Although there’s no question that crossovers and SUVs are the dominant body styles these days, there’s still something to be said for a low-slung two-door coupe, doubly so when that two-door is rocking a Cadillac badge. Now, we’re getting a look at a futuristic Cadillac coupe concept that has us wishing for the two-door’s return to the fold.
Coming to us from the official General Motors Design Instagram feed (@generalmotorsdesign), this concept was created by Cadillac Lead Creative Designer Zhou Fang, and looks like it was delivered straight out of a sci-fi movie. The body panels are a mix of smoothed-out curves and sharp angles, with hard creases and pointed edges offsetting the pointed, geometric forms.
The front end includes a beak-like nose section above panel-like lower aero elements, leading back into octagonal fenders housing oversized wheels wrapped in paper-thin tires. The roofline stretches back at an exceedingly low angle, with a roof-mounted fin running down the spine. Further right angles are used for the tail lamps.
Although it’s far from an exact match, looking at this futuristic Cadillac coupe concept reminds us of the Cadillac Cien concept, which GM Authority recently captured at the newly reopened Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
As GM Authority covered back in 2019, the Cadillac coupe is sadly no longer with us, exiting with the departure of the Cadillac ATS. Although the brand still has quite a bit of excitement in its lineup (the recently debuted 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-Blackwing certainly come to mind), the same company that brought us the Cadillac Coupe de Ville and Eldorado currently only offers four-door sedans, crossovers, and SUVs.
