Phantom, maybe - not not Chrysler Imperial!

    Cool Re: 2011 Cadillac XLS (STS/DTS Replacement)

    Sal:

    I like your flagship concept, simply because it's an American interpretation of Rolls Royce! Before Cadillac I was always smitten with the British imports having owned a Jaguar XJS, and a Land Rover.

    In the last several weeks I have again become re-acquainted with Jaguar, and I have been toying with the idea of getting a 2008 XJR. My Local Cadillac Dealership has the CTS, and I have been invited to come in for a test drive. I did passed by on my way home late 08/28 evening, after the dealership had closed and looked at the CTS, parked outside (they had several), while better looking than the outgoing one, I think for my height and frame, it's not the right size for me, so...I am not at all interested!

    It's not only in Texas that they grow em tall...I want a car I can fit in and drive comfortably and safely. Maybe by 2012 I'll be in the market again for another Cadillac, we'll see.

    Thanks. That's what it was meant to be.. An American interpretation of the Rolls Royce Phantom. Chrysler did a bad job by not having a "Chrysler" front-end and rear-end. My version looks like a DeVille from the front and back with an square-ish cabin and unique sides...

    I guess the XJR is the biggest Jaguar available?

    Well, I'm not a firm believer in the v12 yet.. Cadillac needs to get their v8 competitive (again) first.. Plus, I think more people would be interested in a large car than a large gas guzzler.. I really just don't see what all the hype of a v12 is about when you can have the kind of power a Corvette has with a v8. I used Adobe Photoshop.

    Sort of, I guess. You're not the first one to say that.. It looks like a mixture of old style Cadillac with new, to me...

    Again I like the idea of sliding parallel doors. The previous Eldorado had unusually long doors that made parking next to one a major issue. Also those front vents do make the 2008 STS more attractive, and it appears that the new model is also selling better.
