Lexus desperately wants out of the stodgy luxury perception that has started to surround its image.
Things started to change with the hugely expensive and ultra-fast LFA supercar, then came some new design elements and sportier performance characteristics. Now, with production of the LFA ended, a new Lexus king is poised to sit atop the throne. It won’t be as expensive, or as fast, but that just means it’ll be more accessible and more will be made.
That, my friends, will be a very good thing.
