Lexus IS 500


It looks like Lexus might drop the future 5.0 Liter V8 in the sedan version of the IS as well as the upcoming coupe.
At least that’s what this illustration suggests…

  1. That is one sexy car … Lexus is sure striving to tear-away diehard Mercedes fans like myself. Watch out! The Japanese are taking over!

  2. The entry lux segment is going to become very interesting in a few years.
    This proposed car will be competing head-on with the likes of Audi, BMW, Mercedes, and the next Caddy CTS-V which is also rumoured to be getting 500hpr and will be out by 2008. It’s unfortunate that it’s so boring to look at. In this segment, looks are everything. If Lexus wants to be taken seriously, the designers are going to have to show a little more of their artistic side.

  3. time n time again, honda and toyota products get beat up for the appearance of their cars, could you guys shut the heck up,
    look at the bigger picture, the total package, the looks sure aren’t excitingly hot stuff, but there nice unoffensive clean handsome lines and curves, reliability and safety and execution of interiors, so give it a rest will ya’, haha, their progressively stepping in the speed and performance arena, so beware

  4. What is so sexy about this car?
    All I see is an IS350 that is injected with some steroid, nothing more. I would ratter save my final judgements when I see the real thing, but for some one to say “That is one sexy car” must be new to automobile.

  5. At first glance, this looks a bit like a stretched Mazda 3. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. I mean, Toyota had to copy “excitement” from somebody.

    And I disagree about Toyota vehicles being soulless. They have souls, they’re just twisted. 🙂
