Yup. The '13 ES, GS, and LS have white LEDs under the strip.

The car looks nice but not a fan of the fog lights.

it has interior ambient lighting, Lexus Japan claims is that this application is first for Lexus, so it is probably something different/more than in LS.

compared to 3IS, it has a lot more leather on doors and centre tunnel, more sporty instruments as well.

I think hoovey was saying something like $2k-3$ more than 3IS... which means it will sell a lot.

Are these pictures of the road version or a concept? Looks like the final product, but not sure...

These pics are making me even more glad that I am waiting until the 2015's come out. I too wonder what will be stripped away from the US version and I would really like to know where the pricing will be compared to the 3IS. This new shade of red looks intriguing

The RC is a stunning coupe, I have to say Lexus is bring concept cars to life! It does not look really watered down once you see the production version, the car really looks like a concept than production. Now that is how you separate your styling vision from everyone else. I can't wait to see the RC-F now!

As always, Lexus finally got the interior right. Previous Lexus were good quality, but boring to look at. I would buy this car just for the interior alone. Well done

I don't see the IS being updated until a mid-life facelift, but is Lexus doing away with the 'joystick' controller and replacing it with a touchpad? I wonder if the cursor on the screen is still fixed and toggles between icons or is now fluid. Otherwise, don't like the name, RC; sounds like 'radio controlled'. And convertible version in the pipeline for sure.

Wednesday - you and I both! At this point I'm much less concerned with price than I am getting it the way I want it. Hopefully info on the FSport version will come soon.

Design is excellent.

But I am more concerned about engineering.

If they can make this lighter than the sedan, and pump a little extra power from the engine, then this will be killer.

Wow, it's nice to see the production(near-production?) photos release! I'm relieved to say that I am pleased with the design. The front end didn't win me over the first glance, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. The side profile is to die for, it's very attractive. I hope I can convince the wifey to get this over the CT.
