How great would it be if Lexus offered a manual option on the RC350.

We are lacking a manual option on the IS350 but with the RC being a coupe maybe there is a chance?

Here is to hoping :rolleyes:

Toyota/Lexus is one of the brands that keep their cars more driver focused so there a good chance we'll see it happen. Maybe not in the RC-F but definitely in a lower end trim. Like the IS250, the basemodel RC might get it.

Well the IS250 gets a 6 speed

Don't know if there will be a RC250

I would like the RC350 to have a manual.

So far it's just rumored, i doubt it, but you never know. It would be good to have a super cheap model to target even more people. It might just be a 4 cylinder RC or even a small V6.

It'll be tough.

Not sure if people shopping for a sports coupe want something as weak as the 250 engine.

That's where the 250 comes in, it's not for people who could care for real performance. instead it will be the same type of crowd that buys a low output V6 mustang, and other underpowered coupes.

but if the RC250 is turboed! the 428 is now an I4 Turbo....
then that would make sense.
turboed 4 cylinder vs turboed 4 cylinder.
it might even help if they create an F-Sport version of it since the 428 will likely have an M version
