    What's it going to look like? Think Cadillac Cien...

    That is all... For now...

    edit: Either C7 platform or Omega...

    It'll be a C7 based roadster competing with the Audi R8, Mercedes SLS, and Ferrari California...

    What? That doesn't even make sense.


    The California is a four-seater GT convertible. The XLR is not.
    The SLS AMG is $200k.
    The R8, I could maybe see, but it's mid-engine, the C7 will not be, so therefore neither will the XLR.

    There is some consideration of placing the next XLR on the Omega platform - which will spawn two sedans and a coupe.

    Re: 2016 Cadillac XLR

    That would make it too heavy to compete with any of those cars then. XLR on Omega = Ciel.

    No. The second generation XLR is "in the plans" but that's all for now. They usually don't confirm anything until it's just about ready to go public. Even the flagship isn't truly "confirmed" yet. Just the "plans" are confirmed...

    So I assume it'll carry another 6 digit price tag? Here's to hoping it revolutionizes every aspect of the orginal.

    if it's on a C7 platform, I would expect C7 powertrains-- maybe with some tweaks or GM performance parts to make it special from the vette's. What they don't need to do, is go off and create their own engine specificly for the XLR.
