The experiment may have failed in Cadillac's eyes, but it was a hit with most of the owners who love and drive the cars. You don't see Cadillac flying the bodies of the XLR across the Atlantic like they did with the Allante. I sure hope that Cadillac has their Sh*t together now!

I believe the '93s are the most trouble-free and least expensive to own and operate. Whomever owned mine before me really took care of it well as it has been virtually trouble free for me, plus EVERYTHING works as designed.
In my case I think its was a bargain being able to buy a 10 year old $65,000 car for a price in the teens and have it perform and operate as well as it was orginally designed to operate.
I couldn't be happier with the '93 Allante; especially when you consider its sophistication, luxury, quality of construction, eye appeal, and performance to any new car that sells in the high teens today.
