Is the XLR just another Allante?

Enclosed is a photo of a Maserati/Chrysler design that looks like a Baron with the removable top on….not the same car with this roof removed.

Ian, Even though this car came out after the Lebaron the Lebaron was designed after this car. Because the launch was held up by over a year with poor quality they used this car to design the Lebaron. My car was really nice. It basically sat in the garage for 20 years. I finally told my wife to start driving it. It had a fantastic leather interior including the dash.

Correct….. the interior was nicer, the TC was produce late in 1988 and stop the production 1n 1990, the over stock was sold as a 1991 Chrysler TC Le Baron, about 7300 were sold.

The Allante were produce from 1987 until 1993 with 21400 sold, with an average of 3000 units per year….. better than the XLR, no wonder why GM stop its production.

Would they learn from their errors designs by ''others'' for the next Cadillac roadster…….guest, ( only the shares holders count).:dunno:

Thanks.

IAN:thumbsup
