"Build an underwhelming/uncompetitive _____, but blame it's lack of success on ____(external force)___," is a game Lexus likes to play quite frequently.This is the irritating thing though, they can't just build a total disappointment and then blame poor sales on shift to SUVs. This is like the garbage where they've killed the CT citing poor sales - you didn't update the thing in what, a decade? It was pathetic next to the Germans in the same segment. So no wonder the UX had vastly better sales with the up to date interior design language and exterior design cues.
If they built the LS people actually wanted, a traditional 3 box design that looked like the LF-FC with a V8, don't tell me that wouldn't have sold 5x more than what the disappointment we got is selling.
But with that said, I really do feel that the tides are turning and there is a new era starting at Lexus. I am fairly optimistic.
