Default 2013 Cadillac XTS

Here's the first look at the production version of the Cadillac XTS concept from NAIAS 2010.

Looks a bit smaller and sleeker than the concept. Round taillights look out of place, not production pieces?

Different proportions than the concept too...it looks RWD. Are we sure this isn't the ATS?

Definitely NOT the XTS. The proportions aren't right at all for a FWD/AWD car.

trunk is too tall, an issue that plagues all current cadillacs IMO

I caught this earlier today, and something looks incorrect here, this appears quite small, especially for what's said to be an XTS, and also looks to have RWD proportions, with a rather lengthy steering wheel-to-axle ratio. Perhaps this could be the Alpha-based ATS test-mule, and not the super-Epsilon2 XTS?

It says "KGP Photography" on the photos.

It looks RWD for certain but too large to be an ATS but who knows because it's hard to gauge the scale...the tail reminds me of the too short tail of the Chrysler 300...definitely interesting

looks more like an ATS or perhaps a CTS replacement?
