Between model years 2004 and 2009, Caddy sold a handful of C5 Corvette-based power-folding drop-tops. While the formula didn’t quite work that time, the future might be clement and open to this car.

Dropping the ATS, replacing the CTS, gaining the XT4 and crucially updating the ‘Slade will leave room for a new flagship Caddy and what’s more Cadillac than a powerful 2-door convertible Cadillac?
