Default 2015 Lexus RC/IS coupe ?

What is the general consensus as to when the new IS coupe or RC, as they may call it, will be released? I was thinking about getting the new IS, but wasn't quite sold on it. I tend to lean toward coupes anyway so when I saw the spy shots of the new 2 door version, and the rendering in that Japanese magazine, I was very excited. Is it expected to be available a year from now as a 2015 model or later as a 2015/16 model? Thanks guys.

Rumors are for an official reveal of the RC at next year's Detroit Auto Show.

Thanks guys. "A few more months away"... I hope you are right. That would be awesome. Hopefully it is priced similarly to the sedan version.

More info here too http://www.clublexus.com/articles/is...8-rc-f-yay.php

Looks like 12-15 months from now it will be available for purchase. Likely to get a 2.0t 4cy, a 3.5 V6, and an updated F engine with 460hp.

Being that its an all new model (RC and not IS or GS) I bet it will be priced slightly higher than an IS sedan (kind of like BMW does with their coupes).

...(BTW, there are about 15 total threads on this between the IS, GS, ISF, Future Cars, and General Chat sections)

Sounds nice in this YouTube clip of the RC testing.

Cr*p! I knew I should of waited. I didn't like the way the 3rd gen IS sedan looked so I ordered an Audi A5 s line competition package coupe with the 6 spd manual.

It looks good so far. Can't wait to see the final product.

that image is too soft for RC... it will likely be very similar but sharper lines
