    Lexus' General Manager Hints At A Second Flagship

      Another flagship vehicle could joining the Lexus LS

    Lexus is readying another flagship vehicle to sit along the LS sedan. Speaking with Reuters, Lexus General Manager Jeff Bracken said the Japanese automaker is considering a new flagship.


    "We need a flagship. It doesn't have to be a sedan," said Bracken.


    "In addition to the LS (a large sedan), there could be another flagship in our lineup. We'll define what it is in January."


    There are two vehicles that are possibly in contention. The first is the long-rumored LF-LC coupe concept, wearing the SC nameplate. The other is another SUV.

    Maybe if the LS wasn't so forgettable and boring, with the same engine it had in 2007 on the 2016 model year car, they wouldn't need another flagship.

    Maybe if Lexus stopped doing what the American auto makers did in the 80's and 90's with poorly done rebadging. You sit in a Lexus and all you see is some glorified bits on a blaw Toyota. Pathetic.

    Im still waiting for the LF-LC to come along...


    And by the time it does finally arrive, I will probably lose interest....it has been 3-4 years already with another 2 before it reaches showrooms...


    Its still a sexy car though...


    The Acura NSX has my interest currently for Japanese flagships/halo cars...



    But wait...the way this is written, it seems like the LF-LC is not a sure thing...and Im under the impression that the LF-LC is scheduled to arrive in 2017....am I missing something here?
