Imagining a 2014 Lexus IS Hatchback

Lexus IS Hatchback Rear

Fresh from his rendering of an IS SportCross wagon, master photochopper Theophilus Chin has created a smaller IS-inspired hatchback:

Lexus IS Hatchback Front

Lexus IS Hatchback Side

This may just be a merger of the CT & IS models, but the resulting vehicle shows some real character — always fun to see what Theophilus has dreamed up.

    That's just and IS front moulded with a CT's back. Doubt That Lexus would design an IS Sportback that looks like this.. Theophilus is a Malaysian car enthusiast.. Some of his renderings are extremely identical to actual production cars.. Haha but don't think this IS rendering will hit the mark.
    • Yeah, it's not really much more than a CT & IS pushed together -- still, I can't resist posting Theophilus' work, he does such a great job.
  2. The SportCross design he did last month was definitely better. I'll never accuse the CT of being good-looking..... BD
  3. i don't like luxury hatchbacks. most of them don't look good either.
  4. Better than the CT at the rear end.
  5. For a hot hatch, there is nothing note-worthy about this design. Absolutely BLAND & boring, which is the mantra Akio is suppose to be swaying away from. #Terrible.
  6. IS coupe will arrive in 2015. CT facelift this december. ;-)
  7. I actually like it a lot. I would take one with F Sport if that was a CT250/350. I had 3 previous VW GTi's and damn I miss the practicality and fun of that car. If there was a hatch version of the new IS with that body, I would trade my 2IS.
  8. No for any type of hatchback! Ct200h is more than enough..
