Tamarack is taking orders for the Atlas modification and plans to certify it on CJ models through the CJ3 in about a year. The CJ mod adds less than 50 pounds to the airframe and about two feet to each wing, but the more efficient wing allows carriage of one additional passenger with full fuel.

From Tamarack TAG;

To answer your question, the CJ4 is on our radar. We are concentrating on the CE525, 525A & 525B for the time being, but the CE525C would be a next logical step.

For clarification, we are not going for any performance increases initially.

So no MTOW increase. We are getting a MZFW increase, and as our press release stated (see attached), we flew our CE525 S/N 00012, about 200 miles further than a CJ2 would go (50% further than book for a straight CJ) with a block fuel burn at 479 lb/hr!
