Some of the best news we've heard all summer.
The Lexus supercar will officially make its triumphant return. After the LFA's two-year production run ended in 2012, its successor has now been confirmed. Lexus Vice President Mark Templin has just announced the good news. And like the LFA, this new supercar has the full backing of Toyota President Akio Toyoda. "Akio believes that every generation deserves to have a car like an LFA, so we're building an LFA for the generation we have today," Templin stated.
At this time, we have absolutely no clue what the exact make up of this new LFA is going to be. Based on other new supercars of today, we imagine Lexus will utilize its latest hybrid or even plug-in technologies combined with a conventional engine. Styling wise, it'll likely be really something. Just look at the existing LFA as well as the brand's new styling language. This car will probably take things, both design and performance, to new levels for Lexus. No targeted launch date was announced, but it's just good to know the project is officially happening.
