I know that all of you are tired of my, “CTS-V is underpowered,” complaints. I whine more than a supercharger in Napa Valley blahdy-blah but come on, the CTS-V is the BRZ of sedans! All I’m asking for is just barely over 15% more power. That’s the difference between a 180 hp Civic Sport and a 205 hp Civic Si with a sticker. It’s just air, Cadillac. Power should be a breeze!
And another thing, we need a proper send off for the CTS nameplate anyways!! It was robbed of some well earned superlatives. It could have been the most powerful production sedan in the world but the Hellcat Charger dropped. It could have been the fastest production sedan in the world but the Hellcat Charger allegedly can hit 204 mph.
Cut the Caddy could haves. I’m sick of Caddy should haves. I need Caddy done has and I need done has now!
Make things right and the transition to the CT5 will be far easier. Look, I even did the math:
CTS + LT5 = CT5

While Im in a quoting mood, let me see if I can remember a certain quote Johan de Nysschen made shortly after leaving Infiniti for Cadillac.
I heard a rumor that Noboru Tateishi is going to cop-out and shelve the Eau Rouge project now that I’m not there to pressure him. Tell any Cadillac or Audi engineer “build me a 560hp sports sedan” and you have to reign them in. At Infiniti, it seems easier to push water uphill. More enthusiasm for “driver’s aids”, apparently, than “driver’s cars”, in some quarters, it would seem.
I don’t know, seems like Cadillac engineers aren’t being asked for much these days... I mean Alfa Romeo comes out with one sedan that works theoretically and everyone completely forgets who has the best driving sedan line up in the industry.
You gonna take that, Cadillac?
Oh, and congrats on the Super Cruise feature. Obviously Infiniti is at its limits while Cadillac remains undefined as always.
