2008 420hp Lexus IS Coupe

"Lexus is rumored to add a performance model to the IS lineup with a coupe body style and sufficient enough performance to challenge the E90 BMW M3. The new 2006 IS 250 and IS 350 sport sedans are already highly appreciated on the US market and for the next NAIAS Detroit show Lexus is expected to showcase a production-close prototype of the future IS Coupe, due to hit the showrooms in 2008."

Pipe dream, but I hope they spank BMW and force them to go back to the raw M-think of yesteryear - shed lots of pounds, shed all the video game gadgets and electronic crap, and build a REAL performance car again.

Would consider it if it had anywhere near the ride and handling necessary to compete in the segment. The current IS coupes do not.

The current IS coupes are secretary cars.

There currently is no such thing as an IS coupe.

And your average sercetary is not driving a Lexus of any sort, unless they're the 3rd owner, or its a perk from the boss as a result of a Monica Lewinski situation going on.
