The lottery is a tax on the poor and stupid.
Sean Win Mar 31, 2012
I keep buying lotteries ! And keep dreaming ! ^____^
Shawn Sullivan Mar 31, 2012
Money ready?! You feel like setting up a small personal loan to a stranger?!
Thomas Opie Taylor Mar 31, 2012
Money ready , bring it on
Matt Piccolo Mar 31, 2012
That would b sweet if they did!!!!!!!
Matt Teschendorf Apr 01, 2012
Hey now, don't hate on the FWD 3kgt. I love mine for what it is, but yes the 3000gt VR-4 really needs to be brought back with more power and minus a bit of weight! It would be on my list of prospective cars to own for sure.
P_R_N_D Mar 31, 2012
Uhh... dude if u won that mega millions, you could probably buy Toyota Lmao
Melvin Cerrillo Mar 31, 2012
Dang. I wish I won the mega millions so I could get this car in the future
Matt Piccolo Mar 31, 2012
That's sweet that theirs an s16 in development right now... Where'd u hear that??? And yea I can't believe I forgot the s2k... Its in my top 15 and # 1 for convertibles!!!!!!!!!
Bob Jones Mar 31, 2012
Don't forget about the S2000!
rockstarTc Mar 31, 2012
I really hope they make a production model that looks just like it is, im afraid they will change it up to save some money...so beautiful
rockstarTc Mar 31, 2012
@matt i totally agree with you, japan are finally starting to bring back the great cars that made the companies. I dream for a new supra, but the 3000gt has to be awd, the fwd was a horrible car. A twin turbo Z would also be a great addition as well
Andrew Grimm Mar 31, 2012
You guys are forgetting one that is in development right now. Silvia S16 ;D
Kevin Rehbock Mar 31, 2012
Engineering by Lexus, styling by Norelco.
Matt Piccolo Mar 31, 2012
Oh yea.. I thought I was forgetting one!!! And also a new eclipse if Mitsubishi does it right... Rwd, good looking like the earlier ones... Mabye awd?? For a top I the line model
Aaron Crisp Mar 31, 2012
Hey were still missing Mitsubishi's replacement for the 3000GT VR4.. :/ I want a new twin turbo V6 GT from them to compete with the GTR.
Zaire Wilkins Mar 31, 2012
this is probly a infiniti emerge concept
Matt Piccolo Mar 31, 2012
Bring back the rotary again... All were missing is a new supra cuz we have the 370z covering for the 300zx!!! :)
Matt Piccolo Mar 31, 2012
This looks awesome... I'm loving how were getting some sweet cara outta Japan like on the 90's... Gtr is back, nsx is coming back... We got inexpensive fun to drive sports cars from Toyota and subaru... We have the mx5 still and Mazda is planning to
Kyle Anderson Mar 31, 2012
I feel like this would be rather expensive, but not GTR fighter worthy, unless they used the same engine, suspension, etc. as the GTR, which I doubt.
Timothy Hooker Mar 31, 2012
Ford dodge BMW Kia Nissan Lexus Chevy Mercedes you want I keep going
Oscar Galvan Mar 31, 2012
Joel have you seen the price of the lfa, not a gtr fighter
Rob Chen Mar 31, 2012
does that grill bother anyone else?
Jason Brown Mar 31, 2012
Which company Timothy?
Joel Hope Mar 31, 2012
Have you heard of the lfa? That's the gtr fighter
Chris Dimattia Mar 31, 2012
Come on toyota build a GTR fighter! Also, make a $45k supra that looks like this. Thank you
Timothy Hooker Mar 31, 2012
Because that's what case companies do..they Get our hopes up then watch them crash and burn at the dealership
Jason Brown Mar 31, 2012
Timothy, you must be on crack. Lay off the candy. Seriously why would they butcher a car that got so much positive feedback?
Timothy Hooker Mar 31, 2012
Even if they built it it would come out so butchered you wouldn't even recognize it
Kumar Desi Mar 31, 2012
Make the car! But I guss we will pay over $100K ?? If so I will sell me LS430
Tim Preisinger Mar 31, 2012
I'm a muscle car guy, and even I think this is pretty cool.
