    Nice concept. One question what are the lines behind the front tire on before the door?
    Not that it is going to happen but what about less or no B pillar?

    THe lines are just for a bit of character.
    The B-Pillar is necessary for structural integrity, improved handling (less body flex), and no wind noise.

    I know the reasons for a B pillar it just, IMO, look better. Besides it is a concept. Who knows GM could build a carbon fibre CTS.
    What about extending the lines across the door?

    Very nice. Now if GM would do this, they'd have the parts ready for other RWD coupes down the line...

    The B pillar is the same on both models. Are you talking about the C-Pillar?

    The B-Pillar does look a little wider at the bottom in the second picture. . . I definitely like the first version better.

    You are right actually, I didn't purposely change the B-pillar, but now that I look at it, it did change while I was chopping. Oh well.

    yeah i did actually mean the C-pillar, my bad....i could care less about the small change to the B-pillar. and i think the stuff on the front fender looks great in the second version.
