Lexus sedans will be refreshed in 2013: LF-A Roadster coming in 2014

This year has been a little lackluster for Lexus in terms of beating our their competition, but the luxury end of Toyota is getting back on track for what it says will be a couple of exciting years. With all its latest innovations, Lexus is planning a few big things to battle it out against the likes of BMW and Mercedes. This includes a full refresh of its luxury sedans, as well as a kick-the-competition-in-the-ass LF-A Roadster.

The passenger-car lineup will be made over by the spring of 2013, as the GS , ES , IS , and LS sedans will all be either redesigned or re-engineered. However, the biggest gun in the arsenal will be the LF-A supercar . The 500 units for the current LF-A coupe will be finished by 2013, then a roadster version will be unveiled in 2014. This model was actually previewed by the LF-A Roadster concept unveiled in 2008, but the production version will feature the company’s latest design language. Lexus hasn’t said anything about the more powerful version of their LF-A supercar rumored a while ago, but we hope that will be their secret weapon somewhere down the line.

In addition to the sedan redo and the drop top LF-A, Lexus also has plans for the future GS-F performance edition and the LS . The company has said that the high-performance version will not feature a conventional V8 engine, but a hybrid drivetrain. The LS will also be redesigned in 2013 - it will get weight-saving technology using premium materials and a new, more economical engine.

I hope that 2014 is the final year for exposing this vehicle. Anyway, just like them, I also feel very excited on this one. I just only hope that this one is not a hybrid vehicle.

This convertible sedan that will be refreshed on 2013 is really interesting. If it’s really the official image of their car, well I can say that it is such an impressive one.

HAHA! Poor Lexus. I thought it will be a tough competition between Lexus and Toyota. By the way, It is a good thing that they are going to refresh their Sedans. Hopefully, they can come back in production.

Well, it’s not the official image for it was the LF-A roadster. According to the rumor, Toyota will be using a hybrid drivetrain on the vehicle. I already dropped my hope seeing a powerful performance for this car. An economical engine and premium material for this production is quite a pretty nice deal.

Is that the official image of the redesigned Lexus sedan? I do hope that the redo version of the car can beat up the elegant and luxurious styling of BMW and Mercedes vehicles. The emphasis for a more economical engine and a weight-saving technology is fair enough.
