I hadn't really thought of the Lexus RC F as a shooting brake model, but now with this render from X-Tomi Design I am really getting on board. Especially considering the rise of CUV type vehicles, I think the Lexus RC F Shooting Brake looks great.

Unfortunately, it seems like this vehicle will remain in the digital realm. It could battle well against the Porsche Panamera though. The Panamera costs $78,000 and would provide 150 hp less than the Lexus RC F Shooting Brake. The Lexus RC F Shooting Brake would cost $62,000. Sounds like a deal to me.

that looks amazing, they need to make this happen, even if it's just some one off model for the heck of it that lexus usa takes to shows and even meets like the cars and coffee meets.

LOL true, no way of that happening with this.
They would need a vehicle with proportions that are in line with it along with performance and tech to keep it at the least right behind the panamera.

Well the Panamera has a less powerful engine. They might not be directly rivals because of the size difference but I don't think that size alone means that two cars are competitors or not.

Ok but if y ou're buying a Panamera its because you need the space, otherwise you would simply spend less money and go Cayman or base 911...

Use value is what excludes the two from competition, regardless of paper racing.

Exactly.
If you want to compare this to something, it has to be something that is more along the lines of what it's actually is, like the hennessy performance corvette shooting brake

It still has a second row of seats and also a hatch trunk that provides more room. I concede there is a size difference I just don't think its so great that they aren't in any competition.

Not bad of a render I fancy wagons but does lexus need a gap filler like this one. It will be just a limited production vehicle that won't sell in huge numbers. Down the road it will be one of those rare cars.

.. before we jump to conclusions I just don't think this will happen.

if you had numbers to support ok, but you don't because they don't overlap.
I understand the whole opinion thing, but you don't get to keep an opinion if it disagrees with the reality of fact...

I rather not see it happen and it won't that's a fact.
But the chance of them doing or influencing some one off model whether it be this or not is a possibility.

Yeah you cant count out the one off guys. I'd probably say it wont happen for a while unless someone has enough dollars to spend for R&D. Lexus wont back something liek that or will they...
