With the planned introduction of the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe next year, we’re sure there would be legions of fans out there waiting for news of a convertible version of the luxurious sports coupe.

Sadly, the chances of Cadillac launching a drop-top CTS are next to nil, despite the new CTS Coupe having the lines and body that would be ideal without a roof.

According to a Cadillac official, there will be no Cadillac CTS convertible--end of story.

"Nope," he said, "no convertible. With the arrival of the coupe, the CTS line is complete."

This means that CTS fans will have to make do with either the regular CTS, high-performance CTS-V, or the upcoming CTS Coupe and CTS Sport Wagon.

  1. Encouraging to see Cadillac will concentrate on proper performance models and not the "fluff" stuff for Rodeo Drive. Why would anyone want a performance car with a substantial part of the structure removed?

    Bad stuff?

  2. The CTS Coupe is nearly a fastback - There's no way they could easily have a convertible without reenginering the entire aft clip.

  3. Like it or not, there is a market for mid-luxury convertibles that Cadillac has been missing out on since 1976. A CTS convertible would have fit perfectly as the sole U.S. competitor to the BMW 3-Series, Audi A4, Volvo C70, Infiniti G37, Mercedes CLK, and Lexus ISC convertibles. I am looking for something like this to be my next car and had been hoping to hear about a CTS convertible so I could buy American. I guess GM would prefer that my $50k goes to Germany, Sweden, or Japan.

  4. Hi Guy's,
    the basic design of the CTS coupe, particularly the high belt line, would make a convertible difficult.
