Early last month, Cadillac officially confirmed that the Cadillac ATS will begin production during the summer of 2012 at the GM Lansing Grand River Assembly plant. The announcement also included the first official photo of the upcoming compact sports sedan. Unfortunately, the darkened photo only showed part of the vehicle, and not the entire thing. But after some fun time with a few image-editing applications, we were able to make that photo a bit more revealing.
As you can see, the ATS will bear a resemblance to the current second-generation CTS, with sharp, angular lines in the front and rear, while the side profile encompasses an upward-sloping character line reminiscent of the 2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. As far as little details are concerned, the compact Caddy features wing mirrors mounted right above the belt line (as opposed to being mounted on the doors), some hefty disc brakes, and a set of Good Year shoes.
