First one could debut in 2014

We've heard conflicting reports about Cadillac's flagship, but there could be a legitimate reason behind the confusion: the company is working on several different models.

The Detroit Bureau is reporting Cadillac won't go "product-for-product" with their German rivals, but rather offer a variety of flagships that target both "foundational" and "aspirational" niches. As an unidentified source put it, "One car can't do it anymore."

The multi-pronged approach could spread the development costs of the Omega platform that will underpin the brand's competitor to the Audi A8, BMW 7-Series and Mercedes S-Class. There's no word on what other flagships the brand is considering, but a Ciel-like convertible is a strong possibility.

Interestingly, the report indicates the Glamour concept will be shown at next year's Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance despite recent teaser images.

Just make up your mind Caddy before your 'Flagship Concepts' become obsolete! Great Sixteen, Glamour and Ciel Concepts, but just MAKE ONE TO SELL damn it!

Well, i hope they come up with the cadillac sixteen which would be a great flagship. Currently, the atx looks to attract more customers with its appeal than the xts.

This article itritates me. Cadillac is becoming the Fisker, Tesla of the American Automakers. How many years did we hear about the Converj, ie now the ELR yet to be produced. The Ciel is an amazing car if produced just like it is , yet thats not one of GM traits. I am hopeful for cadillac but articles like this is just more putting the cart before the horse. now bash me.
