New Lexus Vehicle to Debut Next Week at Detroit Auto Show

Lexus Announcement Detroit

Lexus has confirmed a new vehicle will debut at the Detroit Auto Show next week with an announcement on Lexus USA website.

There is no teaser image of the vehicle accompanying the announcement, only a burnout rubber background that could suggest a performance model. Of course, rumors for the last month have pointed toward a production version of the LF-LC concept shown at the Detroit show in 2012.

The vehicle reveal will be broadcast live from the Detroit Auto Show on Monday, January 11th at 12:45pm ET/9:45am PT.

Any chance it's a new ISF? I mean I'm super excited for a high performance sports car/sedan whatever it will be but I have a small glimmer of hope of affording like an ISF and like no chance of SC/LC lol

My excitement is shared with everyone. This LC is gonna be an amazing new car that Lexus IS bringing and it also previews the step Lexus will be taking in the coming years. Thank you to one of the users here for sharing because you just got me even more excited for the unveiling! I really wanna see what that interior looks like

Excited to see the pre-production model. I wonder if we'll see an AWD variant w/ Front & Rear TVDs.

Yep....looks like it is going to be the LC500. Autoblog has a few details here, but not much.http://www.autoblog.com/2015/12/05/lexus-lc-500-detroit-auto-show/Believe it or not, it's been nearly four years since we first saw the Lexus LF-LC Concept. Its swoopy style and spindle grille kicked off a big design revolution for Lexus, and we saw a number of LF-LC design elements work their way onto production cars. But now, rumor has it a full-on production version will see the light of day, and soon.Motoring.com.au says the LC 500 coupe will show its face at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show in January, and we have little reason to doubt this. In fact, it's kind of been a long time coming. The LC was reportedly approved for production in 2013, and though we were told it might resurrect the SC name, Lexus filed copyright applications for "LC 500" and "LC 500h." Oh, and a prototype of this car was recently spotted testing.The LC 500 will arrive with – no surprise here – Lexus' naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8, plucked from the RC F and GS F. That said, Motoring says it could arrive with a new, 10-speed automatic transmission from Aisin. As for the LC 500h, Motoring thinks it'll be powered by a, 3.5-liter V6-based hybrid drive system that could produce something like 470 horsepower – not the current V6/hybrid unit from the GS 450h. A hotter LC F should follow in a couple of years, and earlier reports suggest it could make something like 600 horsepower.Of course, Lexus refuses to comment on future product speculation, so we don't have any official proof that this is actually happening. But it all makes a lot of sense. Watch this space in two months' time for more details.

If I'm Lexus, I add a small turbo to the base V8 to fill in any torque deficit. The LCF can get the twin-turbo treatment. Can't wait to see the new next-generation interior and the specs on the new hybrid system. I am expecting revolutionary, not evolutionary upgrades.BD
