Lexus LF-LC Concept Now Under Consideration For Production

Autocar is reporting that Lexus may be mulling a production version of the company's LF-LC Concept. The car got a universally positive reception at its unveilling at the Detroit Auto Show, but Karl Schlicht, head of Lexus product planning gave the vehicle a 50-50 shot at hitting dealers sometime in the future.
Back in January, Toyota made it very clear the LF-LC was strictly a concept. As you may recall, the vehicle is a 2+2 coupe with a hybrid drivetrain and a low-slung presence.
Schlicht says that the vehicle would never have been considered for production if it had merely been submitted as a design proposal. But now there's positive reviews of the physical concept. So the company's decision makers will have to give the LF-LC a second look.
It would be a design crime if this concept were not made real. Though, the chances of that happening is probably pretty slim. Italian designer Adriana Raeli made this concept really interesting. And we want it even though we're probably never going to be able to afford it. Read more
