One of the most talked about programs going on inside GM right now is the "Alpha" platform car, a small, RWD platform that will underpin Cadillac's future entry level car, code named "ATS". Any mention of those three letters can cause such a stir around the board that it sends threads into the double digit page level in less than a few hours. The ATS program is still under construction, and has apparently encounterd a few problems, but that does not stop the massive rush of people clamouring for more info. So when keen-eyed GMI'er, Elvisuperman spotted this picture in a video that plays when you first visit www.GM.com, he was quick to screen capture it and posted it up on the board!
What we see here the basic chassis of what looks like to be a rear-wheel drive, four door sedan, and one that is currently not in production. The long dash-to-axle ratio, combined with what looks to be short overhangs in the front, a rakish C pillar, and heavy creases in the rear quarter panel has sparked interest in this thread. When paired next to a spy-shot of the ATS running around Milford Proving grounds, the similarities are beyond coincidental. When compared to other upcoming GM products, none are a closer match then that of the ATS. Great eye by Elvisuperman as well as Envoy4Life for comparing the spy pictures with the shot of the mystery car!
