Lexus is gearing up to release a new lineup of F Sport models, since on Monday it released a teaser of an engine cover of a new F Sport model. With the teaser, Lexus said “A new era of F Sport performance vehicles is coming”.
What exactly could they be? Earlier this month it was reported that Lexus is working on new IS F, LS F, LC F models, but this teaser shows an “F Sport” badge instead of the an “F” badge like the RC F. This means that the teaser we see here isn’t for a full blown F model and instead will be a more tame model.
Could this be a teaser of an IS 500? There have been reports that Lexus is going to put its 5.0-liter V8 in the IS, but it wouldn’t be an actual IS F and instead it would be badged as the IS 500. If that’s the case, we can also expect it to get some suspension upgrades as well.
Lexus hasn’t announced when the new F Sport models will debut, so stay tuned.
