They should and that's exactly what we need
Michael Luck Jul 09, 2013
The CTS interior is cheap compared to the Mercs and BMWs, but it's still miles ahead of other GM products. I like that its getting noticeably better every generation. Now if we can kill off the rattles and squeaks.
Craig Lafey Jul 07, 2013
Damn it Cadillac make up ur mind already!!
Aislin Cooper Jul 07, 2013
Wrong
Aislin Cooper Jul 07, 2013
I knew that last report was wront
Paul Dickey Jul 07, 2013
No Gustavo. Just no.
logan.neet Jul 07, 2013
Pedro's got the idea lol, sounds good to me
Gustavo Kelso Jul 07, 2013
Bean counters are in the way of Cadillac Producing a decent car. The Cts V is decently powered, however for 50,000 £ the interior is painfully chintzy for a new car.
Patrick Schalk Jul 07, 2013
Hahaha that's what I'm sayin Pedro
Johnny Matias Jul 06, 2013
Fakir that doesn't make sense. You're saying money makers are getting in the way of making money? It's the opposite. If a better car than a BMW comes out, it won't replace every bimmer out there instantly. It'll take time. And I can't wait for this.
Rob Clark Jul 06, 2013
This is a no brainer IMO.
Pedro Alves Jul 06, 2013
To bad they don't make a car like this for the working people with no interest no money down no dealer fees and low payments lol Hey help me help you
Pedro Alves Jul 06, 2013
Why not the world still has millionaires to add to their collection
Joshua Rutkowski Jul 06, 2013
Just make the damn Cien.
Jonathan Ippolito Jul 06, 2013
Well let's hope that there is a V model of this new omega based 7 series model .
abraham.mendoza.39 Jul 06, 2013
Well those bean counters didn't seem to mind the V series.
phillthegman Jul 06, 2013
yeah if you would intentionally pay more for a crappier car go for it I'll still roll in my lax
Lou Guerrero Jul 06, 2013
I see you, Vinny! Thought of you when I read this.
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
Really cause I'm seeing more and more cts and alot less BMW and Mercedes
Fakir Smith Jul 06, 2013
It will suck whatever it is. Bean counters always get in the way. Look how long the cts has been out and most would still choose a BMW over it.
Will Will Jul 06, 2013
The carbuzz rumour department couldn't make up their mind.
Joshua Jackson Jul 06, 2013
Doesn't matter. Caddy always have gorgeous cars they never produce... But hey, anyone remember the 1995 Cadillac Catera?? That's what they manufacture...
Vinny Coppola Jul 06, 2013
I said that last week!.....the canceled a MB CL / bentley GT fighter
Jonathan Ippolito Jul 09, 2013
I've driven and owned so many vehicles from so many countries and car companies and theirs good and bad in all of them .
Rahson Powers Jul 07, 2013
This is too sweet!
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Jul 07, 2013
I love it! So great, but needs a bigger engine.
Tim Preisinger Jul 07, 2013
This > BMW, Merc
Adam Thomson Jul 07, 2013
Obama is having a crisis
Ilya Kravchik Jul 07, 2013
I am not a fan of the Cadillac styling but I can say this car definitely has personality
Willie McGonagill Jul 07, 2013
v Someone's a little feisty
Cory Billig Jul 07, 2013
Yea I hope everyone knows Cadillac isn't ballsy enough to make this car. Everyone who's saying this is better than any BMW or merc, is an idiot. Any other company could make a cool concept and just not make it too...
Patrick Pell-Richards Jul 07, 2013
One of the most beautiful things I've seen!
Oscar Galvan Jul 06, 2013
I am BMW all the alway but there is no way that this would not sell over anything the other luxury brands have to offer
Jacob Burford Jul 06, 2013
Looks great! Defiantly cool as a land yacht!
Zeus Mocha Jul 06, 2013
This is way better than anything Mercedes or BMW has to offer right now. The problem is they won't build it.
Emmanuel Mateo Jul 06, 2013
This is deaf way better than any BMW or Merc. The sharp pointy lines is what makes Cadillacs different than any other company
Jed Hamilton Jul 06, 2013
Not even close
Patrick Schalk Jul 06, 2013
This car looks better than ANYTHING BMW or Merc could build.
Jed Hamilton Jul 06, 2013
It doesn't matter where it's from every country has good and bad cars
Jed Hamilton Jul 06, 2013
If your referring to me I'm not
John Lanzetta Jul 06, 2013
@tyler exactly what I was thinking. This is one of the best looking cars ever, and there's no possible reason that you can't like it...unless your already biased towards German cars like 90% of people on here...
Tyler Steiz Jul 06, 2013
Critic
Tyler Steiz Jul 06, 2013
Lol I love how when they thought this car was def not gonna happen everyone acted like they loved it and now that there's a possibility it might still happen everyone turns into a crotic
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
Hop off*
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
If u learned how to read instead of jumping all over someone's grammar u would have read the multiple times I said the kia was my girlfriends. Dumb bitch
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
And Jenni_drives needs to hope of my dick, go drive your piece of shit fiat 500, or did u come to your senses and buy a real car, and btw I don't have a Korean anything, I have a Japanese bike and an American truck
Jonathan Ippolito Jul 06, 2013
I love the idea of a big convertible Cadillac but the design and styling of this concept was executed poorly .
matt.piccolo.773 Jul 06, 2013
Everything is so... pointy
matt.piccolo.773 Jul 06, 2013
Not liking this at all. WAY too big, and a lack of flow.
Aaron Crisp Jul 06, 2013
Yeah the new ones are a bit bland, I love the classics though. And any M version is bad ass! I'd get a V model first though.
