We’ve written a few stories related to the upcoming mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette so it would seem that it could serve as the basis for the XLR II. The what? Between model years 2004 and 2009, Caddy sold a handful of C5 Corvette-based power-folding drop-tops. While the formula didn’t quite work that time, the future might be clement and open to this car.

Cadillac is once more trying to find its footing in the luxury-car world and things are not going very well.

Dropping the ATS, replacing the CTS, gaining the XT4 and crucially updating the ‘Slade will leave room for a new flagship Caddy and what’s more Cadillac than a powerful 2-door convertible Cadillac?
