Lexus sends the owners a DVD of the event every year, so as their media contractor works through post-production, I'd expect Lexus to continue to release teasers or even a full video.

No. They didn't even do one last year, and I wouldn't expect any more either. As I mentioned recently in a post in a thread in the Car Chat forum (Chris Harris:What The F Is A Lexus Performance Car?), the chatter within Lexus corporate on the LFA has gone to pretty much zero. It's a stark contrast to the first few years I had the car, when there was plentiful outreach, community development, internal programs, and marketing research.

Of course, all the owner events that Lexus did put together far exceeded the expectations that any owner could have had. I consider myself very lucky to have been involved; I just think it's sad that Lexus hasn't pushed forward with efforts to build the LFA community.

The owners in the US are heavily weighted toward folks that own dealerships.

Not much community for Lexus to build from them.

I also fear that many of the private cars are being kept to be someday auction trophies to follow the now beloved 2000GT. They are car guys/collectors but not actively enjoying seat time in the cars.

Things should liven up from Lexus marketing once the LC is ready, particularly for the LC-F.

Do you think it's because they don't think there's ever going to be that much of a Demand for them! At least some of the guys i know that spend that kind of money on a Super Car, the LFA has Never even been in the Discussion! jmo!
