I fell in love with the new Cadillac style when the first CTS hit the show rooms. My only problem with the CTS was the near $40K price tag of the optioned models on the lot. Two years later I bought a brand new almost base 2004 in March 2005 for $23K ($10K off the MSRP). It was a combo of being one of the few people on the planet who prefers a manual transmission and a desperate car manufacturer and dealer trying to get rid of last years inventory. About 10 years later I did this again getting a $44K MSRP volt for about $22K once all the rebates and tax credits hit. When the volt first came out I thought it was overpriced. The $5K price cut for 2014 has really helped.
I have my eyes on a new ELR, but I will definitely wait until March 2015 to see if there are any deals to be had on 2014 models. Absolutely love the looks just wish I was filthy rich enough to afford one. From a looks standpoint, my humble opinion is that the ELR is much better looking than a tesla.
I would love to see a Caddy make a 4 door ELR similar to the ATS or CTS as well as a crossover ELR like an SRX.
