GM Says No to Corvette-based Cadillac
Speaking to Fox News, Jeuchter said “there’s no intent to offer any other nameplate, aside from the Corvette”, adding that “this is a corvette, it’s optimized for the Corvette market”.
The Cadillac XLR, a luxury roadster that was offered from 2004 through 2009, was based on the fifth-generation Chevrolet Corvette (1997-2004). The convertible was sold with either a 4.6-liter V8 or a supercharged 4.4-liter V8, both also available on the Cadillac STS. The beefed-up XLR-V version was one of GM’s most expensive vehicles in 2008, with a starting price set at a little over $100,000.
Rumors that the company could introduce XLR successor surfaced last year, but General Motors has yet to confirm such plans.
