Lexus Teases LF-C2 Concept Coming to LA Auto Show

Convertible likely to join expanding line-up at Japanese luxury brand.

by on Nov.12, 2014

Is the LF-C2 a convertible version of the Lexus LF-LC or a new take on the Lexus RC Coupe?

This teaser image from Lexus begs a few puns, and it’s easy to suggest that the concept coming to the Los Angeles Auto Show next week is likely to eclipse the old SC430 convertible that the Japanese maker pulled from production a few years back.

A terse press release says that, “On November 19, at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Lexus LF-C2 Concept will make its global debut. This exciting new open-air concept will be revealed at a press conference scheduled for 1:40 p.m. in the brand’s display located in the South Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center.”

Your Inside Source!

So, what are we likely to discover next week, and will it leave us howling at the moon?  Two very different possibilities emerge.


Now It’s Official: Lexus Releases LF-Lc Pics

by on Dec.21, 2011

Lexus offers up an official image of the LF-Lc concept.

Well, Lexus has made it official.  Pics of the maker’s new concept car inadvertently leaked out as Road & Track magazine got ready to release its new issue.  So the maker decided the rest of us deserved a closer look and sent over the first official shots of the Lexus LF-Lc show car, rather than the close-up teaser that the Toyota luxury division had previously released.

While we’re now able to get a good look at the 2-door 4-seater Lexus still isn’t providing any pertinent details, hoping we’ll still show up at the maker’s Detroit Auto Show news conference next month.

Stay in the Know!

Nonetheless, a few relevant bits can be gleaned, as reported earlier:

“…insiders offer hints it could be the concept version of an eventual replacement for the slow-selling Lexus SC430.

“As seen here a few specifics can be deduced from the images: the concept apparently opts for a targa top, rather than the folding hardtop of the awkward SC430.  Both vehicles appear to be roughly the same size and the new model maintains the 2-door design of the current hardtop cabrio.  But it appears to add two rear seats.  Functional?  Well, that remains to be seen.
