It's not only land yachts that have lost ground to the crossover and SUV frenzy these past few years, but traditional sedans, too, alongside other body styles that don't have many inches between their bellies and the road.
Fortunately, numerous companies remain committed to low-slung models, including several American ones. Cadillac's name is written on the list, and the GM-owned premium car brand has the CT4 and CT5 in its portfolio, as well as the V and Blackwing versions.

And if you forgot, the Celestiq, a real luxury land yacht with electric power, joins them. At a starting price of around $340,000, it targets one-percenters, and let's not forget Neiman Marcus' one-off copy listed for nearly $1 million.

Most American car enthusiasts would tell you that they miss a certain model from Cadillac's past, and in certain cases, it is none other than the Eldorado. A vehicle that needs no presentation, it dates back to the early '50s, when the first generation came out. Until 1960, the automaker made no fewer than four generations. The ninth generation came out in the 70s, and in the early 2000s, Cadillac pulled the plug on this model altogether.

Its successor was the CTS, an executive model that lived for three generations between 2002 and 2019, and when the car manufacturer dropped this one, too, some believed it was time for Cadillac to dust off the Eldorado nameplate and bring it back from the dead. A modern-day Eldorado would feature a new design, construction, powertrain, technology, and safety features and would likely be a battery-electric vehicle.

Well, at least in theory, because in practice, it is clear by now that Caddy has no intention of resurrecting it. Not yet, anyway, and that's despite the occasional rumor that speaks about it. And it was such rumors that gave birth to several unofficial digital illustrations over the last few years, which makes me imagine what a potentially brand-new Cadillac Eldorado might look like. The latest we came across was signed by vrburlapp and shared on social media, and it's a bold project.

Certain lines and that large OEM logo adorning the trunk lid make it instantly recognizable as a Cadillac. This CGI model looks like a modern-day Art Deco car. It has generous proportions, a roomy and spacious cockpit (for an open-top ride), a foldable roof that is stored behind the seats in a special compartment, a black finish, several chrome touches, and large alloys with a chrome look, and a concave profile, among others.

We would certainly support such a machine, especially since it would be a breath of fresh air in today's car world, regardless of whether it stays true to the V8 or launches with electron-sipping power. But would you buy it over a similarly-sized crossover?
