Looks like they're shooting a commercial? And also, you can see the bottom of the standard CT grille in the covered car here:

Pretty sure the current CT200h F-Sport already comes with foglights even in the US.

Well CT was the first car to have spindle shape inspired grill so no wonder spindle looks good on it.

Looks a lot nice with the grill,pano and even the wheels.
Still needs to get to at least around 8.5 second 0-60 for me.

Well the current one still gets badged as an F-Sport AND has foglights nonetheless.

Looking good! They do need a more powerful variant imo. Hopefully some powertrain derived from the ES or Camry hybrid models.

CT 300h and NX 300h might be too direct of competitors? Maybe not?

don't think so - nx300h likely to be much taller/roomier? (hatch vs. cuv)

That doesn't make any sense, the 2.0T will have somewhere in the neighborhood of 240hp, and the 3.5L puts out 268-70hp (can't use the DI version because its only for RWD layouts). Not to mention I doubt the engine bay could hold a V6

How does it not make any sense? 200h base engine. 2.0T mid level. And a (close to ) 300hp "F" variant.

That sounds great to me

Sure, feasibility wise, we dont know... But I'd love to see Lexus expand their engine options. 1 engine choice is bad for a luxury car.

Because you said V6 which would have 28-30 more hp than a 240hp Turbo 4. That does not make sense for a F.
