Cadillac XLR cancelled

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.

    I’ve had the XLR’s since 2004, new one 2005. mine was great until the arranty ran out and the day it ran out mine top screwed up.. has now been in the shop six weeks with no completion date. has 31,000 miles on and always been under cover. that is way for 80,000 buck car to be.
