Lexus LF-LC super coupe concept as production model still indecisive


If you are still wondering if Lexus is ever going to make a production version of the new Lexus LF-LC super coupe concept, you will have to wait a little longer because Lexus is still indecisive about it.

Yes, we’ve heard that Lexus was going to build a production version of the Lexus LF-LC super coupe concept after receiving positive reception from its debut early this year at the Detroit Auto Show. But to build a supercar of this caliber (very expensive), Lexus is hesitating on its decision. The gamble is high, especially a new player like the Lexus LF-LC supercar, and usually exotic sports cars don’t sell too many at the beginning to cover the initial costs of research and production.

“A decision has not been taken,” he said (Karl Schlicht). “But we’re now up to a 50 percent chance from a zero percent one. Every top Toyota Motor Company manager is aware of the great reception it has received and now we’re talking about how we can do it and fit it into the product plan.”

At this point, there is a 50/50 chance that the Lexus LF-LC production model will hit dealers in the near future, according to Karl Schlicht who is head of Lexus product planning. Lets hope that its look, 2+2 coupe configuration, and positive feedback help convince the executive board to send the Lexus LF-LC hybrid super coupe to the production stage.
