Cadillac Cien XLR ReplacementNormally I am pretty anti GM.  But a few years ago Cadillac had this concept car.  It was rumored to be the replacement for the XLR.  If GM has the intent of actually bringing this car into production, then by all means keep them in business.

Chevy Volt Charging Math doesn't add up

Oct 2, 2008 by Paul White

When something sounds too good to be true it usually is.  The Chevy Volt has been getting lots of hype.  GM's press department has been careful about what figures to release.  Knowing that any numerical figures would be scrutinized by engineers and techies.  Well I worked some numbers and have come to the conclusion that the Chevy Volt is not what it seems.

Cadillac has Lamborghini Design Skills

Jan 21, 2008 by Paul White

XLR cadillac concept
Found this picture browsing the internet. It looks more like a Lamborghini than a cadillac. Shows they have some very talented designers over at GM. Why this thing isn't making it to market I have no idea. Rumor says it is to be the replacement for the XLR. If the stats are correct, this will compete against the Ferrari, and Lamborghinis, but of course still won't touch the Venom.  It would be good if gm was to bring this into production.  The current XLR is a joke,  as its nothing more than a corvette with different body panels.
