Originally expected to debut at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show last year, the production version of the new Cadillac CTS Coupe ultimately wound up a no-show after severe financial woes forced GM to revise their plans. Officially scrapping the 2010 CTS Coupe’s L.A. debut, GM also ordered a delay of production, pushing the CTS Coupe’s drop date back to summer 2010. With the possibility of a 2010 MY debut off the table, hype for the Cadillac CTS Coupe dwindled, the only updates arriving in the form of expertly-timed spy shots. On Tuesday, however, a single production photo of the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe was leaked from GM’s 117-page report on future viability submitted to the U.S. Treasury. According to GM, the company’s hope for future sustainability lies within the continued success of their core brands, one of which is Cadillac. Declaring a renewed dedication to introducing more innovative, forward-thinking products, GM has given production of the 2010/2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe the green-light and tentatively plans to debut it alongside the Cadillac CTS sedan.
Currently, GM has yet to set a concrete date for the CTS Coupe’s drop date, but they have confirmed that a high-performance, 500+ horsepower CTS-V variant will be joining the CTS lineup.
