Through the Tired Eyes of Faith

Lexus sport-coupe concept slips out


Lexus had given us the heads-up that it was bringing a sports-coupe concept to the Detroit auto show. A teaser photo was released, but a full reveal was supposed to wait until the show in January.

That plan is toast, courtesy of the Internet. Road & Track magazine touted its next issue with a video on YouTube–since pulled–that revealed the Lexus LF-LC. Another photo of the car has shown up on the Web site of the U.K.’s Car magazine.

The LF-LC is another salvo in Lexus’s bid to boost the excitement level of its styling. The grille builds upon the nose that debuted on the LF-Gh concept that previewed the redesigned Lexus GS sedan. And the coupe styling makes us believe that Lexus is thinking that it might be possible to release a successor to the now-departed SC coupe, which was based on the platform used for the LS sedan.
