XCar Gives Us a Brief History of Lexus
"How did Lexus come to be?"
It's a tale as old as... 1989, actually. Since then, Lexus has been a fixture in the luxury landscape. That was a big thing for Japanese automotive manufacturers. Nissan, Toyota's contemporaries, attempted a similar jump into the US at about the same time with the Infiniti, but they've yet to succeed at the level that Lexus has. Acura gets credit for being the first. When it comes to being the best though? That's Lexus. No question.
