Is Lexus Developing an RC Four-Door Coupe?

Lexus RC Four-Door Coupe

Along with their rumors on the Lexus GS F, Autocar also suggests a four-door RC F is on the way:

Following the GS F will be a four-door version of the RC F, which will feature identical underpinnings to the coup√© but extra practicality and a slightly lower price tag. Expect to see the saloon RC F “sometime in 2016”.¬†This may well be followed by a convertible version.

This is a strange one, because a four-door RC coupe would crowd the Lexus lineup. How would an RS (Racing Sedan) compare in size to the IS & GS? Would Lexus release a RS F at the expense of a next-generation IS F, or would they be competing with one another?

The thing is, there’s no way to apply logic to the four-door coupe — it’s probably the most stylish and least functional body style out there, yet every major luxury manufacturer except Lexus has (at least) one in the lineup.

Considering the current Lexus focus on design, can they ignore the four-door coupe segment for much longer?
