They also have a pic on the lexus website for "future vehicles" :D

Wow, they really are going to do it! The funny thing is this will be more luxurious, heavier yet offer similar/better MPG than the CR-Zzzzz with better performance.

Lexus seems to like 10 spokes....

I was hoping the tail lights wouldn't stray too much from the concept. :sad:

That said the route they went still looks pretty good.

Looks good. The taillights look like a mix between the IS-C's and the RX. I'm glad it doesn't look too much like a baby RX.

My hope is still in a Coupe Version in the near future :D

Upon further reflection the back looks almost exactly like the RX. Could be good could be bad. I'm not sure if gen Yers are gonna want to drive a car that look's like their parent's.

But I do like the short front overhang.

Again, wondering why it's so difficult to not stray from the concept version. The rear has been certifiably bored up.

Like how the $35k HS250h outsells the $20k Insight, the LF-Ch should outsell the CR-Z...

Pretty damn pathetic.:D

I am HOPING this gets the newer I-4 and not the older one like the HS uses. Either way surely F-sport parts will come.:woot:

If this car gets a hybrid version of the 2.5L it gets my money when it's time to replace the IS. RX rear or not :p

Rumor has it that this car might even get an optional V6 hybrid setup similar to the RX.

So are they going to start naming every LF from now on or what.

Allen K 01-19-10 11:03 AM

Most (all?) of the Lexus concepts are designated with LF-something. They just change the name when the car is officially sold.

Concepts are called LF because it stands for Lexus Future. ;)

The LFA got away with keeping the name. The LFA used to be called Lexus Future Apex. Now, it stands for Lexus Fuji Apex.

From what I'm seeing, it looks better. The first Mazda3 set the standard for how ~$25K (equipped) cars in this segment should look, and this looks like an evolution of that approach. It's looking relatively clean and classy, but sufficiently chiseled, substantial, and sporty.

I did not like the concept's looks at all, but love the "concept" (idea) itself. I had doubt as to whether or not Toyota could execute because they have violated my trust and expectations in a major way in recent years, but this looks promising...
