Not a fan, although the recent photos i've seen make the car look better than the pics in the press release. Im interested to see how this car will pan out. Its prolly more of an AMG competitor than an M competitor. Toyota has enough money to compete in any space they want. History shows that it usually takes them about 3 tries to get a product right when competing in a new space.

They def have the cash. They've already bested the 7 series with the new LS460 hybrid, which has more power, better MPG, seamless hybrid integration, and a much better interior for less money. It looks better too.

I think one of the car magazines alreadly pre-tested the IS-F and they weren't too impressed with it. So much for competing with the M badge...

I test drove an IS before going across the street to the BMW dealer to test drive an E90. The IS was cheap, thin doors, plastic cheap interior, drove like a Honda Accord. You can put an F badge, M badge, XXX badge, it is still a piece of $#!+.

Wrong...the LS460 cracks the 6 digit price barrier and doesn't have any where near the road feel or overall driving experience that the 7 offers.

Hmm...better MPG and interior...that's all I'm seeing. Handling is worse. Looks are debatable...I like the 7 more.

I think the body designer of that car should be FIRED!!!

It is a cross between an IS350 and a Viper WTF???

I think they totally missed the boat with that design.

Sure its a bit ricey but it looks better in person. I saw it at the Chicago auto show a few months back and it looks very aggressive in person. I'm sure the e90 m3 will stomp it though.
