Would likely be based on their flagship sedan

General Motor’s vice president of global design has revealed the company hasn’t decided on whether or not to build the Elmira concept.

Speaking at last week’s WardsAuto Interiors Conference, Ed Welburn said the concept has been well received and that’s a “good sign.”  However, he declined to confirm if the model was approved for production.

While Welburn was tight lipped, Cadillac’s senior vice president, Bob Ferguson, has previously said the Elmiraj is “very doable” and “dealers really want a vehicle like this.” The executive also noted the concept was marketable and “practical enough to be put through the production process.”

As a refresher, the Elmiraj concept is a luxury coupe that was designed to explore the “top of Cadillac’s range.” It features a stylish exterior, an elegant cabin and a twin-turbo 4.5-liter V8 engine with approximately 500 bhp (373 kW) and 500 lb-ft (678 Nm) of torque.
