A new set of rendered photos sourced from a General Motors design patent with the USPTO appear to show a future Cadillac Coupe.
As first reported by our sister site, Cadillac Society, the design patent in question (patent number D821,923) was applied for by GM’s technology subsidiary on February 14th, 2017 and then granted on July 3rd, 2018. The patent does not mention Cadillac specifically, but there is no mistaking the renderings contained therein as anything but a two-door Cadillac coupe.
Official patent documents list Jaehoon Lee of Prahran, Australia as the inventor. A search on LinkedIn shows a Jae Hoon Lee being employed by General Motors in Melbourne, Australia as a Creative Designer. Mr. Lee previously worked at GM Korea, according to the profile.

The GM Authority Take
The images/renderings uncovered by this filing may very well be our first look yet at a Cadillac CT5 Coupe. The probability of a two-door coupe variant of the upcoming Cadillac CT5 has recently come into question given the ongoing decline in sedan sales, but this patent filing and images appear to be an unofficial (yet quite clear) confirmation that the CT5 will have a coupe variant – and that this is how it will look.
