I think I read that the RC platform will be somewhere between the GS and IS platform. If so, should the RC ride better than the IS? I've been seriously considering the RC, but after having a '14 IS250 as a loaner car the past couple of days I'm not so sure. The IS ride seems more bumpy and there is more road noise than with my GS.

The RC wheel base is around 107 inches so is about 3 inches shorter than the IS wheelbase. This generally indicates a stiffer ride if all the other fadtors are the same. RC will have larger stiffer tires, so it souuld drive like a sports car with a stiff ride compared to the base IS>
We developed RC to deliver extra response that exhilarates rather than overwhelms drivers, in keeping with the true spirit of Japanese hospitality, or omotenashi., noted Junichi Furuyama, RC and IS chief engineer.
RC is part of a ride and handling revolution at Lexus, which started with GS mid-size luxury sedan and continued with the new IS sport sedan. The RC is a stand-alone model, rather than a two-door derivative of a sedan. Based on the GS platform, the coupe differs in all dimensions from the GS and IS lines.
