by on Dec.06, 2017

Lexus will unveil its latest creation, the LF1 Limitless, at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month.

Lexus has always made a point of unveiling its newest most important cars and concept vehicles at the North American International Auto Show and it plans to do it again this coming January.

Lexus announced it plans to reveal a new concept that reflects “the next genre” in luxury crossover vehicles. Created by the CALTY design studio in Southern California, the Lexus LF-1 Limitless is a flagship crossover that redefines the boundaries of luxury, Lexus officials said.

Lexus Aims to Set New Benchmark with 5th-Gen LS

But has the luxury world moved on?

by on Jan.10, 2017

The fifth-generation Lexus LS flagship may not be as impactful as when it debuted in 1989.

When the original Lexus LS made its debut at the 1989 North American International Auto Show, it stood the luxury automotive market on its head. Now the Japanese automaker is back at the NAIAS and hoping that the fifth-generation remake of its flagship sedan will once again set an industry benchmark.

But things have changed dramatically in the intervening years, and the question is whether the new 2018 Lexus will have the relevancy of the original, despite all its refinement and features and a design that is far more cutting edge than almost any other Lexus product before it.

“It is the car that launched a company,” said Jeff Bracken, the U.S. manager of the Lexus brand, as the 2018 LS sedan rolled onto the stage at Detroit’s Cobo Center. (more…)

Lexus Upping Performance Quotient with New RC-F

"Back to the grind" takes on a new meaning.

by on Jan.08, 2014

Lexus is back in the performance game with the new RC F set to debut in Detroit next week.

With rare exception, Lexus isn’t a brand folks typically associate with performance.  The asterisk on the line-up was the original Lexus IS-F, a V-8-powered monster that gave German competitors like the M3 reason to keep a watchful eye on the rearview mirror.

With parent Toyota Motor Co. CEO Akio Toyoda promising to put more “passion” into the brand, Lexus is ready to show that the IS-F wasn’t a fluke.  It’s been hinting for weeks that something sinister was in the works and now we’re getting more than just a series of teasers as the Japanese luxury maker lifts the current on the new Lexus RC F.

Auto Show Insider!

The performance coupe, the maker asserts, is “giving new meaning to ‘back to the grind,” with a big V-8 engine that is expected to deliver something in excess of the original IS-F model’s 407 horsepower.  Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for the formal debut during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week to get precise numbers.

Lexus Teases New High-Performance F Model

Debut Detroit planned; is this the new RC Coupe?

by on Dec.09, 2013

Lexus offers a tease of its next F model.

Lexus has dropped a teaser that will likely have lots of folks scratching their heads over the next month trying to figure out what “the newest Lexus F model” actually will be.

The luxury arm of Toyota has been trying to engineer more performance into its products over the last several years, and with its various F models drawing in the sort of younger buyers it’s desperate to attract, there’s little surprise that Lexus has a big unveiling planned for the North American International Auto Show when it opens up in Detroit next month.

But, at least for the moment, we’re left with little more than this close-up of the front-left fender and a few tantalizing hints from Lexus, which declares, “Engineered from scratch, one performance layer at a time, the newest F model promises a bold, gritty, experience synonymous with the famed Lexus F heritage.”
