IS-F Production Limited to 1,000

Posted Image

We have some bad news for all Lexus fans. Subscribers to the AutoWeek magazine were probably disappointed to read a short blurb on the Lexus IS-F in the January 22, 2007 issue where the magazine reported that Toyota will be building only 1,000 Lexus IS-F sedans for the United States. Look at the bright side, you guys will be the lucky few to have the car and show it off to your fellow BMW M3 drivers.

Honestly, it's probably so they only have 1,000 recalls.

Is the IS-F that awesome that it only warrants one-thousand units?

BMW's M-Series models and Mercedes' AMG are much more impressive.

To me, BMW holds much more cachet than Lexus. If someone told me they had one of only 1,000 BMW's, I'd be impressed. But if someone told me they had one of 1,000 Lexus'... I'd probably laugh.

It's a great way for the Toyota PR department to say:

1. The IS-F is sold out for the year.

2. The IS-F is the most desirable <longest waiting list> premium sport sedan on the market.

easier to track the purchasers and give them kid glove treatment and claim

3. Highest owner/driver satisfaction in the premium sport sedan market.

Good, then there's very little chance I'll ever see one of these monstrosities running around on the street. Who cares what PR Lexus can report if there aren't any for sale.

V-Series production is roughly 10% of total production for the vehicles that have a V-Series model. The CTS-V was originally projected at 5k/units a year. I think the CTS does about 60k vehicles/year now, though.

Wrong.

The limited production numbers Autoweek reported pertain to the LF-A, not the IS-F.

Look for them to issue a correction adressing this in their next issue.

And thats the problem with alphanumerics. One can easily confuse them and next thing you know, misinformation spreads.

So the LISF-AF will only sell 1,000 per year? Or was it the IS-A? Or the LS-F? Or uhh... Prius-F? Ah who cares, just get an M5.

Eck. No stick, no deal. That's the way I see it.

At the very least, offer a DSG-style system, not a conventional automatic.
