IS350 F-Sport shows Lexus has lots of life

The Lexus LF-LC concept car should wow Detroit Auto Show

Lexus is really trying to pull its designs into this century. The new GS is a great start. It incorporates a little of the LFA’s super car looks. Is that enough? Maybe not, but this LF-LC Hybrid concept might do the trick. This may be the design language needed for all Lexi to come. Heck,
