unless i missed the thread or post, i havent seen many ppl talking about the new lexus is f....ive been seeing commrcials for it, and the blue one they use looks fucking amazing...416hp v8 0-60 4.7sec....think it will give the new m3 a scare? i have to work VERY early, ill look more into it tomorrow
discuss, and please....dont be biased
A morning of awkwardness is better than a night of loneliness
I think several people will go for it. It has an eight-speed automatic that is supposed to shift very well. It will have the luxury of an AMG, but with a lower price tag. They will take buyers away from the BMW, MB, and audi, since it is the newest thing and many of these buyers are mostly looking for the status symbol/luxury of it.
I really like the looks of the new IS (don't dig the weird quad-pipe exhaust in the IS-F, though), and trust Toyota can do a decent job with the suspension.
I wish I could say more, but I haven't had teh chance to drive one of these.
I think that performance-wise, BMW M is confident in their work. However, in terms of market share, etc., it hurts them every time a car with more power, more luxury, etc., enters the arena.
I really like Toyota as a company. I hope this goes well for them.
yeah its cute...one huge problem...its made by lexus...so it will be comfy, and go straight fast...but never do anything "great"..i mean look at the supra...power house...but never was all that exceptionally great in the turns...
i shall wait to see lap times...and maybe at that time i shall stand corrected...but for now...i will stick with my bavarian whores

I'm sure it's a great car, but I'm not so sure I'd buy it if I could afford it.
Something about Infinity and Lexus making fast(er) cars bothers me. I think it's the overall feel of the cars, I don't feel too "safe" in them.
If I were going for luxury and power combined in a smaller car, I think I'd go with a c63 AMG.
C63 AMG FTFW just the Fing raw power that car has is amazing! they went threw the tires in 90 miles! just needs better tires.... something that would hook up better... C63 AMG with super soft racing slicks FTGDMFW!
In my book it's
(This is the order out of THESE cars... )
