Credit goes to member dslay04 for pointing out the CAD drawing in the strategic plan thread that shows the CT6 body panels. Great catch!
As can be seen with the partial CAD overlay below - the render is a perfect copy of the CAD body and I just filled in the missing bits like glass, wheels. lower sill and rear bumper skin from the camo car photos. The only area of speculation is the front clip
So we got lucky and with that I could combine those accurate panels with the spy pics we have already seen to create these renders, which from the headlights back I am confident are 98% accurate.
Because the CAD drawing did not have the front clip I have had to guesstimate at what the grille, headlights and lower front clip may look like. But the upper part of the lights is shown so only the lower sections are unknown, and from some of the head on spy pics that show uncovered grille areas (see below) we can see it is wide and shallow. So I used the Elmiraj grille and as the panel cutout for the upper portion of the headlights looks very CTS I have used those headlights and made them fit the panels in one version and in the other did a variation on the Elmiraj/Ciel headlights.
So what do we get? We have a conservative large car that has elegant proportions and will likely have extremely well styled details, as recent Cadillac's have, and thus look even better up close. I like it, what say you?
1, 2, 3… go for it.
