  • Cadillac’s disappointing stab at electrified luxury transportation might fizzle out and die after a brief stint on the market. In roughly four months, Chevrolet is expected to reveal the next-generation Volt slated to go on sale for the 2016 model year.

However, even winning racers eventually have to retire, and it looks like the CTS may be taking a bow at the end of the season. In its place, Caddy is reportedly working on a new racecar based on the ATS Coupe, and it might even get to compete internationally. According to Racer, Pratt & Miller Engineering is...
