For all of the complainers in this thread, I believe Lexus is most focused on pricing it inline with the BMW 6-Series in the US. The only real problem with that only is how BMW's current F12 coupe,...

For those that keep claiming the (010B) MY2018 Toyota Camry will no longer offer a V6, those are purely rumours. The XSE shown above does come standard with a NA V6 from the 2GR family. It will offer...

Thanks, I understand such speculating, as it is very difficult to know what they are up to, when this is probably the most secretive project at Toyota, unless an LFA replacement is in the cards.

Not sure if you just corrected yourself, but there was no transition from concept to production.

I am certain that the 2018 LS itself was designed a little before the 2015 LF-FC Concept, which was...

Really? What does that have to do with anything? It isn't as if Toyota has the best names all around, especially the nameplate Isis. Atenza has been around since 2000 (JP trademark), well before...

The Mag X rendering photo was posted by me (Carmaker1) to Lexus Enthusiast, which Carscoops took and muddled the information.

As I thought (and now quietly confirmed), this is the next QX50 in light disguise, which will go on sale late next year as a MY2018.

To be honest, I was at a loss as to what this concept was for in the teasers. Just so everyone knows, Shiro Nakamura avidly (in a veiled, political manner) gushed about the "next" QX50 in October...

Toyota Patents New Augmented Reality HUD System, Likely For 2018 LS Flagship

Seems that this new patent might concern technology for the 2018 LS, if not the 2018 LC (they are currently mum about LC tech innovations).

I agree, this is much better than the Sequoia anyway (a very old design). Toyota gives me the impression, they intended to cancel it, then backed out. Design is subjective, even though I am not...

The LC will introduce a new modular platform, so I'd wager that it will not be based on the LS, but very close to it. Judging by both the LF-LC and LF-FC concept interiors, one can see the...
