Just to clarify, TMC decided to designate every LFA as MY 2012, despite production beginning in 2010. And as is famously known, the design period long predated production.

Even the briefest of google searches show that there are 2008 and older MY cars currently in preowned inventory at various socal Lexus dealers. As I stated, there aren't many, but they are out there.

Unless you're willing to take a 100% bath, always PPI used cars. Even CPO. If the dealer is reluctant, that just means it's a shady dealer.

I guess the point is that I'd never consider taking the G63 off road, just like I wouldn't be driving the G-Professional in town. Then again, I suppose the 6x6 is technically a G63 too.

As noted in the article, it pays homage to the rear view mirror styling of many early Porsche models. Check out, for example, the 2nd/3rd gen 356 (most prominent on the speedster).
