Autoblog reader Michael C. swears that someone besides himself must've come up with this bright idea before, but we can say as a matter of fact this is the first one we've seen. Michael took the teaser image General Motors released this month of Bob Lutz and Ed Welburn pulling the covers back every so slightly on the yet-to-be-released 2008 Cadillac CTS. Lutz yanked the sheet back just enough, however, to give us all a clear view of half of the car's front end. Since vehicles are generally symmetrical, Michael had the bright idea of squaring up the shot and flipping the one side over to reveal the full face of the 2008 Cadillac CTS in all its glory, and without breaking any embargoes. Well done, Michael.

      Crappy?! Yeah, right! The CTS is just dogged by the rags of the automotive world. Its a great, underrated machine. Oh and have you driven the new CTS to form your opinion or are you just a troll. I thot so.

      I just knew it ... there are two Bob Lutz's.

      Perhaps one is an evil twin or clone!

      I agree; Lutz looks very flat; he is much more rounded in real life.

      I'm a student interested in why American Car manufacturers are losing market share to foreign companies, and what it would take to regain the lead in world car sales.

      Fugly. Just like all other Cadillac products. At least they're consistent.

      For God's sakes Jason, this is just a picture that Mike was able to enhance for reader enjoyment. You are such a putz.

      This is rubbish!
      Cars are only symmetrical if they are photographed head-on and this car has not been photshopped head-on in the original photograph.

      So this makes the car look flat in front when it is really very much curved:

      As you can see in those photos.

      More Lutz is always good.

      Well Michael C, thats definetly not something I would of thought to do... Nice job thinking there..

      And Jason your a Dushe bag... That car is so close to head on that its nearly unnoticable that this is a mirrored profile shot.. Well except for the fact there is two Bobs, the sheet cover the car has a unnatural bed in it at the center point, and the Cadillac Symble is not naturaly symmetrical....

      That front has too many platform edges. Imagine washing it on a Sat morning, what an ordeal.
