Default SC430 dodges a bullet....will be back for 2010

Just got my new issue of Motor Trend.

MT is reporting that SC430 will be back with minor enhancement such as puddle lamps, blue tooth, ipod connect ect.

Looks like another year for the SC

No way.

I wonder who will buy it, considering that the IS350C trumps it in every way (except the very subjective opinion on looks)?

The IS350C has better power, gas efficiency, handling and performance, cargo room, passenger room, technology, amenities, and a spare tire; all the while being $20k less.

Dear Lexus,

While we like the current gen SC430, you can only refresh a design so much. We would like you to consider a redesign so (among other things) it can stay up-market of the IS-C.

Thank you.

Loaded vs. loaded, it's only US$12k less.
For me, I would get neither, I will just keep my current one ...

Seems about 100 people a month still buy it here. The car is at the end of its life cycle thus no big updates.

The funny thing is used they will be more revered b/c of these small updates.

it feels like the current SC is dying and they're waiting for it to completely die..

A trip through Palm Springs will reveal where those 100 per month sales go. This car needs to die and come back as something worthy of the G37. They did it with the first SC, they can do it again.

it's not like they're wasting any money on the updates.

just leave it on the shelf for another 10 years.... no R&D money involved.
