A Convertible Mid-Engined Cadillac In Our Future?

This seems like a long-shot but then again, in today’s automotive world, anything is possible. There are pictures of a Cadillac key-fob circulating on the interwebs that seem to indicate that the return of a 2-door convertible Cadillac might happen.

The tell-tale buttons on the controller are as follows: One depicts a roof retracting and the other, which kind of makes it seem like a possibility, is a front-trunk release button. We all know that means, right?

We’ve written a few stories related to the upcoming mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette so it would seem that it could serve as the basis for the XLR II. The what? 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.

Cadillac is once more trying to find its footing in the luxury-car world and things are not going very well. Heck, even the irreplaceable Escalade is, well, being replaced by the new Lincoln Navigator. 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?

This is pure speculation based on a few pictures of a key-fob so we might very well be way out to lunch. Or not…
