Lexus is planning a LFA supercar follow up

Lexus LFA successor is being planned by Lexus, but no details are offered (NYSE:TM)

Lexus is a car company that many will think of as making luxury cars that are more for comfort than speed and performance. That is true for the most part, but Lexus did make a supercar called the LFA during a two-year production run. That production run ended in 2012 after Lexus built 500 examples of the vehicle.

The LFA was a sports car using high tech construction methods and powered by a 552-hp engine. The production run for the LFA has been over for a few years, but Lexus has announced that it intends to build a successor to the supercar. Sadly, Lexus has offered no insight into exactly what the successor to the LFA will be like.

 

Originally, the LFA was supposed to be a car selling in the $120,000 range, but that price quickly grew as more technology was added. The car eventually ended up costing $375,000 per unit. It wasn't the fastest supercar in that price range but it looks good and sounds fantastic.
