The GM Source.com has a nice rendering of the next CTS done by Chris Pauwels, who has had his work featured in Popular Hot Rodding.
This has much better perspective than the rendering we posted about a few days ago. Also, with the new Cadillac signature fender vents, this is likely even closer to the look the CTS will have when it bows in 2007 – likely as a 2008 model.
Expect a coupe to appear a year later with the fast rear window shown by Mr. Lutz to 60 Minutes and a V-Series that will take its power from either a supercharged Northstar or perhaps a variation on the small-block V-8 used in current Corvettes (6.0l w/ 400hp or 7.0l w/ 505hp). Given that the competition (Audi RS4, next BMW M3, etc) are all packing over 400hp, we’d bet on the supercharged Northstar route with the STS-V getting an even higher output version to maintain its place in the pecking order.
