Sources close to Cadillac
spilled the beans to AutoWeek about the addition of a coupe to the CTS
lineup when the sedan's second generation debuts in 2008 as a 2009 model. While not officially approved, Lutz
the car czar reportedly "really wants it" and since the lion's share of its components, sheetmetal and powertrains would come straight from the CTS the associated costs shouldn't be too much for the General to swallow. AutoWeek, however, expresses concern over the coupe's size, which will be larger than potential competitors including the BMW
3-Series coupe, Infiniti G35
and upcoming Audi A5
. A probable V-Series edition with 400-hp, however, would give it the grunt to keep up with most luxury two-doors.
