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.
