The Cadillac CTS family will expand to include the Cadillac CTS Coupe, or 2-door CTS in January. The CTS-V Coupe is expected to premiere at the Los Angeles International Auto show. The CTS Coupe Concept appeared in 2008.
The Coupe will likely be available with the 3L 260hp V6, a 3.6L DI 304 Hp V6, or in CTS-V Coupe form with the LSA Supercharged 6.2L V8 for 556 hp. Other than being a 2-door CTS, it inherits all the luxury performance goodness of the CTS Sedan, or the CTS-V Sedan. It is also possible that we will see new engines — Turbocharged DOHC V6’s in this car.
The CTS Coupe is the modern Cadillac Eldorado, or the 2011 Cadillac Eldorado — although Cadillac will certainly keep the name “CTS Coupe”.
Cadillac had the prototype CTS Coupe at the Montecello Motorclub for the CTS-V Challenge Event.
I hope this detail with “Cadillac” written in the legacy script on the brake calipers makes it to production.
The rear of the Cadillac CTS Coupe looks great. It uses a sculpted center dual exhaust.
The side vent has the V-Series characteristic stainless steel mesh insert, probably only on the CTS-V Coupe.
BodybyFisher and I were at the Event together, and he shot these last few photos. Thanks for sharing them on the forum and here on our Caddyinfo.com Cadillac Blog.
This is a shot with me posing in front of the prototype:
The Cadillac CTS Coupe 2-door promises to be very popular. As I told the Cadillac Team, “You can’t get this one into production fast enough!”
Cadillac CTS Coupe Release Date: Cadillac has not committed to a release date yet, but I am guessing the CTS coupe will be released in August/September 2010 as a 2011 model.
