Although we've heard the rumors
before, and it still seems like a no-brainer, Lexus
has remained mum on the introduction of an IS coupe. With its assault on everything held dear to the Bimmer and Merc people, it's simply a matter of time before Lexus takes aim at the 3-series and C-classes that have remained largely unchallenged in the sports coupe market.
The most recent
rumor comes via Nihon Car
, who procured the above scan from the Japanese mag Car-Top
. Granted, the photochopped image above is simply wishful thinking (that rear window looks a bit awkward), but a hardtop convertible version of the IS would be right at home in Lexus dealerships and in the garages of BMW
refugees. But until we start seeing spy shots
, we'll be taking that grain of salt, thank you very much.
