High fuel prices taking their toll?
Allante doesn't really understand the audience here on this forum. Does he think he's damaging our morale? Questioning our decision to buy an XLR? He must be nuts!
Right now all the major lux brands are struggling with their high end cars.
M-B can't hardly give away the S class, BMW 7 series is a bow-wow. All these expensive cars are struggling. The hottest thing going in the industry is BMW's Mini - and its a great car. Last year, it was the PT Criuser, before that the New Beetle. This year the T-bird got cancelled.
It is a reality that $2+ fuel prices "knock out" a lot of fringe players for super luxury cars. Before someone calls me "snooty", I argue that its just a fact. Remember what happened in the '70s? A lot of people let themselves get really leveraged when it come to their ride.
We, here on this forum, already own XLRs. Decreasing production means our cars stay rare - a situation I like.
GM is committed to continuing the XLR, and it's really never going to be a big seller. And I'm OK with that.
I would like to know why Allante91 has an axe to grid with the XLR. Does he work for Ford?
PS - What is Caly's new avatar?
