You have to be kidding...my 2011 V Coupe has the fit, finish and overall quality of a Little Tikes Crazy Coupe (sold as Kids are Us). Those seeking a new Coupe need to look somewhere beside Cadillac.
Very cool car and nice to see Cadillac getting its groove back. Looks and performance at a relatively bargain price. gybognarjr - are you kidding? Sounds like sour grapes for someone who overpaid for a German wundercar that will get its a** kicked for 1/2 the cost. And lowoctane - rear visibility and no spare? Puhleeze! "Gee, I like that Lambo but the rear visibility is poor so I'll get the Volvo wagon instead". This car is about passion and looks. I think people need to stop judging good product based on old GM experiences and open their eyes and mind to the new reality. Your old certainties are no longer valid.
I thought this car looked sharp. Alas, it has the rear visibility of a garbage truck.Also NO spare tire, and no place to put one.Government Motors loses on the CTS Coupe!
Ugly and pointless car. Why pay a fortune for a lousy GM car?
