Hey guys, not sure if this is frowned upon, but I started my own YouTube channel and created a vid about some updates on the LFR. It’s near the middle of the video if you want to skip the Supra news. First vid, so don’t judge too much. Feel free to like/sub. Last time I’ll post about the channel here. Thanks 🙏.

I probably have posted these before but can't recall.
From Japanese patent/design filings
Do car companies usually patent GT3/other racing class vehicle designs?

Seems to be not too common... Could only find Porsche getting some patents on their GT3.

I will highlight this:
Hmm… not sure if it is for the gt3. It’s missing the spoiler… the front lip is on there though.

Is it under "Passenger Car" too?

They separately patented the rear light bar and tail light treatment.

Toyota signals GT3 intentions with GR GT3 Concept launch

2012 Lexus LFA - Autoblog
All New 2020 Lexus NX | Tony Graham Lexus
Toyota GR GT3 Appears With Lexus Badge | CarBuzz


I will say this:
I do not see a filing for this:

The stunning new Lexus BEV Sport Concept | Erin Park Lexus in Mississauga



I also don't see many non-production cars with specific design elements separately patented.

I'm assuming a few bit of details will change with the Lexus GT3 Concept to production LFR... like the L-Shaped LEDs position switched to the regular Lexus position

Hmmm… Well, Scott Pruitt went pretty hard on getting this out. Pictures, video (wished I saved it).
