Looks very Supra-ish from what I see. Nice wide rear fenders, long nose, and a short tail.
TY,What he v said;
Please give us interesting, rwd, sporting cars rather than the typical fare you have been providing us since the demise of the MKIV Supra in the U.S.

Dear Friends at SFOC
In response to your request, Toyota has delivered the LFA. What's that you say? It's too expensive; not fast enough; looks like a Celica; took too long to come to market; production is too limited.
Okay, I understand. To make up for the LFA, I give you the FR-S, the anti-LFA!! Argh, some of you say it's too cheap; it's not exclusive enough; it's called a Scion... don't want to be associated with Scion owners. It's too expensive; $25K is far too much for this car; doesn't have enough power; interior is cheap looking; the BRZ is MUCH better looking; the BRZ interior is MUCH higher quality; $22K is okay; $24K is far too expensive. No turbo, no care. It's not a straightline monster. It's too slow. The car is fugly. Wheels are fugly.
Okay, okay, I really get it this time. We've been working on this new rwd, sports coupe concept. We're calling it the LF-LC for now. We're REALLY excited about the potential of this concept. I hope you guys like it. Even though my car guys inside the company are working hard to deliver the types of cars SFOC enthusiats say they want, I must admit they are a bit disappointed in the reaction to their efforts so far. Hopefully, that will change over time as the SFOC troopers get a chance to experience some of these vehicles.

:lol:How awesome is it that we can actually say that now? How spoiled are we, and I love it.
High HP is expected from consumers just like watching HD TV.

While the current SC is scheduled to go out of production in July of this year, the new SC coupe will resurface powered by a 5.0-liter V-8 hybrid system that drives the rear wheels. Set to lock horns with the Mercedes SL, the new luxury two-door is also expected to employ the GS’s rear-wheel torque split unit.

Originally, Lexus's plan was to develop a new SC based on the LF-A, but softened-up a bit for the colostomy-bag crowd at which the current model is targeted. However, sales of the so-ugly-it-hurts $67,120 hardtop convertible dropped 40% during the first half of 2008, necessitating a total rethink. We guess the market for a 288 HP 16-mpg city, non-performance luxury convertible isn't as big as was once thought.
