Default More FOB

WhaTs the chance the inside silver trim piece is the same shape as the intake scoop?

Note the unique shape of the silver trim , matching side scoops?

Same as the chances that the pictured FOB is a production version to be released with the C8.

Zero.

I can’t shake the idea that, at some point, there will be a ME Caddy halo car, and that will be the $169K model. And that it will use the pictured fob. ( Which will be shared with the Vette.)

What if....Just WHAT IF...the ME test car has been a Caddy all along and the C7 is planned to continue one for a few more years? Then what? That rumored $170k price tag and being produced along side the current C7 makes more sense. Think C6 and Caddy XLR versions 2.0.

IMO, there's no "what if" to it. Cadillac needs to figure out how to sell what it's got.
The mid-engine Corvette is Nessie/Bigfoot/Roswell all rolled into one. For GM to squander THE sports car opportunity of a lifetime by doing an ME Caddy first would be as bad as the NSX launch

Funny how people are fixated on the "Zora" part...remember the Cadillac CIEN ME concept from "a few years" back? It's certainly something to consider.

Funny you bring that up:

The ME whatever you call it is going to be a stand alone model sold under a Cadillac or Chevy banner, it will not be a C8, the C8 will be the successor to the C7, not a 169k exotic. I wouldn't be surprised if GM called it the Cadillac Cien:
