Firs renders of a RC350C have surfaced.




Natural evolution of the IC250C




but the ultimate question, hard or soft top?



I think Hard tops are actually boring.

I think the Lexus RC looks amazing as a convertible no matter how you look at it, from the front or back.

I would vote for a hard top. Soft top looks cheap to me. Ruins the look of the car with the top up IMO.

The RC350 looks good with the convertible treatment though. Is this for sure going to happen or is it just an idea of fans?

Wow, I cannot believe how the RC350 convertible makes the IS convertible seem so dated. That contrast was truly an eye-opener.

I was also surprised by that, the IS convertible didn't have much happening on it's side profile, if it had more then maybe it would be better. At least now they're on the right track.

Your comment begs another point. Is more dynamic sheet metal surfacing a better attribute? It's certainly more modern, but is it better?

Cars with fussy lines tend to date themselves even more quickly, whereas less adorned sheet metal can take on a "classic" look with time.

It's hard to say if the RC is going to become dated quickly because of its styling. It certainly has a strong look to it, and I think that alone makes it more susceptible to looking dated quickly. Can't predict what trends are going to happen with vehicle styling in the future though.

it's better in some cases, on a sporty coupe i think it is, on a luxury cruiser, not so much. it's why the Lexus SC has always had a timeless look, no matter which generation it was in
