Lexus has plans for a new full-electric supercar inspired by the LFA, as revealed today at Toyota’s big EV press conference.
Details are sparse, as you can imagine, but some preliminary performance targets have been shared — the unnamed supercar will have a 0–60mph time in just over two seconds, with an expected range of 435 miles.
This surprise reveal was accompanied by two (!!!) other vehicle concepts, which we’ll be covering throughout the day.

It looks awesome but wasn’t the most iconic characteristics of the LFA the engine sound and materials?

I guess when Akio said his original issue with EVs were they all kinda felt the same, I feel the same way. Besides the design it’s just another really fast EV.

I hope it doesn't really turn into the above...the concept looks straight-up like a real supra successor and has nothing in common with the LFA. Don't get me wrong it still looks quite nice, but if there's to be a true LFA successor, the bestcarweb CGI portrayed it better in terms of the overall design direction

This gives me more Supra vibes than LFA the Yellow/Gold vehicle behind it gives me more of the LFA vibes. Looks great but Idk just not really that impressed.

Yellow/Gold vehicle is a reimagined MR2, equally as cool but very small in the other photos.

No relation to the LFA but it sounds good in media speak. More surprises coming :)

So the new LFA isn't the EV sports car that they announced, but is going to be the rumored TTv8 PHEV?
Or are you hinting at something else completely?

Agreed that the LFA name is an easy way to get greater attention for the news story - about 70% of the LFA character is the iconic V10 sound which people have already pointed out is obviously missing from this new car.

So now the GR Super Sport road car is cancelled. Is this "electric LFA" the new halo project?
