I am aware of lending vehicles, but would never expect it between rivals Nissan and Toyota. Regarding the LS and F-Type, I suppose that would've been stateside, as I do not work for the Mahwah...

According to UZJ and myself, we think there might be a J200 LX570 update next year ahead of a late 2016 J300 redesign. I obviously don't work for Toyota, but I have a friend who does in Surrey, UK...

I do not believe Lexus truly intends to compete with our upcoming X360 XJ. Media made similar comments about the Avalon in 2011, yet mostly the styling aspect changed. On that note though, I have...
