Re: Cadillac plans three high-performance models – The Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail section Globe Drive has a good summary of upcoming Cadillacs:

The highlight is a reported production version of the hot-looking Converj plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that wowed onlookers at the Detroit auto show early this year. The others will be CTS-V variants of the Sport Wagon and upcoming CTS Coupe.

All three will offer versions of the 556-horsepower, supercharged V-8 currently in the Cadillac CTS-V sedan. This 6.2-litre monster engine is based on the one in the 638-hp Corvette ZR1.

GM’s outspoken vice chairman Bob Lutz told Car and Driver magazine that you’ll be able to get a CTS-V wagon after the CTS-V coupe’s debut next summer, and that the CTS-V wagon is expected to help make wagons cool again in North America.

Only one correction — the upcoming Cadillac Converj will of course use the Voltec extended range electric powertrain, and will not be available in a V series model with a 6.2L supercharged V8.  That would kind of defeat the point of the new Electric Eldorado, as I like to call it.
