It's such a beauty and a rarity in the world of PRHTs. Did sales just completely fizzle? Maybe the niche was wrong, or the car overpriced? Were there mechanical problems that made it go away?

True pity, it's such a beautiful car.

What is a 'PHRT' ?

None of the above.
The XLR was conceived/designed/built/intended as a 'limited production" vehicle.
A "unique" Cadillac of the period.

Then that makes it even better for people who were lucky enough to have the money to buy one when they came out. I've looked at Autotrader and there are only 3 available in Canada, the prices ranging from $35 to $59K, depending on model year.
