cfrp I'm not sure how that 2.0T will fair against the competition.

This could be a cheap low priced vehicle if that is true.

Cologero where does the 2.0t come from? I never knew toyota and lexus had a two liter turbo with a turbocharger. well at least not in the current lines of vehicles they offer.

It's what you get for going with such a daring look. For all we know the RC could just be a coupe version of the IS350.
By the looks of the RC it is just much a new IS but in coupe form.

cfrp 2.0T?

What does Lexus/Toyota have access to that is as 2.0T that is powerful enough... hmmm

MPWR I heard the basemodel Lexus RC will have a 2.0T engine, probably the same engine as the BRZ/FRS but with a turbo?

it would make for a great rival to the 428.

Beemer-Bammer Let's just say there will be a fight. Depending on the Lexus Rc's performance we can then see how good of a fight it will be.

Not a bad looking car though. Not that hard to just change things up to two doors from four. And it took a while.

M4S I don't know man, The Lexus RC looks pretty good to me. It looks super aggressive but in some ways Lexus needed to bring back some coupes to prep up the performance line again. It's been a while since I have seen a coupe from them.

Marachi Another name change?! Wow everyone is jumping on the whole name change game. Doesn't matter to me how Lexus does I have never been interested in their designs much. Bmw kills them by performance anyways.

cfrp Lexus has tried for long to eat away at BMWs market. Does it work? Hmmmm..

I'd say Lexus should be watched by BMW but I don't think BMW needs to worry.

All previous attempts by Lexus haven't been so successful in terms of a performance standpoint.

Sales on the other hand? I do think some BMW owners have left to go to Lexus but I don't think enough to make BMW suffer any bit.

I am very interested to see what the new RC is going to be like. Even the new IS-F should be very interesting.
