I've always liked the IS, my second favorite japanese coupe behind the G37, I've always wanted them to make it in a two door....ughhh, but not if meant it had to look like this. This thing looks played out before it has even come out. Looks like something from 2000.

The back looks even worse. Because it's a hard top convertible they've had to enlarge the boot area and misplace the rear lights. Such a shame really.

It's a production concept, so it's pretty much what the car will look like. smh

Here are some more shots with the Lexus's party piece folding roof....











And the full back



If Lexus wanted to do a hardtop convertible I'd much rather they take the SC430 and make it into a baby Roadster based on the LF-A Concept.
