From Supercars as well:

The Cadillac Evoq, which debuted in 1999 at the Detroit Auto
Show as the "Art and Science" design direction for the luxury automaker, will become reality as the Cadillac "XLR". Based on the award-winning Evoq concept car, XLR will feature the first application of a higher output 4.6-liter Northstar engine in a rear-wheel-drive configuration. This new Cadillac was developed on the next generation of GM's performance car architecture, designed specifically for convertibles.

"GM's recently patented performance car body structure is ideal for open air two-seaters," said David Hill, performance cars vehicle line executive. "With advanced steel hydroformed side rails and an aluminum cockpit structure, the XLR will be class leading in structural efficiency, ride quality and agility.

The 2003 Cadillac XLR will be produced on a dedicated assembly line at General Motors' Bowling Green Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky. XLR will be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show as part of GM's Concept to Reality presentation. XLR will share the stage with the Cadillac Cien supercar concept vehicle.
