Default Looks like the RCF Will Arrive

I received a call from a trusted resource at Lexus. The word is the RCF will be going forward to production. I do not yet have the date. My guess is 2015.

I say bring it on Lexus and don't spare the horses.

JoeZ, Let us know if you here anything as well.

I heard it will have a turbo ball bearing electric supercharged 800whp and 710wtq at 12,000 rpm with super AWD that moves all 4 wheels in the direction you're going powered by a v14 aluminum block and weighs 2,100lbs dry in a fully carbon fiber/extraterrestrial metal based material body.

Goes into production 2032.

You heard it here first.

So trust me, my secret sources are from higher ups in Lexus.

Dont know anything about the RCF for sure but for now we have this god awful thing...

http://www.roadandtrack.com/caught-t...014-lexus-is-f

they made it a coupe, looks like a hard top convertible too? In any case, not a fan of rear lights at all, looks really euro cheap...

It's called the IS-C. Welcome to 2008.

Just about everyone agrees that the IS-C is a painfully obvious afterthought with a styling that looks horribly out of proportions especially when the roof is closed. I'd bet that the next-gen IS-C (likely renamed to the RC something convertible) will look a lot better as Lexus should learn the lesson and design the new coupe with its convertible variant in mind by now.

Interesting, is the main competitor the M4? The specs of the M4 were just released and it looks like they returned to the I6. It has a FAT power band that makes it excellent for track duties. So, I hope the RCF will be a good competition for it.

I was also told today the we might not see the V8 for sale until next year...it's another "what I heard" so we'll see.

Supposedly, the RCFs with the smaller engine will precede the V8.
