It doesn't matter if Welburn was on vacation or not.Was Welburn on vacation?
I don't see how these changes forward the XLR. In light of that, they should have left it alone until the next generation [400-hp for the base model] was ready [with better interior design].
The new CTS does look great. I've seen many around Washington DC, in fact I've seen more CTSs than Malibus.Sadly, I wonder if anything has been done to the interior...where it REALLY needed some love...
On another note, saw a new CTS on the road this morning (only second one I have seen outside of a carshow yet!) and it was absolutely stunning!
