Lexus’ IS line is very popular and a hot seller. The recently redesigned sedan combines futuristic, swoopy looks with typical Lexus luxury and build quality. It also has proven to be a legitimate sports sedan, besting both a BMW 335i and Cadillac ATS in independent testing. We recently reported on a possible coupe variant , and now we have a rendering of the IS C convertible update. The current IS C, while competent and classy, is a bit long in the tooth. It has been around since 2009 and, as of July 2014, hasn’t enjoyed the redesign the rest of the IS line received.
Our own Mark McNabb tested a 2014 IS 350 C F-Sport , and came away impressed with the drivetrain, luxurious interior, and power-folding hardtop. However, there is no denying the car’s age. Five years is an eternity in the automotive world, so Lexus needs to up its game and redesign
