2021 Cadillac XLR Successor

The Cadillac XLR was a high-performance, luxury roadster built from 2004 to 2009 on the same platform as the Chevrolet Corvette C6. The nameplate could return when GM introduces the mid-engined, C8-generation Corvette.
Although there’s no official confirmation from Cadillac, leaked photos of a key fob suggest that the luxury brand will soon unveil a mid-engined sports car with a retractable roof. More specifically, the drawings on the fob look like the upcoming mid-engined Corvette, but also show a convertible roof. The C8-generation Corvette will break cover in 2019, so the Cadillac might follow sometime in 2020, for the 2021 model year. That’s a long wait, so here’s a rendering of the luxury roadster and everything we already know about it.

  1. As a former owner of 2 XLRs…which were the best cars I've owned for many reasons (maybe tied with my C7) — I will not consider another XLR and I very strongly discourage anyone from owning one (2004-2009, and 2021-?), unless you plan to sell the 2021 model in 2021 or 2022. GM/Cadillac really screwed all XLR owners when, shortly after they discontinued the XLR, they stopped making parts for it. I continue to be amazed at the prices dealers are asking for these cars because they are expensive paperweights with an outdated NAV. You might be able to find some parts from junkyards, but how long will a used headlight assembly last? When they were available, they were over $1000 but they became unavailable several years ago. That's just one example, by the way. So, since GM/Cadillac f'd all of the XLR owners before, you have to be insane to think they won't do it again.
