I’ve been attending the NAIAS for many, many years now, and one trend I’ve recently noticed is the tendency for concept vehicles to be considerably less outrageous in design than in years gone by. At one time concepts were a look into the far-off future of the automobile, but these days it seems they’re designed with the possibility of being put into production in only a couple of years. I think the trend started with VW’s ‘Beetle’ concept a few years back, which we all know went into production a few years later. But it’s since continued with cars like the PT Cruiser and more recently the Dodge Challenger and the Chevrolet Camaro. And for the record, you’ll hear no complaints from me.
According to Inside Line as reported by Autoblog, it looks like the Cadillac CTS Coupe concept, which was introduced at this years NAIAS will actually go into production in mid-2009 as a 2010 model. There will be some slight changes made to the concept to make it production-friendly, but the final design should closely mirror the concept rolled out this year.
