    I like the greenhouse, a little bit of throwback there.

    I'd love to see a large CL-Class-killing Cadillac Eldorado. Nice work.

    Those 1975-78 Eldorados are one of GM's best designs ( I own a -76

    Doesn't seem like something that would sell well in 2017, I think the styling would progress quite a bit further by then and would probably be on a whole new platform by then as well.

    It also kinda just looks like a Camaro CTS mash up to me.

    All valid comments!

    There is a void to fill at Cadillac. To me, the CTS coupe just looks like a 4-door made into a 2-door..which it is.

    I agree with AirCleaner, we need a frameless windowed, long hood, short deck, high beltlined, wide shouldered, chopped top TRUE Eldorado!

    I am sure it will happen. The ATS and Camaro will soon be on the same platform.

    Heres another pic for some perspective..

    Re: 2017 cadillac eldorado

    I would like the Eldorado to be a large four or five seat coupe with enough room for four adults to ride in comfort and a relaxed personality with plenty of refined performance. As I mentioned earlier, it would compete with Germany's Eldorado, the Mercedes CL.




    All of that aside, I admit the Eldorado is far from what Cadillac needs the most right now.
