Next Camaro and Cadillac CTS to Move to Alpha Platform…CTS Coupe and Wagon Dead

GM’s upcoming rear-wheel-drive model plans were recently unveiled to the Automotive Press Association Thursday afternoon, which outlines GM’s plans to move to more common, global platforms. GM most likely preferred that these plans were not made public, but too late…

The next Camaro, due out in 2014, is going to switch to the global Alpha platform that GM is developing for the new BMW 3 Series fighter, codenamed Cadillac ATS.
