Interesting package. However at that price, the real car "F" comes to mind.

Would be nice to see a limited run of IS-F convertibles before this generation is up (like what Audi did with the RS4).

I'd buy a $60k+ ISF over a $55k "special" F-sport edition IS350c

I'd buy a $60k+ M3 over a $60k 335iS.

I don't see a market for cars like this special F-sport equipped IS350c or the 335iS. I'm sure one exists however small it may be, but this car just doesn't appeal to me. The price is a huge turn off.

The price may not be justified IMO, but those rims (10 spoke) look great on the IS C. But I'm looking forward to seeing these in showrooms alongside the CT

Aesthetically, I love how it looks. Love both the classic F sport and new 10 spoke rims. However, the very existence of cars like the ISF/M3 in the $60k-$70k range is a turn off for me. If ISFs/M3s/etc. cost $80 or $90k+, then a $55k special edition IS 350c or $60k 335iS would be extremely appealing. It's all relative to me.
