    Watched and thought they finally put some decent power in. I really wish they would, at least a turbo or tt v6. The highest hp variant barely has 300 hp. Lmfao at them trying to convey they had to spend millions creating a track to test that slow ass car

    Edit: they killed the gs and aren’t making an is f. Srs wtf, Lexus IS dead. Cementing themselves as a car for Karen and geriatrics

    Because people think getting a lexus is like getting a real luxury car.

    Infiniti and lexus are the phucking poverty of luxury cars. Even a base ass A4 has more tech than an IS.

    And lol @ 300hp. Out of a V6......in a "sporty luxury sedan"...........in phucking the year 2020 lol.

    An ecoboost explorer also has 300hp lol.
    Schooling everyone that has to do with automotive one brah at a time. It's tiring but someone gotta do it lol

    Is it still the same engine as the last 10 years?

    I have an IS350 F Sport, gonna keep it for at least 5 more years. Not complaining, but just sayin'.

    Not really a fan of the rear end. Looks like a Lincoln MKZ.

    Lexus builds essentially the ideal luxury car, insanely reliable, insanely comfortable, great looking interior, carefree ownership. what more do you expect. I think you mean to argue that their luxury-sportscars aren't that good that's a completely different topic. saying Lexus are poverty luxurycars is just plain ignorant of the facts.

    Used GS350 here. Toyota quality and reliability, upscale design, interior luxury, ok power. Looks faster than it really is. Pretty good for my daily driver beater. Should last me 150+k miles before I decide to upgrade.

    Want a sports car, get a sports car. If you want a sports sedan, then yes get German car, but there are huge trade offs for that extra 100-200 horsepower I would never get to enjoy in bumper to bumper traffic.

    I'm gonna hold on to naturally aspirated engines as long as I can. No thanks to turbos for daily driving.

    Also for some reason can't ever see me driving a Camry even though they are fantastic cars. Its a superficial thing in my brain. Rather go full budget mode and rock a Corolla and go full economy.

    Lexus quality is top notch and comparable with Euro cars of the same class. Yes they are underpowered but you get a reliable vehicle that will last forever with basic maintenance.
    You run into issues in higher mile vehicles that are FI'd and NA pushing out a lot of power.

    We already know if they wanted they can make bad ass sports cars. They've done it before.

    Of course you'd pick Mustang. You're a hardcore 'Murica conservative.

    I'd rather have a car with agility, precision, and luxury than a car that just goes fast in a straight line.

    They're reliable because they are the same basic car they've been making for 20 years with none of the tech competitors use to get higher performance and meet emissions and mpg requirements

    I have no idea how Toyota managed to get away with that but more power to them. They make the perfect car for people who don't especially enjoy driving and don't want to have to deal with expensive repairs after 5 years like youd have to with real luxury cars

    even stock my pp mustang beat an m4 in track testing, and tied a $140k m4 GTS

    not sure what you mean by agility and precision because the track times, skidpad etc for these boomer mobile Toyotas aren't exactly impressive

    I'm so tired of companies calling their cars "Sporty luxury sedan". 300hp is far from sporty especially in a 3800lb sedan.

    My 2001 Lexus GS430 has 300hp. I mean wtf Lexus. They killed they GS because they didn't know what they wanted with the GS.

I think you mean to argue that their luxury-sportscars aren't that good that's a completely different topic. saying Lexus are poverty luxurycars is just plain ignorant of the facts.
    People are expecting performance from Lexus and I think it's safe to say that Lexus never really cared to add performance. They compete with base model BMW/Audi/Mercedes and that's it. Lexus is nothing more than an upgraded Toyota at this point

    Lexus is far from a performance brand, that's what i was getting at earlier.

    People who buy lexus's THESE DAYS, get it because it's a lexus, a supposed "luxury" brand. It's not.

    They get it because they can't afford a real luxury car aka german luxury. That's why i said it was poverty.

    Obviously they're good cars. Because it's toyota, and toyota is top notch in terms of dependability.

    But that's what i mean. These days a new camry has the same power, the same comfort, same reliability, updated interior, updated features, updated infotainment. But people wanna pay 10k more for a lexus version? Uhh why? Because they can't be seen driving in the same car with a toyota badge?

    Lexus has been going to chit the past decade or so. The lexus of the 90s were legit, along with early 2000s. What about when the IS250 first came out? lol

    That chit was the WORST. Honestly the slowest car i ever driven with a 6cyl.
    Schooling everyone that has to do with automotive one brah at a time. It's tiring but someone gotta do it lol


    I have a manual car but auto IS WAY BETTER THESE DAYS. ACCEPT THE FACTS BRAHS! LOL

    Agreed that Lexus is lazy when it comes to performance, but the IS is not a Camry. The interior, feel, handling, sound, and chassis are all different.

    I will say that I've driven the Lexus GS and was not impressed. That is definitely an old man's car.

    But the IS F Sport is still a good pick for younger guys who want a reliable sporty luxury car that they can keep for more than 5 years, unlike the German cars.

    Toyota doesn't seem to understand, no one gives a shyt about engineering if the car is boring, and Lexus are always boring.
    "So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. . . . Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place." -Tecumseh

    Younger guys + want to keep more than 5 years doesn't belong in the same sentence dude.

    The youth these days is all about flashy things. So they'll get this IS, and in 3 years want something newer, something that's trending, stylish etc.

    Usually younger guys try to get something german. Even if a base ass BMW that makes 200hp, they'll get that because of the badge. At least it's a proper luxury car.

    Lexus isn't what it used to be. They aren't doing anything spectacular. That's why a lot of the models they offer do so badly. They are pricing themselves out of the market and only relying on their "reliability" to keep some interest in them.

    Well that's what warranties are for. You get a car, and it has a 4 year or 5 year warranty, get that, or you can lease it, and in 3 years dump it for another new car.

    Both brands are boring. But you'll save more money getting the toyota since it's essentially the same thing.

    That’s the whole point of buying a Lexus, so you don’t have to keep getting a car every 3-5 years. You still get a great product that you won’t need to worry about for the next 10+ years. If you wanted a new flashy car all the time, You obviously wouldn’t get a lexus

    Hello Lexus, welcome to the world of irrelevancy which houses Acura. Acura has been waiting since 1996.

    Nobody keeps their cars for that long. I've lied to myself many times about "keeping a car forever". Chit happens, accidents happen, life happens, and priorities change.

    Land Cruiser/LX and Tundras are probably the only cars Toyota sells which their owners keep "forever".

    Its a nice car. But Lexus is having a total identity crises. Lexus was conceived as a company that makes luxury cars but now they want to go after the younger market with younger designs.

    I disagree, I have two that I bought new. One is 15 and the other is 8. Many people I know do as well, what’s the point of buying a new car that highly depreciates every few years? I haven’t had a car payment in years and my insurance is dirt cheap

    Edit: and you made my point. The kind of person who wants a new vehicle all the time, will most likely not be looking at a Lexus

    This.

    Plus with a "luxury sport sedan", that's not a car you wanna keep long lol.

    You want a car to retain value, and have all the comfort, reliability, MPG all that jazz?

    Get a camry. That's a car you buy and keep forever. Not a phucking lexus IS lol.

    The car is already outdated, even in 2020.
