    Well GM photos suck. The have no depth. They had a Saturn look.

    These photos bring out more of the styling and actually give me a better perspective.

    I still need to see them in person but I am much more optimistic now.

    Now if they have the interior right they may just get it right.

    Now can they get people to buy it. Just having best in class is not enough when many in this class buy for image.

    It used to have 3 holes in it, but I haven't poked any recent ones.

    Of course you're right, if that big star weren't there, neither would a big junk of buyers.

    It’s approaching the size of this.



    It’s massive size makes it difficult for Most cameras to convey how big it really is. Photographing the Black Hole not so much.

    You want to take a photo of an out of focus doughnut and call it a black hole? Fine, but Krispy Kreme should be getting royalties.

But even with these photos I think it is a real stretch to say the CT5 with its sleek rwd proportions (front wheel way out front, long hood, short back) looks just like an Accord.

    Cadillac is developing a new design language and this will become as "Cadillac" as the last gen was once we get used to it.

    And I applaud that they are taking a departure from the vertical headlamps and tail lamps.






    All cars in that class have nice proportions.

    The 5 looks nice. So does the E. A6 looks great. Neither are particularly Earth-shattering designs, but no car in that class really is, CTS and CT5 included.

    The only difference is, if you take away the oversized logos on the Mercedes, Audi, and current CTS, you'd instantly know what kind of car you're looking at. This is not the case with CT5.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but the A6 is my favorite design in that class, hands down. And that's coming from a huge Audi hater.

I'm not sure why XT6 and CT5 appear so watered down with their front and rear ends but I can say I hope ALL CT5s look like that purple/plum one floating around these pages in person. That thing is actually beautiful! Something I still can't say about the XT6 unfortunately.
    I absolutely hate the Escala. I wish I could shoot whoever designed it, approved it, and decided "hey this is a great idea for Cadillac!".

    Unfortunately, I would have to pump 5.56 into a couple friends of mine if I ever did it.

    DID SOMEBODY SAY RUDDER?

    Maintain directional control with rudder. Pitch for Vyse (blue line). Mixture, props, and throttles full forward. Gear and flaps retracted as needed. ADM to see if we should feather or troubleshoot. If feather: Dead foot, dead engine. Sweep to verify. Sweep to verify once more. Throttle idle. Prop of dead engine feathered. Mixture of dead engine to idle-cutoff. Fuel selector of dead engine set to off. Add in up to 5* of bank into good engine to help reduce rudder load.

    Ah ****, having flashbacks to flying the Seminole. Lol. Gotta love engine out prop ops/EFATO scenarios in light twins.

    Well Einstein, how do you know a black hole isn’t actually a doughnut of galactic proportions?

    Omw to go find out. Being sucked into a black hole like a spaghetti strand is a risk I'm willing to take for an intergalactic-sized doughnut reward. It's a no-brainer.

    You’d better hurry. The Green Lantern Corp is on the case, so It’ll be gone real soon. They’re Intergalactic Cops, and Cops love Doughnuts.
