Next up will be the oft-rumored GS F, a prototype for which was last seen a year ago. The new GS F is now expected to be launched in time for the 2016 model year and bring to the table a more powerful version of the RC F’s 5.0-liter V-8. According to Autocar, the new GS F will also feature an eight-speed automatic, a Torsen limited-slip differential and about 500 horsepower.
The British publication also reports that the RC F will eventually spawn a four-door coupe variant to appease fans of the IS F, which bowed out of the market earlier this year and may not have a direct replacement. The four-door RC F will compete against a slew of performance sedans coming onto the market and will likely be priced lower than the RC F coupe. A RC F convertible is also a possibility.
Finally, Lexus will be one of at least 25 automakers planning a world premiere for the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show this November. Autocar reports that the Lexus premiere is likely to be the long-awaited production version of the LF-LC concept, although we could also be treated with a preview of the next-generation LS flagship sedan.
Stay tuned for an update.
