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.
Nonetheless, a few relevant bits can be gleaned, as TheDetroitBureau.com 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.
