2015 Lexus IS Coupe Rendered

Since the beginning of the IS line in 2000, enthusiasts have coveted BMW's 3 Series Coupe for ages. Even Mercedes Benz and Audi have followed suit with a coupe variant of their luxury compact sport sedans. Top Speed has recently rendered a version of what a 2015 IS based coupe could look like.

Since the new IS sport sedan is entering its third generation, enthusiasts have been awaiting a real good looking, fun to drive sport coupe. Because the SC 430 was on it's way out, Lexus needed to fill in a quick void to cover their convertible offering. Instead of offering a 2nd generation IS coupe, they went ahead and offered the IS Convertible instead. We still haven't understood why Lexus skipped a two door hard top from the start but we hope things will change with likes of the LF-LC and LF-CC coupe concepts.

We know it's only a matter of time when Lexus will finally release a true two door Lexus coupĂ© to satisfy our needs. We hope this future IS coupe will offer a fuel efficient entry variant, a mid range version and a top line F version. A hybrid version wouldn't hurt either. 

So far TMC has trademarked "RC F" and "RC 350" for a possible future Lexus model. We've envisioned what a power house F coupe could look like. Let's hope Lexus can follow through and have a real answer for Europe's finest. 

Could this IS Coupe rendering be glimpse at the future? Would you consider it over the sedan? Chat with us in our forums! >>

Eric Pelezo (Wed, 19 Jun 2013 16:30:50 -0700): Sold
H-Dizzle Jones (Wed, 19 Jun 2013 16:51:21 -0700): Can't wait to buy
Caroline Nguyen (Wed, 19 Jun 2013 17:17:07 -0700): UGLY & UNBALANCED. There's no balance in Lexus design. It's like they spent 80% of their design budget on the front nose thing and 20% on the rest of the body.
Koichi C. Sanchez-Imahashi (Wed, 19 Jun 2013 18:24:02 -0700): yea the nose only works on the LS imho. I just hope they don't go all Acura and lose their minds

John Su (Wed, 19 Jun 2013 21:24:37 -0700): i think what they are doing is taking their design team from scion and just moving them over. that new IS looks a lot like the FR-S. http://www.scion.com/cars/FR-S/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scion_FR-S
Caroline Nguyen (Wed, 19 Jun 2013 23:18:55 -0700): Well, my next car might be a Lexus but it won't be for their design. It's totally f*cking ugly in my opinion.
Caroline Nguyen (Thu, 20 Jun 2013 08:11:28 -0700): this is well balanced design https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/998598_4363753032503_1137024038_n.jpg http://www.bmw-i.com/mediadata/img/302011/r850x460/BMWi_i8_Gallery_Exterior_02-1.jpg
