With the departure of the Cadillac ATS Coupe last year, the luxury automaker now offers no two-door models. A new Cadillac isn’t believed to be in the works, either, with much of the brand’s focus currently on its upcoming electric vehicle programs.
While it’s highly unlikely another Cadillac coupe will arrive any time soon, we think the Cadillac CT4 and performance-minded Cadillac CT4-V could still serve as the basis for an attractive coupe model variant. To see if our hunch was correct, we partnered with our sister site, Cadillac Society, to bring you this digital rendering of a two-door Cadillac CT4-V Coupe.
The CT4-V’s styling actually lends itself fairly well to a coupe shape, in our opinion. Apart from the chopped rear doors, we didn’t have to change too much to make the four-door Cadillac CT4-V look like a production-ready two-door.
But while the front and rear fascias are unchanged, there’s a clear difference in the way the car sits when viewed head-on or from the rear. The coupe has a much lower and wider stance than the sedan, giving it a more wide-set and performance-focused look. Red brake calipers and large brake rotors also lend to the car’s appearance and help make its sporting aspirations clear.
While Cadillac has no current plans to produce a new coupe, there may be a small glimmer of hope for two-door Cadillac fans. Brand president Steve Carlisle did not rule out the possibility of a new Cadillac coupe when speaking to Cadillac Society in a recent interview, saying an automaker’s portfolio changes as consumer tastes and trends ebb and flow. He also hinted that the scalability and superior packaging of electric platforms, such as GM’s new BEV3 architecture, may open up the door for interesting new vehicle programs in the future.
“Never is a long time. The way I look as it, body styles go through cycles, roughly every 10 years,” he said. “But with electrification, the architecture is so different, it opens up opportunities for different things.”
“But I will tell you one other thing,” Carlisle added. “We’re not going to do what’s already been done. We’re going to do something different.”
So while a Cadillac CT4-V Coupe may not be in the cards, there’s really no telling what could be in store for Cadillac further down the road – especially as electric vehicles begin to gain market share. Nevertheless, feel free to let us know what you think of our Cadillac CT4-V Coupe rendering in the comments down below.
