    cliffs notes - The Lexus LF-C concept will preview the brands new, "more passionate" design direction. Supposed to show a lot of styling cues of the upcoming second generation IS300

    Lexus has yet another influential design concept up its sleeve: the LF-C. The sporty two-door coupé will be shown at this week’s New York show and neatly reflects the Japanese brand’s ‘new, more passionate design direction’.

    Powered by a high-output V8, the concept’s design emphasis is as much on luxury as performance. And judging by the rapid translation of the LF-S Tokyo concept into the production GS, it could hint at a new look for the marque’s next SC sports coupé.

    Insiders admit the LF-C – which stands for Lexus Future Coupé – could prove equally prophetic, offering a faithful guide as to what the next- generation SC will look like. The current car is due for replacement in 2007.

    I thought that car manufactures had finally got over the horrid "hard-edged" styling of the late 90's/Early 00's....

    :mad:

    I miss the smooth styling of the mid 90's...

    Supra
    RX-7
    300ZX
    SN95 Mustang
    2G Eclipse
    4th Gen Prelude
    MR2
    LT1 Powered F-bodys


    All of which are either gone of were replaced with uglier versions. The RX-8 is the only half-decent looking sports car that has come out in the last 10 years.. :sad2:

    Does anyone else see similarities between the rear end of that car and the direction BMW is heading in its concept cars or is it just me? Something about the curves of the trunk and flare of the rear wheel wells reminds me of BMW.

    at a quick glance it looks like it has a lot of 350Z styling in it....

    not all, I think it's gorgeous... it seems to be a love / hate design... and those are usually the best kind ;)
