Hot off the wire is GM's surprise announcement that Cadillac will unveil a CTS Coupe Concept at its press conference later this morning. We've been expecting a CTS Coupe as part of the diversification of that model's offerings, and this concept should give us a great idea of what the probable production car will look like. Photos won't be released until closer to showtime, and we'll get them up as soon as they're released. Joining the CTS Coupe will be the Cadillac Provoq hydrogen concept, the CTS-V and Escalade Hybrid, which round out the Caddy contingent. Stay tuned for more.

UPDATE: The CTS Coupe Concept has been revealed!
