I have no idea how credible this is. Looks pretty cool though<br> <IMG SRC="http://forums.autoweek.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/31-14055-287479-6045/ULC%20001.jpg" BORDER="0"> <br> <IMG SRC="http://forums.autoweek.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/31-14055-287479-6046/ULC%20002.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>source: autoweek

Im not sure if Cadillac will actually do something like this. But this looks very similar to the Sixteen concept

Wow, even an STS coupe that looks liket his, to compete with the 6-series would be nice. Great find Charger.

Looks very close to the Sixteen, and unless it has a V-16 that hood is too long.

That looks to be a bad photoshop of a clay model. It would be cool to see Caddy do something like this, but this looks to be nothing more than a Caddy fanboy's wetdream.

No wonder GM executives have been driving Bentley Continentals, 612's, Astons, Lambos and other two door top end coupes. Hahaha man...it'll be a two door GT type cruiser.

Actually, a car like this will be hapening soon. Development of a 7 Series/S Class level halo car for Cadillac was underway before the the money troubles began. This car is independent of the Zeta platform that was canceled because of the current money situation. So while this may not be the exact car that will be coming within the next few years, one like it will be.<p>Also, this would make a sweet Eldorado.

I never said anything about Zeta. GM has suspended most vehicle development in order to speed up the launch of their fullsize SUV's.

They need to test the waters with the ULS and see if they can actually sell them before they do anything as ambitious as a ULC.

Maybe it's the next Eldorado. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Cadillac needs to build a high end coupe that is low-volume, more hand crafted, and truly gorgeous and fast. They should have produced the Sixteen as it was as well. Its proportions are stunning and a showcar to the showroom would boost Cadillac's standard of the world reputation. Moreover the Escalade series needs to share no body parts with the Suburban/Tahoe/Avalanche. I would think that with Hummer in the fold there is no need for Caddy SUVs but there should be Cadillac Hummer dealers.

Assuming this is an image of something created in some way by GM (either on pc or clay), this is obviously a rendering of a show car, not of a production model. You can tell because it has several of the details that all the Art and Science showcars have had, which have not made the transition into any of the production models, such as:<p>- Razor thin headlights the flow seemlessly into the equally thin foglights in the bumper facia.<p>- Way Oversized wheels<p>- Razor thin fin-style tail-lamps<p>- exhaust caps imbeded into the bumper cap.<p>Whatever this rendering is, it's not of a production model. If this happens to be real, it's of a showcar.

Too bad thje fins havent been placed on a production model yet. they go well with the art and science theme and if done right it would bring a little retro flair IMO.
