  • With the advent of EVs and the future of transportation as a whole going electric (or at the very least eco-friendly like hybrids), I think it makes sense for manufacturers to start focusing on the people who DO NOT want to let go of the wheel. Those of us who like to drive - be it sideways on a track or fast-paced around the canyons - are the ones who will keep purchasing cars and driving for generations to come. Commuters don't care about driving. They want to get from point A to point B. Doing so in a sleeper that gets put to sleep by being driven at 10% of it's potential, or in a fully electric Prius that's set on autopilot doesn't matter to them, as long as they get to point B at the end of the day. So.. manufacturers like Lexus who make less cars, but *better* cars for actual drivers will see long-time, loyal fans of the brands return to them for leisure cars on the showroom market, sick sleepers on the second-hand market and absolute banger drift missiles once they reach the end of their lifespan. It's a very logical decision to make, WAY ahead of it's time if you ask me. Good job Lexus, I'll see you in a couple dozen years when the comfy daily drivers of today become the awesome slideybois of tomorrow! 🤘😋

I wish there were some sedans in the price range of a Camaro or Mustang with V8's that weren't fat pigs. I like cars that can turn and stop. I'm glad they made this car though, I like it.

  • Am I missing something here didn't they start making the ISF in 2008 then it went away then they replace it with a GS F which later they made the RCF all V8 original . IS F in 2008 had a V-8 with 416 horsepower. It still is to this day one of the most sought-after cars. Try going on Auto Tempest and looking for a good used one under a hundred thousand miles it's hard to find. But I'm so happy they brought it back love it love it love it.

  • The story in this video is off...this engine and the commitment from Toyota to make fun to drive cars dates back to the Original IS F. Toyota brought a group of their best Engineers to work on a secret powerful car to compete with the BMW M3. They worked in a Skunk works team (no corporate involvement just pure engineering) they developed the ISF with the original 5.0L engine. The ISF introduced the F brand to the company and was the first time they stuck the same original 2UR-GSE. Many agree that the ISF beat the was the first time the japanese automaker was competing. The ISF was the first consumer car to have an 8 Speed transmission. There should have been more tribute to the original ISF. No mention of the GSF either. IS 500 is just an IS350 with the 5.0L v8. The origianl ISF was also Wider than the IS350.

  • Shout out to Lexus for actually making a well-made fun car. I have owned several German cars and work on my own cars. My 2GS GS430 is so much better made than my e36, e46, and e92. The only reason I owned the BM's was for the manual. I will be sticking with Lexus moving forward.

  • I think that the formula Lexus used for this is a formula that every car enthusiast is perfectly fine with. The more EV's and economical cars manufacturers sell, the more likely those manufacturers can make small runs of great parts bin performance cars for us enthusiasts.

  • So did we just forget the ISF was ever a thing? Yanno the car that was discontinued in 2014 to lack of sales due to bad marketing? The car that was this exact concept but was built stand alone. This is a great idea, but badged as a ISF not an IS 500

  • At least Lexuses (Lexii??) are reliable and won't be in the shop frequently for even dumb small stupid things like the Germans. Repairs are probably cheaper and much less frequent as some components are shared with Toyota. They might not accelerate, brake, handle well or have all the fancy whiz bang electronic features (and let's face it German electronics are a joke) like their European competitors, but I'd rather have something that will be on the road far longer than in a mechanic's shop.

People always say to choose American cars and trucks but the tundra is more like a big sturdy, reliable truck more than the gmc , that is something most car manufacturers used to take pride in but they have lost their touch, gs350 or is500 over the ford Taurus i currently own. Definitely the car I will be working for!
