The SC 430 wasn’t exactly a hot ticket item, however it was the only real Lexus model provided with two doorways before the model was stopped this year. That may change for that 2014 model year, as Inside Line reviews that Lexus is primed to release a coupe version from the all-new GS.
While Lexus has not formally introduced that the two-door GS is forthcoming, IL highlights that you will find lots of signs that time towards a performance coupe. For example, Lexus Boss Mark Templeton apparently mentioned he was thinking about an activity coupe within the $60,000 to $70,000 range.
Further, Lexus planning chief Karl Schlitz apparently told Automotive News earlier around the brand needed a coupe to complete its selection of sedans and utility automobiles. Definitely not a confirmation of the sleek new coupe, however the puzzle pieces seem to be uniting.
One small glitch would be that the GS sedan begins out at $46,900, that is a long way away from $60,000. The prices difference could come by means of a higher-performance F-Sport engine or possibly a far more performance-oriented hybrid.
Odds are if Lexus does give a sporty coupe to the selection, we are likely to learn about it when the la Auto Show comes for this fall. We are a lot more than okay with increased GS variants, along with a performance coupe always seems like smart to us.
