I guess so. The base engine starts @ $18k, but if you're going for the larger engine, you might as well get the 6 for nearly the same price.

No one has mentioned the Mazda 3? You can get literally every option you'll find on an A4 or C-class or 3 series for $20-grand less (except for power, but the 184-hp I-4 is pretty solid).

Not really a fair comment. Engineers test the breaking limits of things to create more robust designs. In this case, it's a lack of stress that's leading to the problems. We could track the problem...

The truth is, on the dealer's lot, the grille can be overwhelming, but when you see it on the road, the car stands out. BMWs, Audis, & Mercedes sort of blend together, but Lexus does not. And I think...

Right. So it should have been called a GS500. The topic of this thread is, what is the game plan for the Lexus F brand?

No, he's wondering what is Lexus' goal with its F cars. I ask the same question - the RC F is a compromise of a platform, and the GS F is just kind of... what? They should have just called it a...

The GX replacement needs a 3rd row. The RX does not, just like the Q5 & GLE do not.

Not sure why Jalopnik thinks the RX competes against an Acura and a Honda.

Not to mention that the same money today buys a car that would run circles around those from 1995, and $30k can get something that's quite close. So, the increase in price is necessary to offer...

Depends on what you mean. When you say "technology" do you mean software? Or do you mean technologies such as D4S, active torque vectoring, rear wheel steering, etc, that are mechanical in nature?

I think the issue is calling it a GS F is a black eye for the F brand. It should have been an GS500 F Sport, like the CTS V-Sport uses the ATS-V's engine, so would the GS500 F Sport use the RC-F's...
