    That's true but that residual is ultimately controlled by market demand. Hence, more Americans start buying Cadillac over other brands that will increase resale value which should finally allow Caddys to lease out strongly

    If I'm not mistaken, there is already a trend that confirms that on the ATS. The current offers aren't that bad.

    Re: 2014 CTS VSPORT Announced

    I'd be interested in the compromise between having all the performance of THE V and the better mileage of the Vsport. But given the Vsport will likely cost more than a used 12 (or maybe 13 by the time they actually hit the streets), and the concern over buying a first model year vehicle, which is likley to need a few tweaks before they get it dialed in, I'll stick to looking for a used V.

    Since the Vsport has closed the gap between the base CTS & the V2, it'll be interesting to see what they come up with for the V3!

    Harry is projecting for the V-Series (not the announced V-Sport).

    Their goal was to ostracize me?

    600 HP + is just insane. I mean, I owned high performance vehicles (2006 BMW M5) before - but this is getting out of hand.

    So true. My neighbor got rid of his Viper because it was just too much power to drive enjoyably. He sold it and got the Audi A10. Much more usable refined power

    One problem with too much power is finding tires that can handle it. That's a funny problem to have.

    I think the manufacturers are doing it because, 1. They can now with DI engines, and 2. To get people like me to want one because I will feel deficient with ONLY 469 HP.

    Re: 2014 CTS VSPORT Announced

    Therein lies the problem. With all season tires, I can't go more than half throttle off the line with my Camaro. That's on warm, dry pavement. And with the miles I drive, I am not keeping summer tires on the car. They are way too expensive to be replacing every year.
