When the Cadillac CTS Coupe Concept was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show in January, no overt mention was made that the car would go into production. But c'mon, it's a no brainer if Caddy wants to compete with its German rivals on every level. Though we still have no official word on the CTS Coupe's production plans, Car and Driver actually spotted two prototypes in the desert undergoing testing. How's that for production confirmed?
Though the rear end of the coupe is covered, engineers were forced to keep exposed those sweet center-mounted dual exhaust tips that carry over from the concept. As for the rest of the car, it doesn't take much brain power to imagine a CTS with two doors instead of four. The CTS Concept itself is a veiled production car, so we don't expect much to change at all on its journey to the dealer lot.

Now, let's hope C&D keeps its cameras focused on the horizon for any sight of a pre-production Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. Thanks for the tip, Mac!

      Great that the central exhaust is still there - C&D and Automobile both said it would be gone on the production one. As I'm reading those comments looking at my neighbor's VW GTI R32 wondering why GM couldn't do the same...

      hmm... looks like the grapevine North of LA... going to Buttonwillow I bet.

      I'd rather have a Coupe 60.

      Mmmmm. sexy car. I love it.

      Is the camo really necessary? Anyone interested already knows what this going to look like.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'll buy one if it matches the 3 Series and G37 standards...
        • 6 Years Ago
        matches....uhhh...try EXCEEDS.

      yummers.
      Interstingly though, the same Car & Driver folks suggest the production coupe would NOT have the exhaust and a couple other circuit car items. They so crazy.

      Just slap that V motor in there and everything will be alright. In fact, ship it ASAP! pick up the market from the folks who can't get a GT-R (insane markeup, low volume, etc etc).

      I truly would welcome this car - and thankfully have another 18 months on my current lease for it to percolate into the marketplace!

      Cadillac might have a winning formula with this car. We've all seen the BMW, MB and Acura Hatchbacks go the way of the Doh-Doh Bird, but Cadillac created a hatchback looking car that has a regular opening trunk. That's Imaginative! I'm glad to see they keep center exhaust that's too Sweet!

      • 6 Years Ago
      They should give it a back end like the XLR.
