Today, we at Club Lexus are saddened to hear about the passing of Eiji Toyoda, a visionary and leader in the automotive industry we know today. Mr. Toyoda is the father of Lexus brand.

With his vision of a premium luxury car brand in the Toyota organization, Lexus has become one of the most admired luxury brands to date. We thank Mr. Toyoda for his passionate pursuit of perfection and the road he has paved for the future. At this time, we would like to send our condolences to the Toyoda family and celebrate the accomplishments Mr. Toyoda has created on his century long journey.

WOW! Mr. Toyoda lived 100 years and was involved in the creation of artwork on wheels. Let's celebrate! That was one accomplished life!

Think of everything that he witnessed in 100 years, and all of the lives that he influenced directly and indirectly with his passion. We would be blessed to be 1/2 as fortunate.

RIP

Not only was he the driving force behind Lexus, he pretty much made Toyota who they are today. It was this guy's obsession with engineering and kaizen that led to the Toyota Production System and how Toyota operates its plants and its quality control standards. RIP and thank you for your contributions to the auto industry and to the cars that millions of us enjoy.
