Absolutely stunning! When I was told a convertible LC was coming I couldn’t imagine it like this...such a beautiful looking car! That side profile picture is incredible and I’ll be one of the first to be waiting outside the dealers to sign the dotted line!! The RC and LC both get new additions on the opposite end of the scale so when the last varient of the LC debuts will the RC receive it’s last one as well? Wonderful times are coming for Lexus and beautiful cars are coming to us :blush:

Looks amazing!!! Curious why this didn't debut at the LA Auto Show since most of the LC convertible sales will be from California since we do have wonderful weather year round... It's great that Lexus is expanding the LC line. 8 Series, you've got some competition...

LC 500h

LC 500h convertible?
LC F (hopefully soon)
LC F convertible? (one can only dream)

Kevin, see if you can get some details about the top! Material/construction, etc.
From multiple sources, it was definitely designed as a soft top. That said, there was no roof in the concept -- LC designers didn't even want to share renderings of what a roof might look like.

I did see renderings in Car&Driver that was a soft top but the angle of the roof was so odd it felt like a Ford Model T.

In the magazine? I was told by Lexus PR that there were no images of a roof.

Sounds like the Car and Driver rendering was photoshopped by an artist they hired, as opposed to being anything official from Lexus.

This is every bit as stunning as I'd hoped, and it looks very production-ready; no weird holographic center console or anything.

In case some hadn't seen pictures of it with the roof up.View attachment 3142 View attachment 3143
I was very intrigued as to where in Car and Driver those top-up renderings appeared. I searched both their website and their latest print issue, but didn't turn up anything. Then Infrared LC located those NetCarShow.com images you see above (which he posted in a separate thread that I merged into this one).

To be clear, Lexus only released a dozen official images of the LC Convertible Concept, each and every one of them top-down. They are the only ones to appear in the USA, Global and Japan Newsrooms, and in the Lexus Enthusiast news article. Those top-up renderings are obviously photoshopped versions of Images 07 and 08, and not official. It is unclear whether they were created by the folks at NetCarShow.com or aggregated by them and created by someone else.

Very interesting observation, I was also pondering about this as well since Lexus has never made a soft top convertible before.

Although I think a navy blue top would be pretty amazing.

This car is so desirable if they could somehow maintain the original top shape.

Also has anyone else realized that the interior metal trims and handles are now dark as opposed to the current light metallic trim?
