Where did you hear that?? I just bought one last week. The reason they do not sell very well here is because even people who live here and know we only get 5-10 days of bad roads per year are afraid of buying a RWD car. Infiniti always had the same issue with the M45s until they introduced an AWD in 2008.How is the IS F selling? Not many were sold in Colorado, but it's sold out. I understand it's going to be available special order only, at one of the Lexus dealers here.
Before I bought my IS-F, I was told that another dealer was expecting one in. They are around; you just need to be patient.
For what it's worth, after a week of ownership, I have to say I enjoy the suspension (love feeling the roads), don't need the backseat but appreciate this not being a 2-door for insurance purposes, and have not noticed any "awkward" appearances from any angles (but that one is highly subjective; if you don't like the way the car looks, that's your prerogative).
Hopefully the Lexus dealerships here will not disappoint me (so far so good) -- I am sure they won't because I have two other options all just as convenient -- and I am happy to tell them that.
I did not have the time or the patience to test drive many other performance cars, but I love almost everything about the IS-F, and at the price I paid, I cannot imagine anything else that would have made me happier.
