Car Connection is reporting that GM will put the LS6 engine from the Corvette Z06 into the CTS. The 400 hp 5.7L V8 will be mated to a six speed manual; the car will be called CTSi. GM is unabashed about saying the M5 is their performance bogey.

Too bad the styling won't change...

Not even close!!

Saw my first CTS today...... Shall we say my first impression was AZTEC Part II..... I don't believe BMW has anything to worry about
I concur. The CTS looks absolutely horrible!!! The first time I saw the bizzare back and the flat sides for real, I couldn't eat the rest of the day.
Well, the CTS was one of the cars I was considering. The styling is unique. I really didn't mind it.
I hope they do something about the interior. As it stands now, the CTS's interior looks very cheap. Even the doors feel light. Ugh.
