Could Lexus squeeze a 2.4L set up in that engine bay?
Two words: Blade Master.
I'm sure they can, but it's only a matter of whether they see enough demand in the market to justify doing it.
I bet they're losing money on the LS600hL and the GS450h with the current sales volumes, but these can be justified by being the halo cars of luxury hybrid and performance hybrid, respectively. A CT300h (again, hopefully with a 2.5L and not 2.4L) on the other hand will actually have to make money to be justified.
