2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Is Go, Coming In May

Cadillac spokespeople confirmed with us Friday the Cadillac CTS Coupe will receive a 2011 model year designation, hitting dealer lots next May. But with the two-door Cadillac receiving the same engines as the CTS sedan, whither the CTS-V Coupe?

That's a good question. Whereas once we were told the CTS-V Coupe was "still being looked at," as of Friday we've been told it's not only a "go" — it's coming in May alongside the plain ol' CTS Coupe. Can someone say M6 Coupe-killer?

Bad news for BMW and Porsche in particular. They are struggling with lower sales and with each other against Audi. Last thing they needed was a new car to contend with.

But isn't this GM cross competition with the CTSV Sedan, Pontiac G8, Corvette C6, Z06, ZR1, and Camaro SS? And personally think that they need to step back from the drawing table and consolidate what will sell, what is worth keeping and trim what will not get new buyers. In short, become more like Honda, VW and Ford. Cross brand competition is what helped doom GM in the first place. . . "Goodness all these RWD to choose from, guess I'll go buy that new 2010 Ford Mustang GT500 supersnake instead."
