Yup! I saw an XLR the other day it even has the C5 4 center exaust ports. A dead give away.

Since they're technically coming off of two separate lines, isn't it still possible that the wheelbases of the two cars will be different? Just curious. I'm anxiously awaiting (like the majority of us) a peek at the C6.

No, The reason the Cadillac is even being made at Bowling Green is because they share the exact same frame. 105.7 will be C6s wheelbase.

Cool. What did you think of my speculatins that I put in the c6 forum regarding other conclusions we could draw from the XLR?

There is an ever so slight possibility that the hydroformed process could be different for the C6 vs. the XLR but I tend to agree..they are the same wheelbase dimension..

At least it does have center exhaust ports but would not say that they are the C5 exhaust ports.

Could be the XLR is using C5 stuff while the C6 is next generation stuff.

Nope, the fact is the XLR IS using C6 stuff, problem is, its very much like C5 stuff. Don't expect C6 to be to different from C5 in underpinnings.
