Lexus Planning IS Cabrio, Lightweight IS-F

September 05, 2008

TORRANCE, CA – The higher-ups at Toyota may have decided to axe the replacement for the Lexus SC convertible. Word has it they’ve given the green light to a convertible version of the current IS sedan, according to www.autoblog.com. Of course, lopping off the doors and roof of a four-door is hardly unheard of, as that’s just what Audi did to make the A4 convertible, but while that ‘vert is set to be replaced by the A5 cabrio, Lexus is going the opposite direction.

The IS cabrio is set to come in 250 and 350 varieties, with Lexus reasoning that there’d be no market for an IS-F convertible. The same reports suggest that a lightweight IS-F sedan is on its way, again going the opposite way of the Germans as BMW just canceled the M3 CSL program.
