LOS ANGELES -- Cadillac has no plans for a V-series high-performance model of its new CT6 large sedan, brand boss Johan de Nysschen said.
The CT6, which arrives in dealerships in March, “was not conceived with a V-series model in mind,” de Nysschen said during an interview at a media test drive of the car last week.
