Lexus RC F SPORT Prototype Spotted?

Lexus RC F SPORT Hero

A blue Lexus RC 350 has been spotted in California sporting a covered up fender badge — here a couple more photos:

The coupe is near identical to the standard RC, but look closely at the fender and there’s a piece of blue tape covering up what I would assume is an F SPORT badge:

If this is meant to be a secret F SPORT prototype, why the badge, the different wheels, the Ultrasonic Blue? This barely concealed mystery suggests one thing to me — it shouldn’t be long before we see the actual RC F SPORT.
