There is no Lexus LQ, because that wasn't a Lexus nameplate for trademark filing. It was a Toyota concept as mentioned by @CRSKTN in 2019.I am under the general assumption a LC F, LS F and LX F are coming.... we are all curious whats going on with the "LQ" crossover flagship. I assume a LQ F would come.
But who knows at this point.
A LS F would make me drool tbh......
I would buy an LX-F for use at a family home in West Africa. It could bear the climate and last long.
They have not registered such a trademark with any legal entities, that they are producing such a vehicle which needs its nameplate secured. No LS-F this generation unless launching 30 or more months at minimum from now, as LS will probably be redesigned in 2023-24 and a 1-2 year run isn't worth the investment.
LC will have an 8 to 10 year run I imagine, which allows for a 3-5 year LC-F run.
XF50 went into production in 2017, so it will likely not live beyond 2025. No trademarks for LS-F have been filed and that happens 2 to 3 years ahead of launch. Do that now and you're looking at a 2023 model at the very earliest.I have no idea is it coming or not, however so far I think that they will be using these F models as marketing for the brand and not as something they will make money on.
In that sense, LS-F seems reasonable bet.
In general their strategy is a lot more F in the future. Of various kinds... I saw an rumor of UX getting 270hp version of GR Yaris engine... which makes a lot of sense to me, where they have something akin to SQ3 and not RSQ3.
Only one V8 LS mule was seen in 2017 and no more. It's likely not coming, as model run would be too short. Some improvements to the LS range definitely should come.
Something changed between 2017 and 2019 internally. As LC-F will come, but F sedans are seemingly dead.
