As you may know already Lexus will introduce the all-new LF-CC Concept later this week at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and all the media said that the car previews the new IS. Well, it appears that things are not quite like this, as the car turns out to be a coupe version of the GS sedan.
Still, we don’t say that the media reports are wrong, as the new IS will carry the new spindle grille when it will make its debut next year in March, at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
Regarding the GS coupe, Lexus will build such a car as Toyota president Akio Toyoda wants to revitalize the Toyota and Lexus brands with sportier cars. Everything began with the Lexus LFA supercar, but we all know that the volume was limited.
Toyota will also revive the Supra and it will develop it with Bmw. Regarding the LF-CC, this concept uses a the 2.5-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine coupled with the high-output electric motor found in the new ES 300h Hybrid. The system will deliver a total output of 200 hp and the power will be delivered to the rear wheels.
