Lexus Australia CEO Scott Thompson has addressed the CNET report that a production version of LC Convertible will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month — from Motoring Australia:
“The LC Convertible is a very real possibility for the Australian market, so we’re looking at it now to see if there’s a production opportunity,” he told carsales.com.au today.
