NAIAS 2014 Highlights: 2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

Six years ago, Cadillac surprised the Detroit auto show crowd with an audacious “concept” for a two-door CTS that even the most dim-witted at the old, pre-bankruptcy GM must have thought was a good idea for production. When the first CTS coupe finally emerged, it stood as a testament to the “new GM,” which would produce stunningly designed cars people actually wanted to buy. 

Indeed, the coupe consistently accounted for more than a quarter of CTS traffic while also blessing Cadillac showrooms with its good looks. Yet we’re told that there is no plan to update this crown jewel for the third-generation CTS, which will make do with just a sedan body style. Instead, Cadillac will push the compact ATS coupe, which arrives at this year’s Detroit show with some fanfare, although the sort usually accorded a Member of Parliament rather than the Queen.
