Hey,

My friend sent me this link to this autoblog article for a Lexus IS F Evolution, don't know how much of it is fact or fiction. 300 pounds lighter, at 3 times the price... nice, haha. :p

Good find. I highly doubt, given the current state of the economy and the fact Toyota just posted their first lost, that this will come to be. Going to be interesting :cool:

300 lbs lighter..The M3 is 200 lbs lighter so imagine 300 lbs shaved off the F with same power..I'm being crazy here but under 4.0 sec 0-60?:eek:

I really hope they come thorugh with this. It shows where Lexus is at, instead of simply upping power, they work on weight shaving, handling, and stopping power. Way to go, Lexus!

"All told, Best Car estimates a weight reduction of around 300 pounds and a price upwards of $180,000, making the Lexus IS F Evolution a JDM-only affair."

What currency are they talking about here!?

That would be shooting themselves at the foot. M3 CSL did not fly because of price. Rule of thumb in marketing: You cannot charge a dollar more than a customer is willing to pay.

$180K? It better be Euro Dollar meaning converted to US Dollar will be $90K..I heard about this last year that it will be $90K or so but wasn't sure if it was gonna happen..
