Cadillac News, Concepts, Future Models, Rumors and more Discussion, OffThaHorseCEO present: ETC-V (56k beware) in Current Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; heres my version of the ElDorado Touring Coupe-V
as a reference heres the original source picture, an STS-V:
then heres ...
Very nice chop!
Though, I don't think a coupe makes an Eldorado... STS coupe might be a very, very good idea, but I rather see the Eldorado as an exclusive model and body type, like the used to be since 1967.
I am affraid it will end up just like that IF they will launch a new ETC...
But the name Eldorado stands for some more exclusiveness than a dubbed coupe. I think it will take some time, but Cadillac will come back with an ETC and even an FLS! (Fleetwood Luxury Sedan)
I hope both with more Sixteenish/Cien style than the CTS style!!!
Very nice pictures! Thanks! But Eldorado is a history now (a great history), and I don't believe they will bring it back. The "ETC" name has a small chances too. My choice is an "STC", because it is based on the STS.

The STS competes with the E-Class, the A6 and the 5-series, while the CTS competes with the C-Class, the A4 and the 3-series.

thanks Mr Collaziano!
i still dont really understand why the eldo should have a completely different body style
In 1956, Cadillac decided to bring out a hardtop version of the Eldorado. To distinguish between the two models, the convertible was called Eldorado Biarritz and the hardtop got the name Eldorado Seville. So as a matter of fact, the first Sevilles were not four door sedans, as we know them today, but ultra-luxurious two door hardtop coupes.
Yes the Eldorado evolved from an existing body style. But from 1967 the Eldorado got it's own.
So, after the Eldorado died, it could re-emerge from another existing body style. Yes. But IMO that is a pitty. I do understand that GM might not have had the sources to fit a new ETC in the new line. But it's still a pitty.
And hey, I am just venting. I am certainly not to be taken that serious and taken into consideration by Cadillac...
Again, I really like the coupe version of the STS! It absolutely looks great! Even without any sporty mods. But I wouldn't call it an ETC...
