Here's an edited version of an article by veteran Japan correspondent Peter Lyon:

2009 Tokyo Auto Show Preview: Production Lexus LF-A Supercar
Edmunds Inside Line

Right on the heels of the announcement that the 2010 British Auto Show is off comes news today from the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association that the 2009 Tokyo Auto Show, slated for late October this year, will be shortened by four days. But at least it's still on — and Toyota will make an extra effort to help stimulate the show-going public, a source tells Inside Line.

Some excitement will be generated by the fact that Toyota's new president, Akio Toyoda, will be taking over in June. Sure to be more interesting to the show-going public is this tidbit: The production version of the 600-horsepower V10-powered Lexus LF-A supercar, our source says, will not make its debut in Frankfurt but instead will be unveiled in Tokyo.

JAMA, which earlier this year seriously considered canceling the show altogether, has also decided to downsize the area used from the normal four halls to possibly two at Chiba prefecture's Makuhari Messe site, one hour east of Tokyo.

Originally scheduled to run from October 23 to November 8, the show's new closing date will be November 4.

Inside Line says: At this rate, the 2009 Tokyo Auto Show is sounding more like the "Toyota Auto Show with Friends."
