Lexus GS F Spy Photos
Sep 29, 2014 - 4:41 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Now that the Lexus RC F is heading to dealerships, the Japanese automaker is working on a high-performance version of its GS luxury sedan.

The stylish RC F coupe was built to compete against the BMW M4 and the next addition to the Japanese automaker’s F lineup will be the GS F sedan, which will target the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG C63. The GS F takes styling cues from the RC F with a more pronounced front end, sportier wheels and larger brakes.

In the rear, expect a quad-tip exhaust setup and a subtle lip spoiler on the trunk while power will likely come from the same powerplant as the RC F, a 5.0-liter V8 with around 500 to 550 hp.

It's official: Lexus registers IS 200t trademark
Jul 01, 2014 - 11:32 PM - by jruhi4

On 24 September 2012, the usually reticent and close-to-the-vest Toyota broke form and publicized its Status of Environmental Technology Development and Future Plans report, among whose many revelations was word of a new 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged AR engine based on the 2.5-liter 2AR-FE gasoline engine. But which vehicle - to debut during the 2014 calendar year - would be the chosen first recipient of the carmaker's first boosted non-diesel engine since the 2002 Japanese domestic market demise of the much-loved 2JZ-GTE inline 6? Barely a month later, my.IS' own Canadian national moderator k3vo unearthed United States and Canadian trademark applications for NX200t, which yours truly correctly predicted would grace Lexus' long-rumored, RAV4-derived sub-RX crossover.

Given the way luxury car brands the world over have gravitated towards 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine options, it would only be common sense that Lexus' first-ever gas turbo should see applications beyond the NX, and ... [Read More]

IS 25 Aniversario: Spain kicks off Lexus' silver anniversary special editions
Jun 30, 2014 - 2:03 PM - by jruhi4

In January 1989, the Detroit Auto Show, then a regional dealer event, morphed into the far larger and more significant North American International Auto Show. Among its numerous world debuts, three in particular stand out: the original Dodge Viper R/T 10 concept car and the launch of Nissan and Toyota's full-fledged luxury marques: Infiniti and Lexus. The latter saw its flagship LS 400 sedan go into production in May of that year, with U.S. sales beginning in September 1989, followed by limited exports to Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Curiously, these momentous occasions' 25th, or silver anniversary this year have seen only scant mentions and, to date, only one full-on commemorative edition vehicle. (In stark contrast, Mazda's MX-5 Miata roadster, another car first born in 1989, has unveiled its official 25th Anniversary Edition, for which the 100-car U.S. allocation - out of a total of 1000 to be built - sold out in 10 minutes).

So, which market gets the honors of unveiling Lexus' first 25th-anniversary vehicle? The United States, always the brand's primary and most popular market? Nope, we haven't yet heard a peep in this... [Read More]

Lexus RC-F May Get Dual Clutch Gearbox
Jun 26, 2014 - 12:06 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
Would the Lexus RC F and IS F models benefit from a dual-clutch gearbox?

The IS F has admittedly not caught onto the high-performance luxury segment as well as the Japanese automaker would like. What Lexus was hoping would be a competitor to the BMW M3 has simply become an anomaly in the lineup, not even receiving the same styling and design updates as the standard IS sedan. But now, with the RC F revealed and heading to dealerships before the end of the year, the need of a dual-clutch gearbox is becoming more prevalent.

Which is why Toyota Motorsport GmbH has been tasked with the job of developing what its calling a manual-shift gearbox, which is likely a dual-clutch transmission. In a recent interview, TMG business operations director Rob Leupen shared the news of the gearbox’s development but also noted that development of hybrid technology for the next-generation IS F is
