sort of..i guess its a mix mercedes has C-Class, E-Class, S-Class, et al....and BMW has 3-series, 5-series, and 7-series. Cadillac has combined the 2 and has C-series, S-series, D-series i guess

CTS

The 2003 Cadillac CTS reflects the glories of Cadillac's past, and foreshadows the designs of all future Cadillacs.
The "CTS" which stands for a Cadillac C-series touring sedan, is engineered with exclusive rear-wheel-drive architecture, dubbed Sigma.
The exterior design of the CTS is crisp and clean and the interior is designed for comfort and convenience.

i think sal likes the c-series thing...in the future when the coupe and possible wagon come out it would have to be renamed just "C-Series"
