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
Haich Dizzle (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
Nathan Peel (Sat, 14 Sep 2013 02:45:40 -0700): that is the same model but without back doors!
Steven Limbers (Wed, 25 Sep 2013 11:02:47 -0700): The design on this car is incredible all the way down the side to the back. Have you actually seen one in person? I own a 2014IS250F-Sport Matador Red. The car is amazing, the response time is much better than it has ever been. It's more aerodynamic not to mention how aggressive it looks with the separated LEDs. The suspension that is used in the F-Sport makes it incredibly hard to even come close to challenge in handling. Not many can hold their own.