Evan Liebgott Jul 06, 2013
This might be the most beautiful car ever made, for me it's a tossup between this and the am vanquish
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
Ehhh I'm not a huge fan of BMW, find there design kinda blah, but I do like there M division cars though
Jed Hamilton Jul 06, 2013
Do you like it
Jed Hamilton Jul 06, 2013
Yep :)
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
Sad the guy with the BMW Mdivision badge a his avatar
Henz Herrero Jul 06, 2013
What happens to the cargo room when the top is down?
renick.baxter Jul 06, 2013
I'm not a big fan of Caddies either, but I got to say, there getting steadily better. What, with the CTS, and now this. ^.^ Looks great.
Jed Hamilton Jul 06, 2013
Bmw is way better
Anthony Scalise Jul 06, 2013
Looks kinda cartoonish, I don't like it
Mark Ifill-Haney Jul 06, 2013
If they build it, it'll most likely look nothing like this
Nelson Alexander Jul 06, 2013
This is sick and it will sell If they build it
Dylan Porteous Jul 06, 2013
One of my favorite designs of all time. This definitely tops BMWs old style IMO
Oleg Odessit Jul 06, 2013
Build it for sure
Jon Bowers Jul 06, 2013
I'm not a Cadillac or even a huge American car fan but this car is drop dead gorgeous! Build it Cad, I'd buy one!
Description: A production version of that large drop top would have been fantastic, but there were reportedly design as well as cost issues. This same inside source is also claiming that Cadillac will debut a new ...

Bob Ferguson confirmed the concept in Detroit to another auto media source
Jonathan Ippolito Jul 06, 2013
This car will be using the Omega platform .
Jonathan Ippolito Jul 09, 2013
This concept was not based on the Omega platform . It was based on a really stretched Alpha platform .
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Jul 07, 2013
Awesome design
Jesse Andersen Jul 07, 2013
That'll get some bitches.
Kirk Kulgavin Jul 06, 2013
I love this design. They should definitely make it!
Zeus Mocha Jul 06, 2013
Quinn yes, that's the word I was looking for. This thing is gorgeous.
Jonathan Ippolito Jul 06, 2013
Well I guess since Lincoln is clueless Cadillac has now built a concept that is a modern Cadillac version of the classics and perfect Classic Continental . This concept is such a slap in the face of Lincoln .
dillon.delricco Jul 06, 2013
reminds me of the Lincoln continental
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
Holy hell look at the size of them doors, they could shrug off a 18 wheeler
Will Will Jul 06, 2013
A 4 door 4 seater cabrio? Now that's something I've wanted for a ridiculously long time. Make one, and be sure to put me at the top of the customer list!!!
Stray Kots Jul 06, 2013
Cabinet doors!
Quinn Lessing Jul 06, 2013
God that is gorgeous
daniel.wilkinson.1257 Jul 06, 2013
four door convertible cool idea
Allen Weber Jul 07, 2013
Not diggin the front and lights... Feels to square to me .... But... Dat luxury ass lol
Sukhwinder Singh Jul 07, 2013
Omg a boat
Lee Mays Jul 06, 2013
The rear reminds me of the old Cadillac convertibles. It's definitely identifiable as a Cadillac. Nice!
Kai Andrew Carlson Jul 06, 2013
General shape makes me think of the redesign of the T-bird, horrible car. Interesting car none the less.
Jonathan Ippolito Jul 06, 2013
The proportions of the rear are just so not right .
joshua.robbins.5249 Jul 06, 2013
@Jed this thing using rolling or flipping. Like Gary said it's a land yacht. It's not made for speed but I'm sure it isn't slow. But this thing is made to cruise like most Cadillacs.
matt.piccolo.773 Jul 06, 2013
WAY too long! looks unproportionate with all that overhang
phillthegman Jul 06, 2013
back looks like a late 60s Eldorado
Carey Ronald Schuulz Jul 06, 2013
The back looks like a XJ
Taylor Rosello Jul 06, 2013
They should definitely build this!
Andrew Suliteanu Jul 06, 2013
Lol Gary I don't think I've ever read an article you haven't commented on. You must live on carbuzz :)
Gary Alaina Jul 06, 2013
This things a land yacht!
Drew Colton Wilder Jul 06, 2013
Big pimpin!
Will Will Jul 06, 2013
They have safety systems for this, just like other cabrios. My guess is that 2 'poles' will pop up from behind the rear seats's headrest area when the car flips. I think its called rollover bars, not sure.
Josh Kelley Jul 06, 2013
Same thing in every convertible
Jed Hamilton Jul 06, 2013
What happens if you crash it and it flips
Jackson Michael Jul 06, 2013
Looks fantastic from this angle
Michael Luck Jul 09, 2013
Is it coming, or is it going? Can't tell with that front end... Caddy, the car is beautiful, but give it a less Mazda like front end.
Harrison Phillips Jul 07, 2013
Classic bro with the bitches in the caddy. Love it
David Lee Jul 07, 2013
It's gorgeous, but I doubt they will ever make it.
Zeus Mocha Jul 06, 2013
If this thing comes out just like this. It will be in my top 10 maybe even 5 best looking cars.
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
Led technology is advancing very fast, headlights like this are very possible
Colby Church Jul 06, 2013
I really like the unique styling though.
Jonathan Ippolito Jul 06, 2013
The headlights are just so odd I can't see them making headlights that are even remotely close to these on a production model .
William Downs Jul 06, 2013
The way cadi is going it wouldn't surprise me to see this on the road in te near future, such a beautiful design
Peter Mark Gacek Jul 06, 2013
If Caddy builds this, I'm buying.
