They already put a detuned LS9 into the CTS-V...Cien...Sixteen...hell, they havent built a world class V8 powered midsized sedan in...um...ever?
Realize that Caddy is in uncharted territory.
In related news...I wish Caddy would put the LS3 in the CTS.

haha, working on it! check out my youtube page (see sig below) pretty much daily as I put more up as fast as I can!more videos like this please!!!
You have to keep in mind that going from concept car to production is a very difficult task indeed, especially when the concept car is so radical like caddy's have been. With the industry being so risky, and development costs high, putting a radical car on the road could ultimately be a loss. I'm sure the boys at GM can figure out when and if producing some of these cars will be worth it.Thanks much! The year it came out I was blown away and even now I find the profile stunning...am using that as my wallpaper after someone here recently shared a link to a site with concept pics. That fall, a front view was on the cover of Auto Week with the bold title "The Car Cadillac MUST Build"...the guy who owns Dominos pizza tried to write Roger Smith a check for something like $20 million to pay back all the development costs right there on the Detroit Auto Show floor. Roger Smith declined the check AND killed both the Voyage and sister car Solitaire before negotiating for himself a sickeningly huge retirement package (after having ravaged GM and laying off thousands of workers) and leaving GM. At one point this car WAS to have been launched as a 1991 model....I am convinced that had it and the Solitaire been built, Cadillac would have not begun to sink in sales and prestige. Even today, both cars would look awesome on the road or in a parking lot. Sadly, GM's penchant for NOT putting into production its best concepts, including those by Cadillac (Cien, Sixteen) continues...and they wonder why they languish as others leap frog past them year after year.
Do you have any stand alone reviews for the 300zx?haha, working on it! check out my youtube page (see sig below) pretty much daily as I put more up as fast as I can!
Not sure yet, I am still only on 1990 and have 18 more seasons to go throughDo you have any stand alone reviews for the 300zx?
yeah I saw that, pretty awesome! But I would like a more in depth stand alone review, rather than a performance based comparison test. I think it would be cool to see some import sedan reviews as well, like the camcords, to see how they started to take a bite out of the marketshare.Not sure yet, I am still only on 1990 and have 18 more seasons to go through
I think you are referring to the comparison test I have?
I agree. I really see it too, even if the Voyage is much sleeker.The Voyage did have an effect on production Cadillacs. I see a lot of its influence in the '94 Deville.
My point is that from the out of the world concepts like this car to the sixteen/cien cars, to just even making a solid midsized sport luxury sedan with a V8 engine, Caddy hasnt gotten there yet.Good point, except the Cien has 12 cylinders and the Sixteen has.....um.....hold it.......16.
So whats your point?
