    what do you guys think?
    WOW!

    You have a real talent.

    That is the DTC i would buy. I think many coupe deville owners would, and those who are looking for something to replace their now aged Eldos.

    C'mon GM make it make it make it

    Re: Coupe de Ville return!

    Very nice job and an interesting idea, but I'd give it a wider rear-roof side panel ("C" pillar, I think it's called), and smaller rear quarter windows.

    I say Cadillac needs 2 coupes, a new ETC replacement based off the STS (of course with a V version) and a BLS based version, kind of like an entry level "tuner" type car with the 255hp 2.8 turbo.

    3 series, C series Mercedes, RSX, XK Jag, G35...

    I think Cadillac needs a BLS coupe, kinda like our version of an RSX: entry level tuner type coupe, it would be great with the current 2.8 turbo 255hp V6, if there was a way to stick a 300hp or so northstar or 3.6 high feature bumped in power in there and call it a V, that would be cool.

    Also an ETC replacement based on the 05 STS would be nice for the high end market. Complete with the 469hp V version. Oh, and don't forget convertables of both.

    Re: Coupe de Ville return!

    Wow, that looks good!

    but 2 things... I don't see the market for it anymore...

    and 2, because of the style of new cars (small fenders, small trunk, very small overhangs both front and rear) that photoshop looks very out of proportion.

    While the '93 DeVille is overall small in my book, I have to say, it is a near 100% to scale in proportion to older 2 door luxury cars, I mean you can break the car into 3 sections fender/door/quarter panel, and all 3 of those sections are similar size.

    the DeVille is now dead, so we can just forget about that.

    I say leave the Coupe DeVille how it was, it was a great car when it left in 1993, though unrecognized by the masses, it'll be a classic soon. Here is a 1993 Coupe DeVille that will live on forever.... my baby:



    Also, as far as I am concered, the last *real* Cadillac to be a 2 door was the 2002 Eldorado. REAL Cadillacs are not 3 random letters. The Eldorado has has styling cues that lived on for DECADES, not Cadillac styling cues, but Eldorado-only. 2 of these are the fact that the fenders are *taller* then the hood, and the doors are pillar less, it is a true Coupe design.

    No 3 letters will ever mean what the Eldorado ment, I want an Eldorado pretty bad.... just to say I have a Cadillac Eldorado. IMO, "Coupe DeVille" and "Eldorado" are the 2 names that go unmistakably with Cadillac.

    If I wasn't getting the Jeep as a next vehicle (I need a change) I would have an Eldorado. Hopefully in the up coming years I will be able to pick up a mint 1995 Eldo ETC, one day when I have my own house and the garage space, I want..... need one of those cars, I love the interior, I love the Northstar, that is true Cadillac in the 90's, before they became alphabet soup, and the cars were designed for a market that they were not marketed to.

    one day I'll have it, that 1995 ETC is the top on the list of must have 90's Cadillacs. The only thing that would be above it would be a '93 Coupe DeVille.... but, well, I already own that.

    How about the removing that pillar at all. As I know the MB's CL-Class doesn't have it.

    Re: Coupe de Ville return!

    i would buy that. And the BLS would cool as a coupe. To bad we wont get it at all. Man a turbo 2.8 with a 6 speed in a car that small, damn! Coupe of that would be cool too....BLC(base level coupe..?)

    That looks even better. Just like the CTS, this design is color sensitive. I like this.

    Re: Coupe de Ville return!

    Great photo job! I prefer not to have a CDV with the DTS body. It was good during the 90's and prior. My favorite was the triple white Liberty Edition. I am not sold on the rear of the 2006 because it looks like the rear of the 80's Monte Carlo. The above image of the proposed CDV looks like a new Monte Carlo.
