Cadillac had a roadster in its product portfolio. Since the
XLR went out of production at the end of 2009, to be precise. But while the
CTS Coupe (and its high-performance counterpart, the
CTS-V Coupe) may fill the niche for a svelte wreath-badged two-door,
Cadillac may be planning on something a little more windy – and more affordable – in the near future.
According to our compatriots over at Inside Line, Cadillac is considering spinning a two-seat roadster off the rear-wheel-drive platform of the new
ATS sedan. If given the green light, the
ATS roadster would likely be positioned squarely at the likes of the
Mercedes-Benz SLK and
BMW Z4, maximizing the use of the ATS platform while giving The General a potentially intriguing rival to its German competitors.
