The Cadillac XLR was an attempt at Cadillac to sell a high-performance sports car. Based on the Corvette, the XLR was everything you’d want out of a high-performance coupe. The XLR had the same 4.4 L 443 HP V8 engine, which was more than adequate enough. But the styling was a drawback for most car shoppers, as it appeared to be more of a stretched-out CTS (via Road and Track).

Sales for the XLR were low, and there was a lack of advertising for the model. There were also many issues with the electronics in the vehicle. Cadillac has a history of failing with sport coupes, and the XLR was the latest failure. There were much better sport coupes on the market than the XLR at the time of its release.
