Lexus LC: First GenerationPhotochops

What will the Lexus LC Convertible Look Like?

Lexus LC Convertible

Japanese website Response is reporting that a Lexus LC convertible will be released in 2019 alongside the coupe’s first visual refresh. This may seem like an ambitious timeline, but stranger things have happened.

Flagship convertibles may be a small segment in overall sales, but there’s no questioning its prestige — an LC convertible is a logical step for Lexus as they expand the top-end of their lineup.

Response claims the LC design update will include a more aggressive front-face, including massive daytime running lights that extend into the hood. Technical challenges aside, the dramatic DRLs would be an impressive sight.

There’s also mention of a 3.0L turbocharged V6 with 443 horsepower being introduced with the LC, and I’m of two minds — the engine would be a perfect addition to the Lexus powertrain lineup, but not at the expense of removing the V8 character from the LC coupe.

Would TMC really make a LC convertible when it is a segment with the least sales?

The 2 LFA convertibles never came our, same with the LF-C2

Like I said above, post-TNGA they should have more money and more engineers available for low-volume showoff cars. The Germans make a lot of low-volume models, each of which is sometimes cited as a glaring hole in Lexus' lineup, so I wouldn't mind seeing a few come out. Especially if they look as stunning as that render.

because they are done for marketing reasons, not just sales...

And not introducing all models at the same time is common German practice too, it is to boost PR and marketing when model becomes older.

From my understanding a Convertible was planned from the start..... makes a ton of sense to me....

Both the SC430 and IS250C were poorly reviewed. I hope a potential LC Convertible will put Lexus back on the map for this segment.

It seems like a natural direction, but we and motor journalists said the same when the RC was released. We have to put this in perspective.

I just hope it doesn't end up weighing 5k lbs like LS. The car should be beautiful regardless :heart_eyes:

The only bad way to design a drop top car is when the roof is up.

You don't need a actual production car to boost PR and marketing, the LFC2 is an example.
If they do a convertible then why not do a GS 4 door coupe and a RC convertible as well? On one end Lexus is making ways into the least popular segment and on the other end the GS is 90% killed off.

LC500 is already close to 4400 lbs. A convertible will make it even heavier. Not a very feasible idea.

Lexus could also bring out a 4 door coupe RC as well to compete with the likes of the 4 Series 4 door coupe and Audi A5 four door coupe...Lexus needs to at least keep to then surpass the competition...
