New Lexus Standard For Grilles?

It seems like the RC F's grille may become the standard of sorts for future Lexus productions. Here are similar grille in their future releases along with a few Concepts.

Coming Soon:
Introducing the first-ever Lexus GS F - lexus.com
Introducing the all-new Lexus RX - lexus.com

Concept:
Lexus LF-LC Concept Car - lexus.com
The Lexus LF-C2 Concept Convertible - lexus.com

I can see them changing things up a lot over time, all they really need to do is keep the spindle outline and everything else inside can be changed... which is along the lines of what we have been seeing.

I think that the grille looks better when it is filled in with the crosshatch pattern. That looks better than the vertical slats. I think the vertical slats make it look like a moustache. And there needs to be continuity with the whole grille, not one things at the top half and another at the bottom half.

That's the RC350, so that look which doesn't look nearly as good as what's found on full on F models (RC-F, GS-F, etc) is to be expected, after all they need to justify what the top of the line pack has while keeping lower models in their place... can't get that confused.
spoonful and GearHeadPeter like this.

not to mention giving a visual reason to upgrade...

I dont think it would look good in all vertical slats.. too much like a waterfall, it would compete with the angular design of the car... IMO

Even if they don't switch all the grilles to the crosshatch pattern, I think that there is something a little better than what is on the RC350 right now. I think that the grille should be filled in with all one pattern and not split into three different sections. What that pattern is, I'll leave up to Lexus.

I wouldn't mind it being all crosshatch or vertical slats as long as they stick with one design. The current grille gives it a bit of a mustache look. It doesn't look the best but it does give you the opportunity to stick this on:

That is exactly what I was thinking. That image is great, thanks for the chuckle.
