    No, no need to make F-performance car based on FWD (with exception of CT F) or on BOV vehicles. Lexus TX F on the other hand can make sense if it competes against monocoque SUVs and is RWD based. Of course my opinion trying to find the optimal compromise between badging and purity, market capture and exclusivity.

    If this happens before a new IS-F, I'm leaving the brand for Mercedes-AMG.

    Why not? They just need to use the TRD supercharger, but let it have the same power as when its used on the Tundra 550 HP :)

    I'm sure it makes no sense at all in a commercial sense,but totally irrational niche products do ad a welcome sense of whimsy and fun to any marque.

    I agree with everyone saying the ISF needs to come first. I wouldn't leave Lexus F for Mercedes AMG over it but for real and ISF needs to come back. If Lexus does a better job marketing the ISF and really create a powerful, sexy vehicle, then it will help the brand a lot, but I would love to see a beautiful F SUV. An RX or NX is what I thought would come first, but the LX rendering is so cool! An LXF would be awesome! I saw do it and bring back the ISF

    That would make the Middle-Eastern the HAPPIEST!!!
    Because in the Middle-East specifically the UAE people LOVES SUV cars and I see a lot of Mercedes GL63 AMG on the roads.
    Imagine if that was replaced by the Lexus LX F? that would make it the MOST seller in the UAE!! (Opinion).
    As well, this rendering is just amazing in everywhere!!

    IS F first like what everyone is saying but Lexus should put the supercharged engine as an f sport and put a 500+ hp engine in an LX F

    Yes, Lexus please bring us the LX F to competes with the likes of GL 63 (550 hp) and Range Rover supercharged V8 (550 hp)...

    Haha I am imagining an athletic off road F, instead! Crawl Control off road at 120 mph! Okay, maybe 80 mph is a bit more "realistic."