Emmanuel Mateo Mar 31, 2012
They need to put this thing into production like yesterday, there isn't one bad thing I can say about it

Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
That made absolutely no sense
Thomas Opie Taylor Mar 31, 2012
Demand is speaking to them NOW a n d later , hope they don't pass up deal of a life time here
P_R_N_D Mar 31, 2012
My thoughts exactly. They could even throw in a few electric motors like Acura & Infiniti are doing. That seems to be the trend these days with cars in this segment.
James E Caldwell Mar 31, 2012
Take the ft86, add some Turbos or a supercharger, put this body on it and call it a day. Don't take forever and lose huge amounts in development costs like you did with the LFA.
Ricardo Del Real Pinedo Apr 01, 2012
Looks like they used the SC300 in the design of this concept.
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
I just notice the styling towards the rear of the car and it is reeeaaally nice
Matthew Crighton Mar 31, 2012
Anyone else think those look like the v12 zagato rims?
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
I think this is a step above the LFA
P_R_N_D Mar 31, 2012
Lexus NEEDS this. There's nothing in between the IS-F and the LFA. The GS-F is a nice fit, but this is juuust right!
Richard Creed Mar 31, 2012
Great looking concept.
Terrance Parker Apr 02, 2012
It's too easy they have the platform of the gt86; put in a big engine some lux goodies and call it a day!
Thomas Opie Taylor Apr 01, 2012
Timing is everything , for this the time IS NOW this will be like the 300 was to CHRYSLER in its hay day. Still selling pretty good after all the years
Abdul Koli Sadik Koli Apr 01, 2012
The accidnt of this car will be funny,,,soo terrible
Amira Baz Apr 01, 2012
even my brither's rc car looks better than that
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
That's what they say but I seriously doubt they can pull it off and still keep the best selling points of the car.
Brandon Lidy Mar 31, 2012
Thanks for the correction there Jackson. And I thought this was the "entry level" LFA, not a step above
P_R_N_D Mar 31, 2012
Yeah sorry lol I just have a lot to say about this car. I didn't care about it when I thought it was just a concept but I'm excited to see this make it to production. This looks fantastic!
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
Dude, did you seriously just comment on every page in the article? If they keep the price up, they'll be able to keep it pretty similar and not have to worry about production prices.
P_R_N_D Mar 31, 2012
v the key word there is "try"....
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
I wish people understood the difference between the words loose and lose. Anyways, Lexus says they will try to keep it as similar as due to its popularity.
Oscar Galvan Mar 31, 2012
IF this rivals BMW it will definetly be better styling wise idk about performance though...
Brad Vanderveen Mar 31, 2012
@brandon r u serious 50k? Lol the lfa is 300k and this is as Lexus defines a step above the lfa.
Brandon Lidy Mar 31, 2012
Nice ass. Yeah, he must work out. Seriously though, those car will go through so many changes before production that it will loose its uniqueness. I'd say for about 50k or more depending on the engine used
Cody Matthews Mar 31, 2012
Or at least with the current BMW line up.
Cody Matthews Mar 31, 2012
This will catch a lot more looks than a BMW I promise you that.
rockstarTc Mar 31, 2012
@patrick If they make this car i bet that this car and sold it at a competitive price then this will outsell bmw.
Paul Lissona Mar 31, 2012
No, Patrick I feel the same way. I'd rather deal with a little more expensive maintenance etc to have BMW.
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
The sides of the car are pretty similar to the LFA, but since it's made by the same company as the LFA, that's to be expected so I don't mind it.
Byron Borggard Mar 31, 2012
I don't like it, its to similar to the lfa
Jason Brown Mar 31, 2012
Wow comparing Saturn to Lexus? Do you even know how to drive? First of all Saturn was a total failure for GM. Secondly, Lexus out sells every European luxury car brand in sales in America except last year due to the earth quake stopping production.
Brad Vanderveen Mar 31, 2012
Wasn't completed when they presented it. It was drivable but was far from finished they said...
Brad Vanderveen Mar 31, 2012
I was at the Washington auto show and they had a one hour presentation about this car. It's a hybrid. Lexus future luxury coupe. Lf-Lc the presenter said it will be a high powered hybrid but said they weren't releasing pricing or power because it...
