The Lexus IS-F sports sedan (competitor for the BMW M3, Mercedes C63 AMG and Audi RS4) is not the only attempt from Lexus to enter the sports-car market. In the future, , the "F" will denote Lexus performance tuning. Other models destined for the treatment include the GS and, possibly, the full-size LS limo.

Lexus will also add a new model below the IS, intended as an entry-level sedan or hatch to compete against the BMW 1 Series or Audi A3.

The LF-A supercar will go into production — possibly in 2011 — although it might be built only in left-hand drive.

In 2009 Lexus will unveil the next-generation RX crossover SUV, following a taster concept at the 2007 Tokyo motor show. Also, starting next year a hybrid powertrain will soon be available on every model and Lexus plans to show a pure hybrid concept at next year’s Detroit show. This will be a kind of Lexus "Prius" although it’s not yet confirmed for production.
