Lexus has already unveiled the base 2015 RC coupe and the fire-breathing RC F, but for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, it plans to unveil a model to fill the gap between the two with the RC 350 F Sport. Lexus markets an F Sport version of everything from the IS sedan to the RX crossover, and like those models the RC 350 F Sport will feature minor changes intended to enhance the driving experience and appearance of the base car.

Upgrades will likely include stiffer suspension, a sportier wheel-and-tire combination, and more aggressive styling. Expect the 3.5-liter V-6's power output of 314 horsepower to remain unchanged.

When the 2015 RC goes on sale this summer, it will also be available as an RC 300h hybrid with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, electric motor, and CVT. However, that model apparently isn't slated for the F Sport treatment just yet.

Drivers looking for a bona fide performance car should probably skip to the RC F, which features a 5.0-liter V-8 tuned to deliver in excess of 450 hp and 383 b-ft of torque. Other highlights include an active rear spoiler and torque-vectoring rear differential.

The 2015 Lexus RC 350 F Sport will be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show March 4, alongside the RC F GT3 concept, which signals Lexus' intention to enter European sports-car racing; it's already built the RC F GT500 for the Japan Super GT series.
