Electra is for Buick. My guess is for a version of the Volt/ELR instead of a LTS based sedan.
Cil... no idea.
The Cadillac Catera was an Omega platform (from Opel). Holden then took the platform, widened it and made 2 different (longer) wheelbases, and it became their V-platform. The replacement to that platform was the Zeta, developed by Holden. Now, Cadillac's upcoming flagship car will be essentially a reworked Zeta, and will be named....for Cadillac's flagship.... Omega.
Kind of a full circle, isn't it??
Don't whine... Deal with it!!!

"...what the Thunderbird SC does best: look great and go fast. Very very fast....responds as if it had a 747 engine on it's roof
"Better still is this big bruiser's balence...nose and tail bite as one.
"...the big paradox in the SC's character. It's better at going haywire fast than driving slow."
