I heard it from an interview with Bob Putz. He siad he could not speak about it on camera. HmmmmmmHmmm... I usually try to keep up on future model speculation but this is the first I've heard about a possible "kappillac." If I did hear about it at some point I must have quickly forgotten it as there hasn't been that much talk on it.
I don't think I would agree with that move, probably because I don't think Cadillac needs to compete with BMW in every segment. With the XLR and the upcoming CTC-C (which btw, I think is a great move and am really looking forward to) that gives Cadillac two different convertibles, which I think is more than enough for one car company to have.
However, I've been saying for a long time that if the General were to roll out another kappa it should go to Buick. Maybe because I'm slightly biased toward Buick but they desperately need an image/halo car. IMO, a nice, little, upscale Buick roadster would be just what the doctor ordered. Design it using the Velite as a starting point and they'd be in business. I think I like this idea because despite the many jeers towards it I have always liked the Reatta.
Either way, it doesn't really matter what I think since ol' Lutzy-boy never bothers to return my calls...
Although I don't have the GM news link to provide; it has definetly been confirmed that the CTS will be available as a 2 door coupe and a 2 door coupe with a retractable hard top.I'm new to this forum. Like most of the other coupe lovers in this group, I'm trying to find some solid information regarding the CTS (c) coupe. Several publications have reported that a coupe will be built but the timing has ranged from 08 as an 09 to 2010 or beyond.
I've been a coupe (two door) owner most of my driving life, several Chevys, Olds and Acura. The best being the 89 Acura Legend the absolute worst being an 87 Olds Delta 88. I've been diverted from coupes for the past 10 years by three SUV's but now the thought of a CTS Coupe has me openly salivating.
Is there any official word on a CTS Coupe? Will it be 08, 09 or beyond?
I need to know because I'm beginning to waiver in favor of an 08 CTS, which I think is gorgeous in just about every way except is has two too many doors.
I went to The 2008 Orange County (CA) Auto Show this past Fri. I talked to a Cadillac Rep. that confirmed the CTS coupe & wagon will be in production for 09. He said both cars might debut at the Detroit Auto Show. The V will also return in 09 in both the coupe & sedan with a possibility of the wagon having a V badge.I don't think we'll see a CTS coupe for a couple of years - though it IS confirmed.. I seriously doubt there will be a V12 or even a V10 in Cadillac's near future.. Cadillac needs to compete with the Mercedes S-Class and Lexus LS "V8" before going after their larger engines...
