This car will go directly against the BMW 4 Series and Audi A5. The 'RCF' will go directly against the M3/M4 Segment. The ISF is probably going to be either discontinued or priced down. I don't see where the ISF can fit in when it comes to Lexus's new lineup.

This is a very good looking coupe. I will take this over a BMW 4 Series any time.

Sweet looking whip Lexus have here...by far the best color I've seen thus far for the RC F Sport.

Looks great. So does the IS250/350 F Sport.

Problem?
Missing a lot of key features that should be standard in this class of cars...

No memory seats seriously?
No 360 camera?

I have to say that is a good looking car other than the front facia :cool:
Other than reliability issue, I would still go with BMW.
That's where Q50 stands out!

Is there a bump/hump on the driver side? I hate that one! Interior wise, it is ok but they could do better..... it seems busy!

I definitely like the looks over the 435i. BMW lost me with their unibrow headlights. I do, however, find the new X5 very attractive.

as a former is350 owner..infiniti has definitely bossed out their q50 compared to the competition in terms of gadgets. ive never even heard of 360 camera.. who else has that??

as for the rc and 3is, the lfa inspired gauge cluster is pretty sexy in person if you ever get a chance to play with it

The only major issue I take with the IS/RC is not even the styling, though I admit that's a bit tough to swallow. It's the interior- way too much hard plastic in it. Why Lexus fans give this a pass while they pissed on the V35 G for pulling the same cost-cuts 10 years ago is beyond... oh, wait- that's why they are fans! But seriously, the build quality is superb, almost German. The gauges are sweet, most switches feel nice, the leather (real or artifical) feels fabulous, and the stitched soft surfaces on the IP cover and console are (as in the Q50) first-rate. However, everything below that is Camry-grade, hard, coarse plastic. I was hugely disappionted in the materials overall in Chicago. It's as bad as it looks in some high-res close-up pics. It feels at least two classes below the GS. The cabin is an unholy mixture of the exquisitely high-quality and the very cheap. It's worse than the 3/4-series, which also underwhelmed me in overall interior ambiance and material quality. Neither can touch the A4 and Q50, and the new C-class resolutely obliterates them.

Otherwise, though, it's a great car. It should remain one of the best-driving and most-reliable luxury/sport sedans on the market.

The front fascias on the is350 is what truly ruins it for me. Although the size issue came up often, I was willing to make due with my 4 year olds feet on the headrests...this front fascia is beyond my worst nightmares.

Cool, but the front is way too over the top for me.
