Cadillac is planning building a limited-edition CTS-V coupe for the 2015 model year. Details of the 2015 model – which should end a five-year run of the current model that allowed Cadillac gain back credibility among consumers – will be disclosed to dealers in a few weeks, according to spokesman David Caldwell.
Cadillac introduced the current-generation CTS-V coupe in 2010. He said that Cadillac parent General Motors is expecting to build "a few hundred" units before ending output by the fall. The 2015 V-series run, however, include the current-generation CTS-V wagon and sedan, which production will end sometime this summer, Caldwell said.
He said that Cadillac is planning on how it would manage the transition, noting that the V series is “very important to the brand." Cadillac is planning to roll out the next-generation CTS high-performance models as early as next spring.
While Cadillac is likely to build sedan and coupe versions, it isn't expected to keep the wagon in the lineup. Cadillac's V-series is a line racetrack-ready cars launched in 2004. They feature supercharged V-8 engines and high-performance hardware like magnetic damping and Brembo brakes.
