Lexus RC F is Here to Bust Some BMW M4 Balls(Jan 15, 2014)I was hesitant about the spindle grill. I traded my Ultrasonic Blue Mica IS250 F Sport for a 2014 Matador Red Mica and everyone keeps telling me how aggressive the front end is. Lexus has succeeded in bringing an identity to the brand where every model is instantly recognizable based on the front, the rear and the interior. Although the LF-A is gone, many parts of it live on in the current models.
Lexus RC F is Here to Bust Some BMW M4 Balls(Jan 15, 2014)Looks perfect just as it sits. Lexus IS stepping up their game. Toyota CEO Toyoda loves to race and we're seeing the influence as Lexus moves forward with a direction towards performance.
Lexus RC F is Here to Bust Some BMW M4 Balls(Jan 15, 2014)Just traded a 2012 IS F Sport for a 2014 and the changes to the chassis by Lexus are phenomenal. The redesigned body is super tight. I can imagine this is going to drive like an auto-cross racer. Add a V8 and it will be a beast.
Lexus Won't Build Cars for Poor People(Dec 11, 2013)Anyone who thinks a Lexus is a rebadged Toyota has never owned one. FAR from it. I've owned five and have two in my garage now. Yes, when I open my door, the plate says built by Toyota in Japan. But the build quality, materials and design are superior to a Toyota. Really.
Corvette, Camaro are Chevy's Design Future(Nov 18, 2013)Bulky and bloated? Hahaha. Then what is your opinion of a Dodge Challenger? It better be worse than this because it's a fat cow on four skinny wheels by comparison.
Lexus Officially Goes Insane With LF-NX Crossover Concept(Sep 05, 2013)Why? Because Buick is killing it with their Encore mini-crossover?
I'm of the school make a few models and make them the very best.
All of a sudden, Lexus decides they want to be followers instead of innovators. Critically, BMW X3 is a failure. Looks like a tarted up Nissan Juke.
What if the New Lexus IS Looked Like This?(Sep 05, 2013)I'm keeping my Ultrasonic Blue Mica F Sport. Beside the fact they raised the MSRP $2,000 and got rid of the hinged door pockets, it's not a better car than what I'm driving.
CarBuzz Q&A with Tanner Foust(Sep 03, 2013)There is a true cinematic application of skill applied to Top Gear UK. International travel, equitable variety of both supercars and everyday driver cars.
Top Gear US lacks the cohesiveness between the hosts, I believe, because Tanner is the only legitimate driver of the trio.
Lexus Planning New IS F Coupe(Nov 06, 2012)I have ACTUAL photos of this car, not artist renderings. It was sitting on a stand inside the Lexus tent at SEMA. It's a finished car with a full interior. Put several images on my FB page. Still calling it LF-CC on the rear plate.
Chevy Previews 2012 SEMA Lineup(Oct 24, 2012)Based on what I see here (no Camaros, Corvettes ???) I will most likely be skipping right over GM and spending my time at the more exciting Ford and Mopar offerings. They've announced amazing rollouts already. This looks like a white flag for GM.
Cadillac ELR Headed for Production(Oct 17, 2012)I don't think much will change about this car except for the wheels. This concept has been on Cadillac's website for a year already and I see few changes. Outside of the anticipated high price (I lease anyhow) this is one bad a$$ game changer for GM.
Entry Level Exotics: Ferrari California(Oct 15, 2012)Stunning. Why would anyone criticize such a beautiful car? I prefer this model because it's more realistic to drive. The body design (vaguely) resembles a Corvette or an Aston or a Jag. Love this color!
Mopar Previews SEMA Show Cars(Oct 14, 2012)I'll swing by if Tom Brady will be there.
Otherwise, GM and Ford will be getting most of my attention. And of COURSE Wheels and Tires! Hottest cars and Girls love in Wheels and Tires section @SEMA.
4 Paris 2012 Supercars(Oct 06, 2012)Wow man, Daimler is really losing it.
How much of a market IS there for one off boutique mobiles ?!?
4 Paris 2012 Supercars(Oct 06, 2012)*(plug in and use again acknowledged)
That's a whopping $3,667 per mile from full to empty.
What a totally unnecessary waste of money and technology.
The next time someone complains about the price of an LFA, bitch slap them for me!
Performance AWD: Lamborghini Murcielago(Oct 03, 2012)Drove this same color car on a road course in Vegas, and it was a screaming monster. No fancy bells and whistles to save you; just you wrestling 600HP to the tune of $300K. May get to drive the Aventador this year @ SEMA for a comparison.
Non-Italian Exotics: Lexus LFA(Sep 28, 2012)Key difference; this is luxury w raw power. Vipers have no creature comforts at all and wouldn't survive as a daily driver. That said, as a 4x Lexus owner and supporter, where DO you drive a $350K car ?!?
Lexus LF-CC Concept Debuts in Paris(Sep 28, 2012)None of these grills have made it to production because there is no bumper hence no safety feature underneath. Happened to the GS, LS, RX so it'll happen to this too.
5 Contemporary Cop Cars(Sep 27, 2012)That's fricking hilarious how everyone rushes to defend the ugliest wheels ever but shreds a supercar. These look stolen off of a 10 year old Silverado work truck. Even pure black would have made more sense. Fail.
Lexus Reveals LF-CC Concept Ahead of Paris(Sep 17, 2012)Rear end has Infiniti written all over it. I can see the LFA influence on the front from here. Now render a 4 door which is what the majority of IS buyers are driving and buying anyhow.
Lexus Reveals LF-CC Concept Ahead of Paris(Sep 17, 2012)I fricking knew it. This is why I raced out to get my hands on a 2012 Ultrasonic Blue Mica F-Sport.
BMW, MB, Audi, Cadillac already running 4 cylinder cars. Are V6s really that evil that you too have to drop an anemic 4 ?!?
Chevrolet Pays Tribute to C1 Corvette(Sep 10, 2012)I agree. John Z DeLorean likewise seldom gets little recognition for the development and bringing to market the Pontiac Firebird and its Trans Am spawn.
Nissan Reveals All-New 2013 Sentra(Sep 03, 2012)Hate Nissan in general but I see where they're going with this. The design language across Maxima, Altima and Sentra is the same like Infiniti. Lexus doing the same with LS, ES, GS sharing similar front and rear geometry.
Weekly News Roundup: August 26th - September 1st(Sep 01, 2012)Isn't Buick the most coveted American brand in China? GM will be hard to penetrate the market against. Unless the Chinese have terrible taste in cars and embrace the awkward blandness that is Lincoln / Ford.
The World's Greatest Drag Race Returns for 2012(Aug 26, 2012)I've driven the GT-R on a track vs. Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and Aston Martin. Because of the TT and 4WD, it makes you a better driver than you really are and easily passes these other cars on a road course. Must respect a GT-R for the price.
Leaked: 2013 911 Carrera 4 and 4S Photos Hit the Web(Aug 26, 2012)I respect your opinion, but I like it.
It's annoying when you have a general idea what you're looking at but not the exact model. This spells it out clearly. And being an obsessive person about symmetry, the placement of the lettering is great.
