General Motors hasn't built a car worthy of the high echelons of where the Aston Martin and Mercedes S-Class compete since the early 1950's.

Why? Because it was at the point in time General Motors decided to take the Cadillac brands down about 3 notches to sell to a wider audience of consumers.

In the process, Cadillac because a rebadge brand. And then then began to lose its brand luster. And then finally lost its preferred luxury car status to Mercedes in the 1970's And then lost the sales ranking to Lincoln. And then again to Lexus. And then again to BMW and Mercedes.

Do you expect Cadillac to EVER build a car of this caliber when they can't even get a 5-series competitor right???
NEVER NEVER NEVER!!!
They don't know how, and they don't get it.

And lest not forget.... Ford still owns a percentage stake in Aston....
