The super-hot Lexus LFA coupe may only have a production run of 500 units, but the candle might not burn out on this stunner anytime soon. According to Automotive News, Lexus will produce an LFA roadster, previewed by the 2008 Detroit Auto Show concept car pictured above. Interestingly, the report indicates that there will likely be a one-year hiatus in between LFA coupe and roadster production, so the droptop supercar should hit the streets in mid-2014.

Automotive News also reports that Lexus' long-rumored seven-passenger crossover, dubbed 'VX', has been delayed, even after several years of study. As far as the automaker's CUVs and SUVs go, the RX will get a redesign in early 2014, using some of the new bits found in the updated Toyota Camry platform. The larger GX, which was redesigned in 2010, will not see any major changes, and the grandaddy LX will likely carry on unchanged for the foreseeable future – possibly beyond 2015.

Lexus' sedan lineup will also see some big changes over the next few years, starting with the launch of the all-new 2012 GS early next year. Following that, the ES will be redesigned and tuned and a hybrid version will finally be offered. The smaller IS will get an overhaul in late 2012, based on a chopped version of the new GS platform.

      Honestly, I prefer the looks of the coupe. However, there is something to be said about being able to hear that V10 more.

      Just like any exotic roadster, you only buy it to hear the engine sounds better. What a sound this care makes!

      These comments are funny, people either seem to think this is the most hideous thing on the face of the earth.. or the most beautiful thing on the face of the earth. Or they don't give a sh*t and just want to hear the 10 cylinders whine all day

      Maybe by 2014 those designs will cool down some. It looks like the Ferrari Mythos.

      Rag top or hard top? No exterior mirrors or rear view mirror, yeah I saw the rear view cameras, where is the display, the lil one in the center that does service as nav. audio etc??? Another incomplete AOL fluff article about the $400k Lexus drool car. Too bad Lexus road cars can't keep pace with German road cars. It is really too bad USA car makes still make such poor excuses for automobiles.

      You don't mean Lexus is considering a LF-A based 7 seat CUV, do you?
