One of these days, we hope we’re blown away by a Cadillac concept like we were with the Buick Avenir and, to a lesser extent, the Buick Avista. Cadillac deserves it, and we haven’t been starstruck by the brand since the Elmiraj.
We know Cadillac has a proper halo vehicle forthcoming, but brand president, Johan de Nysschen, recently stated it hasn’t completely come to life. It’s still on track, but the brand hasn’t decided on the direction it will take, according to Car and Driver.
de Nysschen was specifically concerned with his brand’s flagship vehicle “moving the needle.” Whether that means in the powertrain department, or from a design standpoint, we don’t know. But, we’re glad to hear this vehicle is taking all the time it needs to bake.
It’s very likely such a vehicle will ride on General Motors’ Omega platform, supporting rear- and all-wheel drive applications, but we’ve also heard mumblings of a mid-engine Corvette-based Cadillac supercar, too.
It’s also worthy to mention de Nysschen has expressed interest in not one, but two vehicles to sit above the 2016 Cadillac CT6.
We’ll take one stunning sedan-convertible flagship, and one Audi R8 killer, please.
