I can c alot of those happening... BUT i think theyll have more then that comin out.<p>BUT First<p>EX350... i thought that would come out AFTER the Camry comes out? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>IS350C.... theyre goin to have a convertible AND coupe version of the IS arent they... not only convertible... and still if the convertible is goin to have the hard-top system the LF-C concept has... they still need a proper coupe.<p>IS500TMG... well i dont know about the V8 part yeah could happen... BUT TMG, its too similar to AMG... they should be able to do better then that (dont believe TMG is true)... and also u'd think the GS, LS and other models will have a "TMG" version too<p>LX600h... sounds mad... BUT im sure a petrol version will come out b4 that... maybe LX540... i heard about aa 5.4L V8 goin into it...<p>GT450... obviously based on the LF-A... BUT only a 4.5L V8... wheres the V10 or V12 thats supposed to go into the car (V10 similar to Toyotas F1 car)<p>L600... That sounds good... 6.0L V??.... BUT dont like the name L... i thought theyd keep it two letters like every other lexus...<p>OK so we dont know how reliable it is... but i like whats coming from it... and i think theyve missed some other models such as:<br>-replacement fa the SC<br>-AND what about the LF-X concept... i though they were goin to bring a production version based on it that sits above the RX and below the LX....<p>thats all i can think of atm<p>O well

December 2007 is a little late for the "LF-A"..<p>I think at the LATEST... US deliveries will happen Q1 2007.. with the cars world introduction Fall 2006 (tokyo show).<p><br>Scorpio.. the reason why it wont have a V10 is because starting in 2006, F1 cars are changing to V8 Engines... and Toyota has expressed interest in relating the "LF-A" to their F1 Car as much as possible.. dont worry, it'll still have its "500hp".

Its release in japan will coincide with the launch of the lexus brand there. People forget that the Lexus badge was born in the US.<br>It would be useless to launch a car under a new brand and expect it to sell on its own. That is why when lexus open the 150 new dealerships nationwide in Augest of this year they will have a stronger line up; not only the IS sedans but also the new gs350 (engine is said to be tuned for 350bhp, making the 430 completely redundant until the 460 comes later next year).

i see you have (next altezza) ther .. BUT none of the next lexus will be sold as Toyota ..<p>so the nest IS is not the next altezza (there is no new altezza)<br>the nest GS is not the next aristo (there is no new Aristo. the MarkX has taken its place)<p>GT450? is that a V8 or V10?
