The current Lexus IS line-up includes a sedan and a convertible model. But the future will look a little bit different. Lexus will unveil s new generation IS in 2012, but next to the usual models, the Japanese company will also offer a coupe version. This will compete with models like Mercedes-Benz C-Class coupe and the BMW 3-Series Coupe. The coupe version will arrive a year after the new generation will make its official debut. An F version will be also offered.
So, if we’ll get a coupe version, most likely the F version will feature the same 5.0 liter V8 engine as the IS-F sedan. This means a total of 402 HP at 7000rpm and 500Nm of torque at 5200rpm. That sounds more like a sports car, right? Top speed will most likely go up to 170 mph.
However, until we’ll get a new IS, Lexus will bring a new redesign version for the GS sometime next year.
