An unusual slide was shown during Toyota CEO Jim Lentz’s speech to the Society of Automotive Analysts prior to the Detroit Auto Show — while talking about Lexus in 2014, an image of what looks like a production LF-NX compact crossover was shown:
There’s little reason to doubt the authenticity of this image, which is good news — the production NX takes the wild concept and shaves away the excess, leaving an extremely attractive compact crossover.

What does everyone think?
