    Take a Guess?

    That was one of the things that steered me away from seeking an industrial design degree. Not sure how things are now, but back in the mid-1970s, it was a 5-year program at Los Angeles' Art Center College of Design only to lead to a starting salary that was laughably low, plus the recession...

    Take a Guess?

    I could tell a mile away that the photos were of the final approved 1:1 scale clay model for Land Cruiser 200. As a teenager, I harbored dreams of becoming a car designer. As such, I subscribed to the bilingual English/Japanese Car Styling and to its Style Auto European inspiration (until I...

    New Solid-State Battery Developed for Lexus Electric Vehicles

    InsideEVs and Electrek are notorious Elon Musk and Tesla lap dogs and cheerleaders and Toyota can do no right by their biased standards. For Toyota, probably Panasonic. Do you have a link? From my research, what NGK unveiled last month was a Sodium Sulfur Zinc rechargeable battery that has...

    Production Lexus LC Convertible to Debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed

    As Krew correctly noted in his front page commentary news story, the origin of the Goodwood Festival of Speed debut for LC Convertible rumors is with Chris Paukert of RoadShow by CNET.

    Introducing the Updated 2020 Lexus RX & RX F SPORT

    2nd and 3rd-gen RX were on a 6-year cycle with a refresh on the 4th model year. That would've suggested that 4RX's refresh should've come for the 2019 model year. Besides the infotainment update, could managing the 3-row RX L product cadence been a secondary reason for the roughly one-year delay...
