2008 CTS Interior

Several readers have emailed us with a link to this forum thread at GM Inside News, which features a new spy shot of the '08 Cadillac CTS interior. The photo, apparently shot while the car was testing at the Nurburgring, is of the same interior that Bob Lutz showed Steve Kroft a mock-up of during the now-famous 60 Minutes segment (click to view promo with RealPlayer) that sent enthusiasts and bloggers into a tizzy back in April.

The leather-covered dash and snazzy center stack are clearly visible, and it's clear that what we're seeing is likely the most well-executed GM interior yet. Over the last couple of years, we have seen immense strides in that department by the General. The Pontiac G6 and Solstice, the Saturn Aura, Sky and Outlook, the Buick Enclave concept and the Tahoe, Yukon, and Escalade have really set the stage and raised expectations. When this CTS finally makes its formal first appearance, its interior will probably be in a class all its own.

Between the undisguised looks at the front end and interior provided by Lutz and the numerous spy photos which are appearing in different outlets on a regular basis, the level of anticipation surrounding the CTS replacement continues to steadily build. And based on what we've seen so far, it looks like The General's doing its best to simply blow us away come next year's auto show season.