Patrick Joseph Mar 31, 2012
Lexus make good cars. But they are so dull and plain boring that I feel indifferent about them. I'm sure I'm not the only one to feel that way. Hence, no Lexus won't ever outsell BMW.
Timothy Hooker Mar 31, 2012
He Lexus maybe beats Saturn....and thre jury its still out on that one
Cody Andree Mar 31, 2012
Lexus doesn't beat anyone. There Boring....but this would put them on the right track.
Petrolheadjack Mar 31, 2012
depends on the power.. This looks miles better.. Anyways Lexus dont rival any cars.. They beat them in every way.
Kumar Desi Mar 31, 2012
Will this rival the m6?
Timothy Hooker Apr 01, 2012
Sadly no....I rollerskate everywhere
Thibault Leroy Apr 01, 2012
@Jackson hahaha good come back XD :)
Kumar Desi Mar 31, 2012
Timothy do you even own a car? Stop trolling
Timothy Hooker Mar 31, 2012
Gimme some of that Jesus punch
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
Really? Someone with the last name "Hooker" can't make fun of someone else's name. That's pretty damn immature.
Robert Young Mar 31, 2012
Agreed in Texas. Lol. But ugly grill
Timothy Hooker Mar 31, 2012
You're supposed to enter your name first then last Michael Jackson
Timothy Hooker Mar 31, 2012
If you drive that thing in Texas you would get out. You can hear the bugs pelting your car
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
How's that being realist? That doesn't make any sense
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
Those side vents must suck in air like a vacuum cleaner!
Cody Matthews Mar 31, 2012
I think Timothy is FORDfan in disguise...
Timothy Hooker Mar 31, 2012
Ha I was the first to say that on the first pic of this when they first showed it so I own the rights
Jackson Rojas Mar 31, 2012
Why does this look like it was made on a MAC, the photo thing where everything going to the cnter
Thibault Leroy Mar 31, 2012
i knew that there was gonna be someone to call out someone who complains about someone complaining that the grill is a bug catcher
Pablo Herasme Mar 31, 2012
Imagine if it was oxygen powered and that grill was an intake.
Janak Solanki Mar 31, 2012
Beautiful car. I even love the cheese grater in the front.
Chris Dimattia Mar 31, 2012
I knew someone would complain about someone saying the grille was a bug catcher.
Logan LeMonnier Mar 31, 2012
Besides its beautiful o
Logan LeMonnier Mar 31, 2012
Gaahhhh I knew there would be one comment saying that! It's been said stop saying it!
Emil Kleijsen Apr 01, 2012
Just build it, get it? ;) 'cause the headlights look Like Nike checks? And that's their tag line? C'mon guys it's funny
Thomas Opie Taylor Mar 31, 2012
Build build build my GS400 needs a younger brother this is it
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
Dang man you must have really been laughing to have lmao'd twice.
Matt Piccolo Mar 31, 2012
No, it's a check lmao... But just make the damn thing already lmao!!!!!! It's so sexy!!!
Jackson Michael Mar 31, 2012
It's actually a swoosh, not a check
Melvin Cerrillo Mar 31, 2012
Build it. Just do it
Zaire Wilkins Mar 31, 2012

Thomas Opie Taylor Mar 31, 2012
Keep it just like this, remember the old SC 400 wasn't so popular second chance right here
Mike Lasenby Mar 31, 2012
The attention to detail is great!
balls deep Mar 31, 2012
Reminds me of something that I could shave my face with. lol This car is bad a$$!
David Pires-Ihsaan Mar 31, 2012
reminds me of a one - 77
Amira Baz Apr 01, 2012
they got the idea of this dashboard from koenigsegg
Thomas Opie Taylor Mar 31, 2012
60 to 85 I'm pretty sure
Oscar Galvan Mar 31, 2012
The only downside will prob be the price besides that wow
Mike Lasenby Mar 31, 2012
Love the gauge cluster! Can't really call it a cluster though... Way to tidy lol looks great!
Jennings Rengel Mar 31, 2012
This is the coolest looking interior I've ever seen
Janak Solanki Mar 31, 2012
This is probably what the interior of a UFO would look like.
Matt Piccolo Mar 31, 2012
This is fricken awesome
Petrolheadjack Mar 31, 2012
I dont.. I love it..
John Serely Mar 31, 2012
