    Possible use in V-Series STS? You know what that means: Cadillac still doesn't get it. If STS doesn't have 400hp in MY2005 and the V-Series doesn't bow the next year with 500hp, Cadillac can just pack it up and go home.

    They still think they're competing with Lincoln. Figure it out, boys. Refinement means squat if you don't have the halo version to light the fires.

    500 hp is all good but who is gonna pay 80k for it especially when in three years it isnt even worth half that amount.

    Eighty grand? Cadillac will have to do better than that; the E55 AMG doesn't cost that much. (MSRP)

    Figure 400hp for $55,000 and 500hp for $70,000 (plus options). Of course, the STS they actually build will probably be 320hp for $50,000 and they'll wonder why only the Cadillac faithful buy them.

    Still waiting for proof that they really do get it.

    The biggest issue as far as I'm concerned is that Cadillac takes entirely TOO LONG to bring new product to market.
    Example: The new Chrysler Cross Fire debuted as a concept in '01 and is hitting the market within a month or so. The Cadillac XLR debuted in '99 as the Evoq concept and we're still waiting for it.

    Amen. Look how long it took to drop an existing engine (LS6) into an existing car (CTS). CTSv should be on the road in January? I know GM's got Grands Prix and Malibus to launch but really...

    I think GM is paying the price for thinning its engineering ranks without thinning its products. They spend so much time turning out variations of vanilla they have no time to make excellent compelling product.
