Lexus IS Convertible to be Released Next Year and a New Lighter IS-F is in the Works

AutoTelegraaf is claiming that Lexus is going to release a droptop version of the IS next year.

The IS convertible will feature a folding hardtop like the soon to be dead SC. It will be dubbed the IS250 C and IS350 C. Those of you that were hoping for an “F” version of the new convertible will be disappointed to hear that an IS-F convertible is not in the works since Lexus doesn’t feel like it makes much business sense.

But IS-F fans can rejoice that Lexus is working on a new lighter version of the IS-F sedan. The new lightweight IS-F is currently undergoing testing. On a sadder note, Lexus is not going to release a GS-F sedan, which would have competed with the M5.
