Lexus LF-LC Production Model in 2016?

Lexus LF-LC in 2016?

Car & Driver is reporting that a production model based on the Lexus LF-LC concept could be released in 2016:

A two-plus-two sports coupe concept from Toyota’s California design studio that could be Lexus’s answer to the Aston Martin DB9 if, of course, it reaches production. More expensive and more driver-oriented than the defunct SC430 convertible, this “poor man’s LFA” (it’ll cost about half as much) will squeeze at least 500 horsepower from its hybrid powertrain.

A 2016 release date lines up with previous rumors — the magazine also suggests that the production LF-LC will be powered by a hybrid V8 power train and priced just below $200,000.

  1. Fingers crossed! :-D
  2. I EXPECT an all-new LS at the 2015 Detroit International Auto Show, and a production Lexus LFC at the 2016 Detroit International Auto Show I HOPE they have an ICE and Hybrid engine portfolio. The CT being hybrid-only has definitely hurt sales and limited appeal..... BD
    • You have the wrong car, as from what I remember the "LFC"(really LF-C) is a 10-year old cabriolet concept previewing the 2003 final design of the 2006-2013 IS. Perhaps you meant LF-LC.
  3. They would have to pay me $200,000 to drive that. So ugly!
  4. Thats a pitty, I would of hope it would be an attainable model, priced around 911 money.I would of thought they would go for a volume thing now that the LFA is out of the way.
    • I'd be very surprised if they would just have a $200k hybrid model, and nothing near the LS600hL price, with a V8 from the LS. They wouldn't waste a design this good on a hybrid-only powertrain. That just wouldn't be good business..... BD
    • MT

      If something would be good business doesn't mean they do it. Just look at the IS300h in the north american market.
    • Lexus is here to sell cars, so they should make the best business decision. I don't see your point there..... BD
  5. Yeah a hybrid only would SUCK!
  6. I'm disappointed about the $200k estimated price. I also was hoping for something in the 911 price range.
  7. The is going into production and will cost roughly 100-130
  8. Mag X caught Lexus testing this 4-door coupe mule on a Japanese test track in December (2013). Apparently the SC ("PL14") will be reincarnated in March 2016 as an A7, CLS, and 6er Gran Coupe competitor, while the LF-LC (L777) will still be based on the next-LS platform.
