Is the Lexus IS F Being Discontinued?

by krew on March 11th,

In his review of the 2013 Lexus IS F. Healey of USA Today claims the high-performance sedan will be

The redesigned 2014 Lexus IS that’s going on sale summer will have variants, but no F high-performance version. The is so truly, lovably, enjoyably that it seems quite odd for a seeking a sportier image — it swears it’ll earn its products rather than its — to discontinue it.

But as a consolation prize, Lexus it’ll keep the 2013 IS F on through year’s end.

the context and the lack of an official there’s a few different ways to at this information:

Healey be unaware that most variants (like the IS F or BMW M3) are released a years after the standard

It could be a guess by Healey, the thought that the IS F SPORT replace the IS F in the lineup.

A Lexus told Healey the IS F will be cancelled.

The first possibility unlikely when Healey references the unavailability of the BMW M3 in his article — leaves a guessing game the second third options.

For the of argument, let’s jump to the possibility that there not be a new super-sedan based on the third-generation IS — why Lexus cancel its most model when performance is a major focus for the brand?


It could be for a simple reason — than a high-performance sedan . might prefer to center resources on a high-performance coupe .

these facts — a production based on the LF-CC as been all but by the president of Lexus International, has already trademarked RC RC F as the nameplate of the new and even the chief engineer was when answering a recent about the IS F:

“Well, IS F, so many people very strong interest in IS F, and all ask the same question [when a new is coming],” mused Furuyama-san.

the time being, our plan is to the current model for a while. As to we are going to do next, I’m not in a position of

“All I can say is we’re thinking hard about what we [do]…”

This leads to a question — even if this ends up being false, model would most choose if there was an IS F RC F in the Lexus
