Lexus Files LFA Trademark

Lexus LFA

It’s been discovered that Toyota registered “LFA” at US Patent and Trademark Office on December 1st, 2008. It’s been interpreted by many as a positive sign, but this could be seen in two ways:

  1. Lexus is moving forward with the supercar, and taking care of the name trademark is one of the many steps necessary.
  2. Lexus doesn’t want anyone else registering “LFA”, regardless of their own plans.

Being an optimist, I believe it’s the former rather than the latter, even though it puts a giant hole in my theory that the LF-A concept was really the new SC. (Also, looks like the name is losing the hyphen.)
