Toyota’s luxury brand Lexus has recently announced the production stop of the IS F, confirming a rumor which first appeared back in 2013.
The Japanese based automaker Lexus has recently discontinued the IS F. The announcement hasn’t been made official but it was confirmed by a company’s representative, who has told the Dutch automotive media that the model in question has left the production line, confirming a rumor which has appeared last year. An official statement hasn’t been made in this case but new reports are saying that this step has been taken in order to introduce a production version of the LF-LC Concept car.
As a small reminder, the Lexus IS F has been introduced back in 2007 and despite the long production, of approximately 4 years, the car manufacturer has only managed to sell around 11,000 units. Toyota now has the RC-F, which is basically a high performance version of the new IS, coming in with a 5.0 liter V8 engine, producing 450 HP (335 kW) and 518 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque. The production stop of the IS F will probably be officially announced over the following weeks, through a press release.
