Looks like Lexus will be debuting an F version of the IS for either 2015 or 2016. I'm thinking it will show up in 2015 as a MY 2016. Anyways, just the lone spy shot here...

How do we know that is an IS-F and not just an IS. Is there something in this spy shot that differentiates it from the regular IS?

It will suck if that's what it turns out to be, but I won't give my hopes up just yet, going to wait and see what comes of this in the future.

This photo, supposedly showing a 2016 Lexus IS F sedan, was sent to our email by the crew over at Autonocion, who stated that it's the first image of the performance model. I wish it was, but I'm pretty sure it isn't.
Now, I could tell you about the boot spoiler and how it crudely cuts around the Lexus logo, but there's one main element missing from this car that immediately busts the IS F claim. Can you tell us what it is? Hint; it rhymes with the last name of one of the new stars added to Sylvester Stallone's upcoming flick, "The Expendables 3".

While you take a moment to think about it - perhaps these photos of the RC F can help you out too, let us tell you that we have no fresh info on the IS F other than that, if produced, it would likely share its V8 powertrain with the coupe model.

Now, as to what this car is, I'm almost convinced that it's a regular Lexus IS with a TRD kit (see our post here, or if you want a white example, Lexus Enthusiast has one here - or just look at the second photo below).

Got to love the parts that TRD offers, they made some epic stuff in the past. A widebody kit for the supra was one of them.

probably not but likely you can order it through a shop near you that wont mind taking care of the whole process, always a way with the right money
