2017 Lexus LF-LC: A 500-hp (and Less Expensive) Follow-Up to the LFA

WHAT IT IS: A two-plus-two sports coupe concept from Toyota's California design studio that could be Lexus's answer to the Aston Martin DB9 if, of course, it reaches production. More expensive and more driver-oriented than the defunct SC430 convertible, this "poor man's LFA" (it'll cost about half as much) will squeeze at least 500 horsepower from its hybrid powertrain.

WHY IT MATTERS: With the LFA out of the picture, the LF-LC would become the brand's standard-bearer—and a more visible one at that.

PLATFORM: Unknown. A new front-engine, rear-drive architecture or a heavily revised Lexus GS platform are logical possibilities.

POWERTRAIN: A gasoline-electric hybrid with a V-8 engine and at least 500 horsepower.

COMPETITION: Aston Martin DB9, Bentley Continental GT, Ferrari California, Mercedes-Benz S-class coupe, Porsche 911 Turbo, Rolls-Royce Wraith.

WHAT MIGHT GO WRONG: Unveiled as a concept at last year's Detroit show, the LF-LC moved toward production after enthusiastic receptions at dealer meetings. That green light can swiftly turn red, though, for a host of political and economic reasons.

ESTIMATED ARRIVAL AND PRICE: At the earliest, in 2016 as a 2017 model with a price just below $200,000.

Every day a little hard, you will from closer to the dream, one day you will realize your dream
