Spied! Lexus IS-F Coupe Prototype
After first speculating that it could be a possible production version of the Lexus LF-LC concept car that debuted at last year's Detroit Auto Show, we've determined that our latest spy shots are of a next-generation Lexus IS-F Coupe. Spotted testing in Germany, it's the interior shots that give away this this Lexus Coupe prototype as definitely part of the IS family. There are differences in the center console, mainly between the gear shift and center stack, but this could be due to proportional changes. Although the design deviates from the IS sedan quite a bit, it isn't drastic enough of a change to believe it will be the LF-LC. Taking a look at one specific photo, the Coup's hood is raised, showing off a see-through slit where the hood scoop is, confirming that it is functional and not just cosmetic. Look through the rest of the photos and see if you agree: Is this the future Lexus IS-F Coupe?
