Look, “great things take time” and all. That’s what all of the people who take a long time to do things say, at least. So, in the time it would take some people to pay off a mortgage, Lexus made some paint. The company calls the paint “much more than simply a new choice on a colour chart.” Rock on, then, Lexus.
You know those stupid novelty signs that say things like “Mustang Parking Only” that dorks like to put in their garages? They’re harmless fun, right? Of course they are. But you know, you could make them a whole lot less harmless if you replaced handicapped spots with signs like that, in exchange for money from one…
We did it, internet! With your help, we successfully tracked down the last 12 unsold, brand-new Lexus LFAs. Here are the cars we found. Also, guess what? There are more than 12.
I’m not really one for superstitions or auspicious number sequences, but they stopped the Lexus LFA’s production in December 2012 and we learned earlier this week that there are 12 unsold ones floating around in dealerships across the U.S. Twelve, 12 and 12. This deserves some digging.
The police cruiser sidled into my rearview mirror and my hands reflexively tightened on the 2018 Lexus LC 500's leather-clad steering wheel. Shit. I was sure I hadn’t just done anything illegal. Well, pretty sure.
So, this Lexus. It’s a car. A big car. A cool car. A loud car. A V8-y car. What do you want to know about it?
I feel sorry for the Lexus RC-F. When Lexus released this oddly styled coupe in 2015, everyone immediately compared it to a BMW M4, and collectively pointed and laughed at the car for being heavier, softer, and slower than the Bavarian opposition.
After decades of secretive, painstaking research hunkered down in an underground lab, Toyota scientists in 1999 pushed the taillight to its absolute peak with their patented Altezza technology. The world has never been the same since.
In another installment of “They still make that car?” Lexus has decided to discontinue the CT200h hybrid hatchback after the 2017 model year. This is not a shocking development with cheap gas and buyers flocking to crossovers, but the CT200h was an underrated upscale hatchback.
It’s April Fool’s time again! And all the car #brands are in on it. Normally most of these are bad. But this one is good, kind of, even if it’s an unintentional send-up of Lexus drivers.
The Lexus LS 400 has garnered acclaim for being one of the most durable, maintenance-free, high-mileage-conquering luxobarges out there. These merits are largely well earned. However, what nobody seems to mention are two maintenance nightmares that can bring the car to its knees. I’m going to explain these issues and…
The Lexus GS sedan was always kind of the odd duck in the lineup. It was never as popular as the front-wheel drive Camry-based ES nor was as luxurious as the larger, flagship LS. A recent rumor suggests that the GS sedan may be discontinued. If this is true, I’m not sure people are going to be too upset about it.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
Sometimes those sleep deprived, middle-of-the-night Craigslist spelunking sessions end in the discovery of a true unicorn—something that appears to be perfect and pristine on the outside, an ideal fit for your garage and your dreams. But even if you hit on such a vehicle, it can hide dark secrets within. This was one…
Stop calling a compact luxury sports sedan that isn’t a BMW a “3 Series fighter.” There really are such things as sports sedans that aren’t from Bavaria, and the current Lexus IS is one of them. Here’s why it’s more than just an also-ran, and why its new-for-2017 turbo four-cylinder engine makes it worthy of your…
Last year at Tokyo Auto Salon, Lexus had a pretty large booth that mimicked some kind of Nordic dance club bar one might see in Oslo or Stockholm, all white and glass and steel, with flashing lights, dancers, and Lexus staffers in thin, crisp reflective suits. This year? Carbon fiber race cars. That’s it.
Yet again, race cars hold the answer. This time, it’s with an aesthetic grievance: Lexus’ creepy hourglass grilles. While impressive in their complexity, the end result on the road car looks like some kind of unsettling alien web meant for trapping possums on the road and shooting them into an alternate dimension.
