2013 Lexus IS F

Sometimes fortune really smiles on even shiftless car-reviewing Dutchmen like myself, I must admit. I had come into Austin, TX the week before I was supposed to meet up with the good people at Lexus, who had graciously invited me to drive the 2014 IS. I flew in early because Austin is a pretty good place to eat, as well as being a place that my wife doesn't live. Let me say t

Watch a 2011 Lexus IS-F be unceremoniously crushed

Filed under the old Batman adage, "Crime Doesn't Pay," here we have a Lexus IS-F being sacrificed for the sins of its owner.

Lexus brings IS F Circuit Club Sports Concept to TAS

The Lexus IS F is a curious car. 416 bristling horsepower, one of the world's sweetest-sounding engines and an 8-speed flappy-paddle 'box that shifts faster than you blink are all excellent.
