Default Next Generation IS F with 450+ HP?

Click the image to open in full size.

Best Car Magazine reports the next IS F will have a 450+ HP V8 and be available in a sedan, coupe and convertible. Obviously the rendering looks a little awkward but the stats look promising. Fingers are crossed that this will be a true M3 fighter.

2014/2015? Lexus IS F

Overall Length: 4680mm (184.3")
Width: 1820mm (71.7")
Height: 1400mm (55.1")
Engine: V8 DOHC
Displacement: 4968cc
Power: 475ps (469hp) @ 7000rpm
Economy: 10.0km/l (23.5mpg)

More on that GS F to come...

I'd love to see the IS-F in coupe form. I've always thought the IS should have been a coupe and an IS-F coupe would only be better! Hopefully that translates into a 3IS Coupe as well (besides the IS-C). I'm hoping too that this next IS-F will be a true M3 fighter/killer tho.

.....I wanna see more on the GS-F too

Now that is more like it, that be an actual shock though if Lexus brought out a coupe, sedan and convertible of the IS F.

I guess the convertible will be identical to the coupe in terms of looks, not like what we have now.

470hp at 7,000RPM? 23.5mpg?

That would be awesome!

Sounds hopeful! I like seeing the performance improvements and the addition of coupe form.

Good luck on the convertible, I would be happy with just a sedan and a coupe

if anything, the good sign is that means the gsf would be more power, in the 500 range

Sound promising. With 460hp, and still return 23.5mpg? If the suspension and chassis rigidity improved, this will be the real M3 fighter.

So, Lexus is sticking with the V8 ? And the next M3 is going to use a 6 cylinder engine.....
