Default Official Lexus RC thread

this is pretty cool, looks like they may be skipping the sedan approach.
of course these are spy shots so who knows?

Those definitely look like pics of an ISF coupe based on the 3IS platform... probably called the RC-F if prior rumors hold to be true. I think it's going to look really sharp. As cool as this car will be in coupe format, I'm still hoping the Lexus makes something for those of us that prefer/need 4 doors though. A GS-F is what I'm looking for!

Lexus did say that a midsize coupe was right around the corner...

If it's like the IS release schedule, we saw similar camoed prototypes less than a year ago with the IS. there's hope we can see the RC in 2014 as a 2015 model!

Excellent. Exactly what they need with the IS line. Finally a 2-door!

So is this going to share the IS badge or is it in fact the RC. I''m inclined to think RC. Both BMW and Infiniti have split their coupe and sedan designations.

I do hope they keep it seperate. IS, ES, GS, LS (s) for sedans, NX, RX, GX, LX (x) for SUVs, RC, SC (c) for coupes. It's just cleaner that way
