No, the vast majority of current owners bought it at 25-30k. That’s barely a new Corolla. They are not in the market. There are a couple guys that told me they are but they are a different IS F owner. What I’ve seen is most talking crap about the 500. It’s sad.
That's straight up sunk cost fallacy. Even worse, they're not helping out overall - V8 powered sedans have mostly disappeared except in the lineup of less than a handful of manufacturers. It should be in their interest to support Lexus' efforts to keep cars like these alive, even if they're not buying one.
