Default New Lexus LF-C2 Convertible Debuts at LA Auto Show

The LA Auto Show has announced that twenty-five production & concept vehicles will have their world debut at this year’s show in November, and will include a new model from Lexus.

Here’s a press release quote with all the details so far:

This year’s debuts will deliver production and concept vehicles representing the ever-growing luxury, performance, low and zero emission categories. The debuts range from flagship SUVs and ultra luxury sedans to new compact entries and zero-emission production and prototype debuts.

Among the 25 global premieres scheduled for Los Angeles this year will be models by Acura, Audi, BMW, Chrysler, General Motors, Hyundai, Lexus, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Scion, Toyota, Volvo and Volkswagen.
A November debut comes at a strange time for Lexus — the RC/RC F and NX will just be arriving at dealerships, so something like an RX or GS F concept might be confusing to potential buyers.

My first guess? A concept for the next-generation LS. Outside of a brand-new model altogether, the LS is far enough away from the NX & RC that it won’t cause second guessing among consumers — it would almost fit with the “ultra luxury sedans” mentioned in the press release, and would also explain why senior Lexus executives are unconcerned with the declining sales of the current LS model.

Interesting, the LS seems too far away by most guesses to warrant a concept so soon, not to mention every LS before it was introduced first at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, never in LA.

Could it be the new Toyota/BMW sports car concept?

Wouldn't be surprised if it was the CT sedan. There's been rumors of one for some time.....even though Lexus has already tried one small hybrid sedan (HS) that wasn't successful.

RX Concept, I would assume. "LF-RX" or something?

Lexus has been touting their concepts for a while on the show circuit, so the debut of an RX concept would give them ~8 months to show it before they showed a production vehicle, and then made it available in late 2015.

Probably replacement for the aging RX. It's the best selling Lexus after all.

GS refresh, I hope! The LS needs to be last. Even after the new RX.

I'm so curious as what new model Lexus will bring to the LA Auto show? Maybe the GS F, 3SC or TX? Can't wait to attend the LA Auto show in November...

That would be awesome if all three came at once

A new RX/TX, CT (or sedan concept), GS-F, BMW/Toyota car (Lexus roadster) are all very good guesses.

GS refresh is the most likely based on this timing.
