HOT WIRE—Lexus has released a photo of its new sports coupe ahead of its debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Borrowing heavily from its exotic LFA, the new car—called the LF-LC Concept—looks less front-heavy, more fluid, and has s 2+2 configuration. Although Lexus is only releasing a side profile of the LF-LC at this time, the front of the car appears to carry many of the design elements of the new GS. The LF-LC sport coupe will be unveiled at the Detroit show at 1:25 p.m. Eastern time on January 9, 2012. “Crafted from a clean sheet of paper at the request of Lexus headquarters in Japan, the LF-LC blends both high technology and organic shapes to connect the driver to the machine,” says Mark Templin, Lexus group vice president and general manager. “The clean lines of the vehicle emphasize motion, creating a distinctive look for this futuristic sport coupe.” Conceived as a design exercise to explore future designs, Lexus says the LF-LC was created at the company’s Calty design studio in Newport Beach, Calif.
