Rumor has it that GM has decided to cease production of the XLR and XLR-V roadsters this spring. This is the latest in a series of cost-cutting measures.
The XLR has never been a great seller, though it did bring Cadillac’s new Art & Science design theme, first shown on the Evoq concept, to production form. It and it’s supercharged, V sibling both served as halos for the Cadillac brand.
We would have loved to see what a second generation XLR would have been like – though with the recent delay of the C7 Corvette on which the XLR is based, it would have been several years of potentially ever decreasing sales.
