More Lexus Track Edition cars to comeby Ben Hsu
The limited-production RC F Track Edition won't be the last, says Lexus
Lexus plans to expand the Track Edition philosophy to other models. Recently debuted at the Detroit Auto Show, the Lexus RC F boasts more horsepower and a light weight than the existing high-performance version of the RC coupe.
Though production of that car will be very limited -- just 60 will be built -- Lexus's vice president for product planning Cooper Ericksen told Motor1 that there will be more Track Editions in upcoming model years.
It would seem that the Track Edition appellation would only be relevant to cars that already have an F model. That means just the RC F and GS F would apply, but Ericksen also mentioned that the F brand might be expanded to other models, including SUVs.
It seems that Lexus's entire performance lineup is under reevaluation right now, and what the future holds will is still very much up in the air.
