A few weeks ago, Lexus released a teaser image of its upcoming Detroit Auto Show reveal, simply calling it the "next Lexus F." Now, a new shot of the Detroit-bound car has been sent out, and while we still don't know what the new model will be called, we can tell you this: it's a coupe.

Originally, we assumed the new Lexus F model would be the successor to the IS F sedan. But now that we know it'll be a two-door, it stands to reason that this could be the performance oriented version of the 2015 RC coupe that made its debut at the Tokyo Motor Show earlier this year. Of course, Lexus is still keeping quiet on any specifics, simply stating that the company "will unleash its upcoming F model as a coupe, conceived with grit, an entirely new expression of design and uncompromising performance."

The official name of the new F model is set to be revealed in early January, likely just before its official debut in Detroit. Stay tuned for more, and scroll down to read Lexus' very brief press blast.

      And on the previous article about the rumors about this car lots of people were like "oh wow tacky add ons" or "I don't want some body kit" which I replied this obviously isn't just an F-Sport package but then again people that hate on a brand simply for hate don't even read the articles they comment on so what do I know

      Hey, I've got an idea. Why don't they focus on lightening the vehicle to improve its performance rather than adding a bunch of worthless bling and doo-dads?

      Badass. Can't wait to see its performance capabilities. I believe it will have a highly tuned V8. Everyone knows it's the RCF. I wonder what engine the ISF will have and when will we have more info on the M5 fighter GSF
