Lexus is teasing a tiny part of their all-new Lexus F. According to the press release, this Lexus F model is an all-new, built up from the asphalt, engineered from scratch, bold and gritty machine. “Bold and gritty?” The only Lexus vehicle I can think of that could be called “gritty” was the last IS-F.
That’s a bold statement from Lexus if this new Lexus F model is anything like that. We’ll know soon enough. Lexus says their new Lexus F model will debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
- “All-New Performance Model Engineered From Scratch
- Advanced Expression of Design and Performance – Not Bolted On, But Engineered Within
- Lexus Introduces #AsphaltUp to Complement Uncompromising Design Process
Designed from the asphalt up, to strike at the heart, the newest Lexus F model will debut at the January 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Engineered from scratch, one performance layer at a time, the newest F model promises a bold, gritty, experience synonymous with the famed Lexus F heritage.” – – Lexus Media
From what I’ve seen, this next Lexus F model will be a coupe that is some what based on the IS platform, but there could be components from the FT-86/FR-S/BRZ underneath. I wish I had more to go on – but more information will be leaked in the next thee to six weeks.
