Imagining a Lexus IS Coupe

Photochopper Theophilus Chin has rendered a coupe based on the all-new third-generation Lexus IS:

Lexus IS Coupe Front

Lexus IS Coupe Side

Lexus IS Coupe Rear

With the IS sedan as a starting point and LF-CC concept to serve as inspiration, Theophilus has turned in a thoroughly convincing effort — in fact, I would not be disappointed if the production coupe (reportedly scheduled for 2015) looks very similar.

i like the sedan a lot but this coupe rendering looks 10 times better.  I typically only go for our a 4 door or SUV but would strongly consider this!

What Lexus should do is have that rear quarter window power down, like big Benz CL coupe BD

    Considering the RC will likely come in Coupe (fixed-top) and Convertible (moveable roof) the technology for rear window to power down could just be carried over. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the current IS-C has that ability. In fact the whole rear seat setup can be carried over through both models.

If the IS coupe was to look like this, it would be a lot nicer than the 4 door imo. This looks very sleek!

Perfect! They just needed to add the exhaust tips cause the bottom looks strange w/o one.

    it's the hybrid version, it's meant to be like that. But you're right they'll have to make it look better on the gas versions.

Why would Lexus release the RC and an IS-C? Are they not essentially the same car?

    Since the IS-C has been continued for 2014 model year. I think the IS-C will become a variant of the RC, because yes they are essentially the same thing.

    IS stands for Intelligent Sedan therefore an IS-C is no sedan hence the rename to RC. Now we'll have to figure out what does the R stands for as it is pretty obvious the C means coupe.
