If y'all look closely its a two door. Unless Lexus is planning a 3 door CUV like the old Rav4s I don't see this being the NX.

I think it could end up being...
1. GS coupe concept
2. RC-F concept (wasn't the normal RC previewed by LF-CC?)
3. SC concept
4. Small compact coupe based on Toyota 86/Scion FR-S

I don't think it would be the NX based on the bulging rear quarter panel. But if the NX face looked like that, I'd be all over it for a compact SUV.

Lexus is on a roll, but yeah, they need to build these things.

Agreed, looks like RC-F concept too me.

judging by how the vertical door line intersects the window sill, it looks like a cab forward design, so I bet it's some FWD model.
Front corners also looked heavily angled, and hood looks short.

Greenhouse looks a bit too tall to be a coupe, IMO. Could be anything, but it sure does look mean!

Have we ever seen Lexus having two concept cars for the same car?

The RC was previewed with the LF-CC but does it make any sense to preview the RC-F with a whole new concept?

I've been thinking that this might be just too aggressive and badass looking for the NX and it's definitely the F Sport version, not saying that crossovers do not have F Sport (RX F Sport).

Very excited to see what this looks like. I am hoping they let the engineers have some fun with thing. We need more uncompromising Lexus vehicles. They have been on a roll with the line up, now we need some hardcore models. The future at Lexus seems bright

Hah. You should know by now that Lexus almost always presents a "concept car" when the production model is literally about to roll off the factory lot.

Quite frankly, I suspect they start off with the actual production model on hand, add-on some futuristic tech bits just to jazz up the presentation, slap on 21" inch wheels and Voila! Here's your "concept".

"Concept" for Lexus is code for "preview of next year's model".

LFA was previews by 3 concepts.

I have no idea what it's gonna be. But when I look at the teaser photo it appears to be a coupe.

This is the RC-F imo!!!!!
The grill and huge front air intakes design is close to the RC-F test mule appearance.

I cant wait to see this, esp right after the M4 concept was just revealed.

Am I the only one that thinks the teaser photo shows a 2 door?
