Video Interview with Lexus IS Chief Engineer Junichi Furuyama

Motor Trend has posted a wonderfully detailed video interview with Lexus IS chief engineer Junichi Furuyama:

It’s always great to see the personality behind the vehicles we drive, and it also illustrates an interesting point — right now, we’re focused on the exterior & interior design of the new IS, but the real test will be how the car handles on the road.

(I met with Furuyama-san during the Detroit autoshow, and making the new IS “fun to drive” was his absolute #1 priority during development — our interview will be published later this week.)
