To my eye, the entire car looks a bit smaller than the IS, making me think maybe "RC" instead (?)...

Great find! Looks like the RC-F finally coming to life I really hope that it pumps out enough power to compete with the upcoming BMW M4...

Looks like RC-F, probably not an ISF.

The Wheel base looks longer than IS and the tail lights is from GS. Looks like a GS coupe to me...

Hmm. Maybe if I put off my new car purchase for a year and wait for the GS-based RC coupe...

if you look close at one of the pics of the rc-f in the garage you can see a gs with stacked quad tips. Say hello to the gs-f

Looks good to me, although I don't like when they make the grille so aggressively pinched.

it is certainly IS-based RC-F.... you can see it by looking at big pics of interior - it is the same.

What I find interesting is that hood vent:

It's odd that they would release an F variant of either the IS or GS without launching a base coupe ahead of time, no? Based on the fenders and exhaust, I agree with the previous posters that this may very well be the rumored RC-F

As much as I dislike 4-seat coupes and the spindle grill, I can't shake the feeling that this thing could look fantastic.

Agreed. It looks identical, from the gauge cluster housing, to the NAV screen and the silver trim that goes across the dash, to the console design, remote touch, shifter...

So far:

Interior: 99.9% same dash as the IS
Engine: we can expect the IS/GS 3.5L V6 hopefully with more than 306 hp (RC 350 was trademarked as well as RC F a few months back). As for the "F" engine, who knows between turbocharged V6 or upgraded 5.0L V8.
Exterior front: Looks like it is its own
Exterior rear: GS-based tail lamps (but could be part of the camouflage...)

Yeah this could also be the new GS based F coupe too. Tailights are from the GS, headlights are more similar to GS than 3rd IS. Wheelbase and width of the car also seemed to be larger than the IS. Those are some massive rear fender flares. I love it!!
