Lexus shall be focused on the FR not the FF even if it's rebadged
What's even better than FR? MR!

If we are talking about their products ten years from today there will be lots of MR, because that's the superior way to package an electric powertrain. Maybe not the best because four in-wheel motors with full torque vectoring is the holy grail.

Once EV becomes mainstream we will see very few FF vehicles because there's zero to negative benefit to do a FF EV or FCV. Well technically they can make a FF EV; it's just a dumb idea.

The IS line definitely needs to be updated and bring back the IS F with at least 426hp - 504hp (C63S has 503hp and M3 has 425hp) and IS 300h to North America.

But they keep focusing and injecting FF so much in the same time they keep alienated their FR
