'Track Ready' Lexus to Debut at Detroit Auto Show
Dec 17, 2014 - 11:04 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Lexus is teasing a new mystery model that will be making its debut at the upcoming 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

Lexus_F_15NAIAS_002The Japanese company is only letting on that the new model will be part of the ‘F’ brand, which means it’s built to go fast around a racetrack. Currently, the company sells the RC F Coupe, which packs a 5.0-liter V8 that makes 467 hp and 389 lb-ft of torque.

From the look of the photos, the new car in question may be the rebirth of the IS F, which would essentially be an RC F with four doors. However, it may also be a performance version of the company’s larger GS, a car that has been rumored for some time.

Whatever it is, AutoGuide will be live at the Detroit Auto Show to get you all the details.

Lexus registers LC 500 and LC 500h trademarks
Dec 06, 2014 - 5:31 PM - by jruhi4

My.IS's Canada national forum moderator k3vo has learned that, on Monday 24 November 2014, Lexus registered U.S. and Canadian trademarks for LC500 (U.S. Application 86462781 / Canadian Application No. 1704062) and LC500h (U.S. Application 86462851 / Canadian Application No. 1704063). On Tuesday 25 November, Lexus followed suit in Australia, according to Kevin Watts of the Lexus Enthusiast blog. Our esteemed friend and colleague goes on to analyze and comment on the significance and expected powertrain specifications of these future Lexus models. Most of what he states is right on the money, but yours truly can't resist throwing his hat into the ring with a few additional observations.

LC, naturally, is the expected production version of Lexus' much-lauded LF-LC 2+2 sports coupe concept, which was widely rumored to revive the SC badge once it went on sale to the public. Discard those notions, LC it is. Here's what we can expect under the hood, based on those trademark filings:

The Lexus IS sedans for 2015 in the United States
Nov 30, 2014 - 9:51 PM - by jruhi4

On Friday 27 June 2014 (a good month or two earlier than we anticipated), the Lexus USA Newsroom issued information on the 2015 Lexus IS sedans. Given the 2014 model year debut for the 3rd-generation of Lexus' smallest rear-wheel-drive-centric sports sedan, the 2015 model year is one of minor detail and evolutionary changes.

Exterior
Up front, non-F Sport models' standard fog lights are now LED (light-emitting diode)-type. Unfortunately, F Sport models in the United States still make do without any fog lights at all, a boneheaded and irrational decision in our humble opinion. What IS F Sport models do gain, externally, is a horizontal rectangular rear F Sport badge as shown above (placed on the lower left of the trunk lid) to complement the now-traditional front fender badges. And, speaking of dumb decisions, one has, thankfully, been reversed for 2015: F Sport models are now available, as in much of the rest of the world, in the very compelling ... [Read More]

Lexus Reveals Stunning LF-C2 Concept
Nov 19, 2014 - 7:38 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
If you think Lexus’ spindle grille corporate face is extreme, you will want to pay close attention to the concept it just debuted in L.A.

The company just officially unveiled its LF-C2 concept in Southern California, saying it serves as a preview of design cues to come on future Lexus products. It uses a 2+2 seat layout and has absolutely no roof covering, although that probably doesn’t matter because this is only a design concept.

Powertrain details are completely undisclosed, but the concept does serve as an indicator if not an outright confirmation that Lexus is eyeing a new convertible grand touring car to fill a slot that is currently only being filled by the outdated IS C.

Lexus is still keeping specific plans for a production car in the dark, but the LF-C2 looks like little more than a thinly-veiled preview of an open top version of the new RC sport coupe. The concept is 185.6 inches long or only a whisper greater than the production RC 350 and is exactly the same width as that car at 72.4 inches.

The Official SEMA Show After Party, And Everyone's Invited.
Oct 17, 2014 - 10:39 AM - by AutoGuide.com
Quote:
There's going to be something different about the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this year that might be worth planning a trip around. This year, the show's organizers will give people in Sin City a chance to see the show in person regardless of whether or not they are directly affiliated with the automobile industry. SEMA is one of the largest trade shows the city hosts every year, but normally admission is reserved for people who are there on "official" business. Typically, that means its a mostly off-limits mecca for modified car enthusiasts, but that won't be true this year because on Friday, November 7, much of the show will be publicly on display for "SEMA Ignited." From 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., cars from the show will pour out of the Las Vegas Convention Center onto the Strip. The show's organizers said they decided to add the event because there have been so many enthusiasts crowding around the exit at the end of
