Decisions I tell you, first wanted GS 350, then IS 350, now this is coming out, my first Lexus choice is driving me nuts.

I hope they price it competitively with the 4 series, otherwise it's doomed to fail if too high.

considering that top end IS350 is $12k cheaper than top end 335i, i doubt it will be too high.

Automotive News is saying the RC will debut at Tokyo Motor Show. Also, the RC-F will have 460hp:

This will either be part of the IS line or become the RC. Shouldn't be 70K..
I'm so happy they are finally bringing a coupe

Doubt pricing will be an issue.

I assume the RC350 will be priced between the IS350 and GS350. (45-55k)
The RC-F probably at 60-70k.
The new BMW M4 will probably hit 75-80k fully loaded.

V8 COUPE with ~ 460HP + great handling + good reliability = Priceless

There two were separated threads before someone merged them.

Looks like a BBK, slotted brakes? Also are these wheels similar or the same on the test LFA?

I'm gonna talk in list form just because.

The overall shape: NICE.

Least favorite part: the huge bulge of the rear bumper.

From some angles, particularly in this Click the image to open in full size.: mini-LFA (or giant LFA? )

Interior: Hopefully they just placed the IS interior in there temporarily and they will have the LF-CC interior details added.

Taillights: Obviously just a placeholder using the GS taillights. Why would Lexus go back to the older GS-style taillights when they have the more advanced IS taillight design?

Maybe all of those Lexus advisory board surveys where I've begged for more sports coupes and less focus on hybrids over the past few years has finally done something (though I know I'm not the only one, of course). Nah, j/k of course

But anyways, I was one of the people whining in the "when was the last time lexus did anything exciting?" thread.

This is definitely very, very exciting.
