According to the latest report from Japanese magazine Best Car, the production model Lexus LF-1 Limitless will debut in 2022 squarely aimed at the Porsche Cayenne.
The article outlines the LF-1’s tentative dimensions:
- Wheelbase: 2990mm (117.7”)
- Length: 5005mm (197”)
- Width: 1980mm (78”)
- Height: 1595mm (62.8”)
This aligns closely with the new Porsche Cayenne Coupe, with the LF-1 2.8” (71mm) longer, 3.2” (81mm) lower, and a 3” (76mm) increase in wheelbase.
Best Car also outlines the potential powertrains, starting with a Dynamic Force 4L twin turbo V8 that will replace the current 2UR-GSE 5L V8 used in the LC 500. Considering this engine is also expected to power a high-performance LC F model, it’s possible we may see a range of horsepower options.
There’s also mention of a Dynamic Force 3L twin turbo V6 hybrid, which would be the first-ever Lexus turbocharged hybrid engine and presumably replace the currently 3.5L V6 hybrid used in the LC & LS flagship models.
