We've been quietly hoping Lexus would make this into a real like car, a bespoke model to rival BMW's 6 Series, but in the typical Japanese way, not on German terms.
The news we were waiting for finally came today, as Lexus’ vice president-marketing Brian Smith told WardsAuto the car is indeed going to enter production.
“That was (intended as) a concept car, and I think it surprised everybody, including us, when Japan said due to overwhelming response they decided to do it. It’s a huge win,” Smith said.
It's too early to say what the engine for this car will be, but we'd point out the concept was a 500 horsepower hybrid, which we think is the way to go considering it will be a halo coupe.
