  1. No LS7 = no sale. Sorry GM. If you’re going to stuff an underpowered V6 TT under the hood, then at least augment it with a 6KWh+ Battery and electric motors. 0-60 in 3.7 is embarrassing in this class.

  2. I have the present model ATS-V Coupe. How do you feel that is an embarrassment. This car gives you all you can handle.My lease is up in 2018 so I will be reenlisting for the new model.

    1. The ATS-V was already on my short list for 2018. It’s now at the top of the list
      after putting one through its paces at a Cadillac sponsored event in San Diego last weekend. Everyone, like NA, is absolutely entitled to their opinion. However, I have to question if NA has ever driven an ATS-V. After running the car through a pedal-to-the-floor acceleration test I can’t agree that 464 HP is under powered. If I do buy the car, next year I will occasionally drive it in HPDEs on various SoCal racetracks as I do now with my current car. Let me assure everyone that a 0-60 time of, say, 3.4 vs. 3.7 makes no real difference on the track and is absolutely insignificant on the street. So, NA, I respect your right to decide against an ATS-V. The good news is that I won’t have to wait in line behind you to buy mine.

  3. Great reply Scott.
    im looking forward to thise newer model, i held off on the current one mostly due to the haptic feedback knobless design. looks like they made some changes to the entertainment console and added buttones now!!
    i think i will be in line up here in Canada lol

    I can’t believe NA ever has driven one. I have had them all the ATS-V is in my top 3 cars ever since 1967 when I first drove. Handles like a surgeon’s scalpel flies to 100 MPH with 455 lb. ft. of torque. and 464 hp. Under powered. no no don’t think so.

  5. I am ordering mine tomorrow. A Blue Coupe, 8spd, carbon, Premium, shinny wheels, Everything but Recaros. I’m old man, 72, need padding, comfort. But had CTS V (2012) was going to hop it up, but never was beat on the street OR highway. Hope I love it as much as my ’12 V
