It was one of the most well received American car concepts at Detroit. Cadillac’s CTS Coupe Concept is a nice looking car, and the crowds at Detroit loved it.
Well if you were one of those people in that crowd, then rest assured your wish has been granted. The CTS Coupe has been given green light for production. GM is promising the car will be ready in 18 months time.
“This vehicle really wasn’t supposed to exist,” said Ed Welburn, GM’s vice president of Global Design. Yet plans for the coupe have been in the works since at least the middle of 2006 according to insiders.
Code-named GMX226, the 2010 Cadillac coupe should be a real hit for GM when it comes out so long as they stick to the formula and don’t start cutting costs (meaning quality).
The assembly line at the Lansing Grand River plant will start pumping these coupes out starting in early June of 2009. Production is expected to be in the range of 15,000 to 20,000 units per year and pricing has not yet been set.
