General Motors held an investor conference call today, and while journalists and other parties could dial into the call or webcast, a select number of investors were shown a presentation in-person.
That’s where Mark Reuss, GM President with oversight over the brand, showed off a mystery Cadillac sports car.
During Reuss’ remarks, he played a video for those present at the investor conference that was not shared via the webcast for those dialed into the presentation. Reuss mentioned the car is part of what will define Cadillac, even as the brand moves to rival Tesla as GM’s electric-car division.
We know it was a sports car of sorts because of the sounds. While we aren’t privy to the video, the sound did play through on the call, which was clearly a V8 engine with some sort of forced induction. Upcoming cars that could sport a V8 engine include a CT4-V, CT5-V, or a mid-engine Cadillac sports car. Although the idea of a mid-engine Cadillac sports car has been largely dismissed, photos of a key fob re-ignited rumors such a car is in the pipeline.
Aside from the sound, we don’t know have any other information on what the car may be. Cadillac’s CT4 and CT5 sedans, which replace the ATS and CTS, are due soon, and we’ll likely learn more about the larger CT5 first and a potential V variant to replace the beloved CTS-V. A source told GM Authority we may hear more about the car this Sunday when Cadillac reveals the XT6 crossover in Detroit ahead of the North American International Auto Show.
