Finally, the new "touch" remote touch! But wouldn't it be easier if it was just a touch screen like before? Can't wait to see this car in person.

The front is not appealing to me, but everything else looks great! Can't wait to see these on the road.

Wow. That thing looks amazing. Still hate 2-door 4-seaters enough that I doubt I'll pick one up, but this is the first car with the spindle grill I liked on first glance.

I think the rear looks absolutely stunning. The side profile creases are also gorgeous. The front is pretty good, but would probably be made better with an F-Sport styled grille. I'm really liking the new boldness of Lexus' styling. Mix that with the reliability and build quality, and it gives the German rivals something to seriously worry about.

One thing I also noticed is in the interior shot, there is a touchpad instead of a remote touch controller. Is this something that's coming for all new models?

Rear/sides is ok.....but WTF is up with the front???? That grill is hideous.

Love the taillights and trunklid design.

Interior is same as IS pretty much, looks like it has same small Nav screen.

Overall its Ok - atleast Lexus has a proper coupe for first time since 2000! Lol

They also touched up the steering wheel to get rid of the game console like controller.

Why not just call it the IS C instead of creating a whole new name for something with the same interior and exterior cues

It doesn't look anything like the IS outside...I think it makes more sense for it to be a separate model from the IS.

Following suit with BMW (3 series/4 Series) and Audi (A4/A5) so that they can position the coupes as a half step more premium model than the sedan.

Ummm really??? LFA is a design study of which 500 were made - not a regular car model, maybe u should learn about it.

Lets stay on topic on the exciting RC.
The RC-F will look like a BEAST if the regular model is this agressive.

loooks great.. cant wait to see the Fsport version... if I didnt have to put a carseat in the back, probably would get this over the IS.. I wonder if its the same exact 3.5L V6 (306/277).. reminds me of an M6 / R8 from side profile..

Really like the direction Lexus is going into.. bringing sportiness into the brand!!
