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

GR Super Sport cannot be canceled. It's a homologation car that will be available for very special few. In other words it's nothing truly special, it's the race car dressed up in street clothing which means it's just another CLK-GTR or 911 GT1. These cars are worse in every way than the LFA on the actual road and their value didn't appreciate that much over the time even though at the first glance they seem way too exotic. Mercedes also has troubles with its own AMG ONE. If I was to guess I would say both GR Super Sport and AMG ONE will be disappointments for us fans that expect something great out of them. These cars will be limited in every way possible. Great tech showcase car btw.

Lexus UK has published some new photos of the Electrified Sport concept revealed last month:

This concept foretells a new battery-electric supercar expected to be the spiritual successor of the LFA, with a 0–60mph time in just over two seconds and an expected range of 435 miles.
It’s staggering how much the Lexus design language will have to change over the next eight years, and it leads to an interesting question — how much will these concepts influence the design of next-generation production models?

Don't shoot the messenger, this guy says it "will share underpinnings with a future Toyota sports car".

I would think at this point I know a bit lol. The Supra and this car are completely unrelated. These new EV’s are all new In addition wait till you see the final version. A lot of surprises in store.

Wish I could say more.

I'm assuming we might have another LC on our hand in terms of concept to production.

Also Mike what news can we expect to drop first this year from Lexus? A production ready RZ or RX or something completely off the raider...

whatever they are cooking up if it make it to the street it looks promising. And we can be sure it will be different from whatever it is suppose to compete with
