Lexus was supposed to unveil the 2021 Lexus IS on June 9, but now those plans have been postponed. Lexus released a statement, where it stated “Lexus has respectfully postponed the world premiere of the new IS, which was originally scheduled for June 9. Revised timing will be announced soon.”
Lexus didn’t reveal any other details about why the debut of the new IS has been postponed. So for now we just have the single teaser photo of the 2021 IS, which gives us a preview of its full-width taillights.
We don’t know that much about the new IS, but there have been reports that it will be based on the existing platform and an IS 500 might be introduced with a 5.0-liter V8. Another report also claims that the IS 500 will get the same twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 as the LS 500, so we’ll have to wait and see which report is accurate.
