Lexus Europe announced today that two new F Sport vehicles will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March — here’s the exact phrasing from the press release:
The full range of Lexus F SPORT hybrid vehicles will be on display at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, including two new vehicles to be launched in 2012.
Offering customers the opportunity to experience the true spirit of F performance models in a wider range of Lexus models, the F SPORT grade brings bespoke design features and a new depth of driving engagement and ownership satisfaction.
Time for a little sleuthing:
- With no mention of a new model debut, these new F Sport vehicles would almost have to be performance versions of an existing model.
- Considering the location of the reveal, the models would have to be available in Europe.
- I doubt that Lexus would debut F Sport versions of two different models at the same auto show, so the model in question must be available in two variants — namely, hybrid & non-hybrid.
There’s only two potential models that fit the criteria above, and that would be the RX & LS — but considering that the LS is now six years old, and the numerous rumors pointing to a RX F Sport, I know what my guess is:
(The above is a rendering from a Japanese car magazine, and not a spy shot.)
Of course, it’s all speculation at this point, but we’ll know soon enough — the Lexus press release at the Geneva Motor Show is scheduled for March 6th at 10:30am CET/4:30am EST.
