After looking at the new Lexus concept teaser all day, I’m still no closer to figuring out what it could be — thinking it over, I’ve narrowed it down to three possibilities:
- The next-generation SC – This is what I’m hoping for, though if the rest of the concept is as sharply defined as this tiny teaser, it would make for a drastic departure from the second-generation SC.
- The next-generation IS – The sharp crease that extends from the grille into the hood is very similar to the current IS — plus, this shot immediately reminded me of an IS photoshop released earlier in the year (which means absolutely nothing, but it stuck with me regardless).
- A Lexus 86/Something Brand New – Whether or not Lexus should make their own version of the GT 86, the idea that it would debut so soon after the Toyota/Scion/Subaru models is a longshot, to say the least — in fact, I would be surprised to see Lexus go off the board with something brand new when so many of their existing models need to be updated.
That’s been my train of thought, but it hasn’t lead me any closer to a decision — now I want to know what everyone else thinks, so it’s time for a vote:
Voting closes in a week — can’t wait to see how this one ends up!
