More often than not, a lot of people get caught up in the snazziness of concept cars, especially when automakers unveil them to a lot of pomp and circumstance. But as is the case with a lot of these concepts, people begin to forget about them as soon as the show ends and the lights are turned off.
Apparently though, that’s not the case for the Lexus LF-LC Concept.
We first saw the concept a few months ago at the 2012 NAIAS, where it proceeded to garner tremendous praise and support, even bagging the prestigious EyesOn award given to the best car in Detroit. The LF-LC made such an impression to the public that there’s actually a clamoring for Lexus to build a production model of the car.
“This is just a concept at this point," said Yoshi Inaba, president and COO of Toyota Motor North America. "But judging from the fantastic reception it received at the recent Detroit auto show, people want us to build it".
Now, this isn’t the first time that people have voiced their opinion on building a production model of a concept car. But this case is unique in the sense that Lexus seems to be paying attention to all the positive feedback and if the reactions remain strong - or even get stronger - there’s a fair chance that the Japanese automaker may concede to the growing demand and be convinced to build it in the future.
