Lexus has trademarked the 'LC 500' and 'LX 500h' names. These names will likely be used for the production version of the LF-LC concept.

Less than a month ago we heard Lexus Europe Vice President Alain Uyttenhoven saying the LF-LC concept will evolve into a production car which won't act as an LFA successor. Now, Toyota's premium marque has registered the "LC 500" and "LX 500h" nameplates and probably these will be used for the car in question which will be built in larger quantities compared to the LFA's 500-unit run.
The Lexus LC 500 will use a 5.0-liter V8 engine sourced from the RC F which will produce 471 bhp and 530 Nm of torque. The LC 500h will likely combine a 3.5-liter V6 with an electric motor that will together have an output of more than 500 bhp. Both the Lexus LC 500 and LC 500h will likely go on sale in the second half of 2017. Both will probably be based on the next-gen LS which should be in dealer showrooms a year earlier.

I was looking forward to hearing them use the SC nameplate again, but clearly that doesn't seem to be happening with these trademarks being filed.
