With the last LFA in the 500 unit production run completed, it looks like Toyota’s Motomachi factory where the Lexus supercar was fabricated and assembled will not sit idle for long. Brian Smith, Lexus VP for  marketing has told Wards Auto that the LF-LC concept, which was introduced to rave reviews at the 2012 NAIAS in Detroit, has been greenlighted for production. The LFA Works seems like a logical place for that production. “That was (intended as) a concept car, and I think it surprised everybody, including us, when Japan said due to overwhelming response they decided to do it. It’s a huge win.” So far, Lexus has shown two iterations of the LF-LC, the red debut car and a blue one with a revised interior that was shown at Chicago in February of this year. The car was designed by Toyota’s CALTY design studio in Newport Beach, California. Other than the fact that it’s going to be made, no doubt in limited numbers and at a price point above the rest of the Lexus lineup (but probably cheaper than the $375,000 the LFA cost), little else was revealed by Smith, so it’s not known if the production car will retain the concept’s hybrid powertrain.
