Lexus LF-CC Concept will become a reality by 2015

Article by Christian A., on January 14, 2013

There will be a showroom model of the Lexus LF-CC Coupé by 2015. This coupé had debuted last September at the Paris show. Autocar said that the project already has a senior Lexus engineer assigned to it. Project engineering will begin in earnest this month. According to a Lexus source, the company hoped to create an “exciting and emotional” car that would reflect Lexus’s the image that it hopes to get in the future as a ‘sporting’ brand.

It’s expected that the new model will be available in both cabrio and fixed-head versions. It will be based on the same rear-drive platform as the new IS and GS models. It’s likely to use the shorter wheelbase of the IS but with the wider tracks of the GS. It will probably be styled close to that of the LF-CC concept car’s.

The concept’s interior will be carried over. It will also be used in the new IS. The production version would be a hybrid and will probably be powered by a modified version of the GS350h’s drivetrain, which has an output of 300bhp.

According to source inside Lexus, the company hoped to position the new model into the slot that opened when the old SC coupé-convertible was discontinued in 2010. The first SC coupé from Lexus, a fixed-head model, had its launch in 1991.
