With the teaser image of the concept car above and the announcement that Lexus will be premiering it to the world at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday, September 10, you know pretty much what we know. The Japanese luxury brand has decided to to say nothing more. Picture sleuthers have, however, suggested that it is a conceptual preview of either the RC Coupe or the hotter RC-F that will be revealed in Tokyo, or, less likely, the coming NX crossover - and that covers all the bases that we know of.

Along with that, Europeans will get to lay eyes on the GS 300h for the first time, the sport sedan powered by Lexus' 2.5L hybrid powertrain. You'll find a skosh more information in the press release below.

      This is another concept or a production version of the LF-CC. The spy shots of the RC coupe are already out, and they look nothing like this. For one, they have large, "conventional" headlights, not the little slits we see on this teaser shot. Those "slits" though, appeared on the LF-CC concept. My money is on that.

      I do not think this is the RC. Why would Lexus make another concept for a future model. The RC is to be based off the LF-CC. At least that is what Lexus has made us believe. So people have lighten the image up a little bit. When you do that, it reveals an SUV like model. Therefore, it may be the NX. Read the Lexus Enthusiast article for a better understanding of what I am trying to say. PS Someone changed my name to this "RAWRR" not me -DillonD

      That's not RC Coupe. It's clearly a concept which is prolly that little CUV they were working on.

      I don't know why all the hate with the LED "swoosh". I've seen it and personally think it's pretty cool. It's a nice and refreshing move from all of the same LED lights that are out there...and I guarantee it's not cheaper to produce since it's not incorporated into the headlight and it's a specific cut out of the front bumper.

      The separate LED treatment has really grown on me. I think it looks great and its a grear stand out.feature where all over companies put the LED strip inside the headlight. Give the cars more character. That headlight in the pix looks hot.

      I'm unsure what it is but I like the direction Lexus is headed in, I read a apanese car magazine that said the RC an the LF-CC are two different cars where as the RC will be more upscale an have more engine choices the LF-CC will be powered by a powerful 4 cylinder.
