Autoblog is reporting that Lexus has not one, however two automobiles within the works to interchange the supercar LFA.
And one is, in fact, an EV.
Ed. be aware — We apologize for the dearth of content material in the present day, however at the very least two of us needed to take care of off-line emergencies of the minor type. Everyone seems to be O.Ok., nobody is sick or something like that, however two of us have been pried away from our desks for giant chunks of the day. We’ll be again full blast Monday.
Based on stories, the LFA, which hasn’t been in manufacturing since 2012, shall be changed in 2025, first by a automotive utilizing a hybrid powertrain that features a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8. This automotive will experience on the identical TGNA-L platform that underpins the LC and LS.
As much as 700 horsepower is a risk.
Though the LFA’s manufacturing run ended a decade in the past, some fundamental Web looking out suggests Lexus bought models as not too long ago as 2020 and one unit might stay unsold as of this second. It’s unclear if that’s true, nevertheless.
The EV will comply with however in all probability not till 2030. Efficiency specs are clearly speculative at the moment, however a 0-60 time of beneath 2 seconds and a spread of 430 miles are cited as prospects by AB.
Toyota may additionally construct a GR GT3 supercar to function its personal flagship mannequin, though it’s doable that any GR GT3 shall be for racing solely.
This creator has at all times discovered the LFA attractive — although I’ve not pushed one — and I’m blissful to see even the comparatively buttoned-down Lexus model staying within the unobtanium super-car recreation.
