    I wasn't insinuating that the STS-V is an old man's car. What I'm saying is that it is massive and a little to posh for me personally to get all that excited over. If there were no CTS-V, I would buy a C6 Vette or an M3, but the STS-V regardless of how awesome it is, would bee a long way down the list.

    BTW, the CTS-V is absolutely not a "rebodied Vette". I would figure a GM tech would know that.

    I doubt highly that any true CTS-V enthusiast would trade over to an STS-V. It's less agile (or will be once it's tested), heavier, automatic and based on the same platform as our CTS-V. BTW it's not a rebodied vette. As far as the "food chain" goes, I see the STS-V as the bottom of the pack between the E55 and M5, it's competition. It's a good car, just not there on performance yet. The CTS-V however beat the S4 and M3 at Nuburing (sp) and does it for $1,000's less. The price of admission for a performance oriented vehicle is uh, let me think, yah that's it, performance. Yes the STS-V is a good vehicle it's just not GREAT at anything. The CTS-V has more horsepower, more room and is faster when track tested vs. the M3 and S4. I also like the fact that I can add power at will hampered only by my budget and willlingness to void my warranty. Good luck increasing the HP in an STS-V.

    Cadillac fans attacking excellent Cadillac products.
    This thread should be moved to an STS-V section of the forum.

    The new tech N* has none of the old "traights" Seriously, I have my eye on it. You CTS-V guys are going to the bottom of the Caddy food chain (well, not the bottom).

    Dont frett, just get ready to order. LOL

    See the name?
    Sorry, not impressed. I think I am just whelmed...

    Two different cars...two different market segments...two different buyers.

    Trim several hundred pounds off the STS-V, offer the 500HP 7.0 liter Z07 engine, T56 6spd, AND option the AWD...then I'll hold my breath.

    Platform? You mean like the Vette and the XLR share (not the CTSV)?
