The RC200t is an RC350 body with a 4 cylinder turbo. Get the looks of the RC350 for a much cheaper price.

I like this move Lexus is making which should help in targeting more vehicles to compete with and of course improve their sales, the main thing they need is volume and this sure accomplishes that.

Brings in a whole different demographic to the Lexus fold.

They better do something about the weight of the car. 240ish HP isn't enough for this car. They'd be better off turbo charging the V6. Now, that would be SWEET!

That is for sure my friend. How about a twin turbo? If you're going to dream, dream big. LOL

I know... right?! I so wanted the F. A little out of budget and I wanted AWD. But the F-Sport isn't a bad compromise. Loving it!

I also wanted the F, but budget, retiring soon, and the fear of losing my license because of the tickets won out. I made a good choice as I already have a V8 in the garage that will scare the poop out of me when I want it to.


I was going to get the 2015 Corvette C7, but there isn't enough leg room, and I didn't want to drive with my knee 1/2" from the dash.
