Fighting it out for the hears and wallets of coupe and convertible buyers was originally going to be left to Cadillac's upcoming BMW 3 Series competitor, currently codenamed the ATS. The rationale was that a more traditional coupe roofline and folding convertible top would integrate into the ATS's rump more smoothly than the angular CTS.
For the next generation CTS, Motor Trend says Cadillac is changing the car's underpinnings from the current Sigma platform to the Alpha rear-drive platform, which will also see duty under the next Chevrolet Camaro.
Rumor has is that Cadillac is working on an even more radical design for the next-generation CTS Coupe, which will likely share its doors with the Camaro. And as we've heard so many times before, there may be a low-volume flagship model from Cadillac, nosing its way past the six-figure price point.
