I wonder if matte paint is difficult to keep clean?
Normally, it's trickier and more delicate than regular gloss paint (if I remember correctly, folks opting for the Hyundai Veloster's factory matte paint option were admonished not to run it through an automated car wash). Lexus, however, notes in its official 10th Anniversary RC F / GS F U.S. news release that:

Particular care was taken to assure that the unique finish was durable enough for the rigors of everyday use, including the ability to withstand the average mechanized car wash without degrading the quality of the finish.

With BMW/Mercedes you are advised not to use a car wash, hand wash only and lightly. Also if the car is in an accident its a PITA to color match.

But there is nothing like a beautiful matte OEM job.

I'm not sure why they decided to go with the PS2 rather than a Cup 2 tire.

Very cool but realistically how many are they going to sell?


I really like this new blue color scheme but it really needs to be an optional feature because Lexus always have limited interior options.

Is there any confirmation that the GS will continue to be made? The sales of the GS are pathetic and the ES offers most of what the GS does at a much lower price. I fully realise that the petrol heads will not agree but as an average purchaser who wants a luxurious sedan the ES offers very good value by comparison.
What will happen to the CT now that the UX is to be launched, the Ct is still available outside of the U.S.
Judging by the 2.5 h name plate can we assume the UX will be above the CT in the line up? Compete with the NX?

No word one way or the other at this point. Lexus tends to be very hush-hush and under the radar whenever they're discontinuing a model line. Case in point: HS.

Worth noting, however, is that Europe is only getting the 10th Anniversary Special Edition of the RC F, and not the 10th Anniversary GS F available in the United States and Japan.

What will happen to the CT now that the UX is to be launched? (The CT is still available outside of the U.S.)
Having just gotten its second facelift, CT should continue outside North America until at least the end of the 2020 model year. What happens beyond that point depends on how much CT sales decline versus the new UX.

Rob Grieveson
Judging by the 2.5 h name plate can we assume the UX will be above the CT in the line up? Compete with the NX?
UX will be notably smaller than NX. UX will also use a smaller engine (UX 250h = 2-liter, 4-cylinder hybrid) than NX (NX 300H = 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder hybrid).
