Cadillac News: Rumormill: Mooted Cadillac flagship could be mid-engined sports car

2010 Cadillac XTS Platinum Concept - Click above for high-res image gallery
Car and Driver is reporting that the often-reported Cadillac flagship is at a crossroads. There have been many rumors that the planned range-topper will wind up as a rear-wheel drive, high-end luxury sedan slotting above the production version of the XTS Platinum (the concept version of which is shown above). Now C/D has apparently been hearing whispers that it may in fact show up as a mid-engined sports car.
While the thought of a luxurious, mid-engined ZR1 sounds appealing, we'll file this in the don't-hold-your-breath category. Although, if the company is brassy enough to build the ultra low-volume CTS-V Sport Wagon, then perhaps anything is possible.

rumors that a mid engine 'vette was in development hit the web a few months ago, but were squashed by GM pretty early on. seems now the mistake was assuming it was for Corvette.
