When we had the new Cadillac CTS in for a review last year, it impressed us enough to give it an Editors' Choice. At the 2008 Detroit auto show, Cadillac is capitalizing on its success with that car by showing off a coupe version. This coupe design concept does away with the rear doors, stretches the front doors, and pulls the roof line all the way back to the trunk lip, creating a fast back look. In addition, it achieves more sporty lines by emphasizing the connection between the A-pillar and the hood. Overall, the car represents an uncompromising demonstration of Cadillac's Art and Science design language.

Cadillac positioned the CTS sedan as a sport-luxury car, with emphasis on the sport. In our review, we found it to be a very able performer, making this Coupe Concept an attractive option. But Cadillac hasn't announced any plans to make a production version and will probably be working on updates to its other models using the same technologies as found in the CTS.
