I wouldn't bank on it unless they unveil a TTV8 LS-F

That seems to make the most sense.

I'd put the likelihood at something like 0.01%.

ZERO chance

LC F will get a TT V8 which is supposed to be 2020MY

Supercharged V4 is more likely

I banked on that and it never came so I have low hopes Lexus will come out with a TTV8, although its def what they need Lexus may be done with V8's for the most part.

Just my take but the LS is such a low volume seller, wouldn't make sense to install a new powertrain on a vehicle (unless they had a new V8 for the rest of Toyota's vehicles that could share this powertrain)...

My gut feel says no..
