It’s the last day of 2008, making it the perfect day to list the most popular stories over the last year. Let’s start:

Early this year, I was struck by the idea that the Lexus LF-A was actually the F-Sport version of the next SC, and this was written to support the idea. This is also one of my only feature articles on the site.

This was the first look at the Project GS, a heavily modified Lexus GS 460 by FiveAxis, which quickly carved a spot into my top-five Lexus’ of all time.

8. New Job Design Lexus LS Body Kit

Regardless of its Buick VIP looks, this Job Design body kit for the 4th Generation Lexus LS was quite a hit.

7. Lexus IS Convertible Spotted

It was a long time coming, and these first spy shots of the Lexus IS convertible were grainy enough that it wasn’t even clear what we were looking at. Turns out the IS convertible arrived shortly after.

5. Video of the 2010 Lexus RX Prototype

Better watch this video, because it’s probably the only time you’ll see a Lexus RX doing laps at Nürburgring in Germany.

3. Is this the 2009 Lexus IS?

Well, we can now say with certainty that this was truly a photochop, but this mockup from late 2007 is still an appealing looking IS. Gets me thinking, I wonder what the third-generation IS is going to look like?
