Intended to slot above the RC as a niche-selling flagship, the production LF-LC will retain at least 90 percent of the concept's sleek styling, Lexus Europe vice president Alain Uyttenhoven said.
"The production LF-LC will not be a huge volume [car] for Lexus, but it will bring huge emotion," said Uyttenhoven.
Technical details for the range-topping 2+2 coupe aren't available, but rumors have suggested it will ride on a shortened version of the LS sedan's rear-wheel-drive architecture. Speculative reports have suggested that anything from the RC F's naturally-aspirated V8 to hybridized V6 or V8 engines could make their way under the hood.
It's unknown whether the LF-LC name will make to production, or whether a shortened LC moniker will be applied.
The LF-LC will be part of a Lexus growth plan that calls for a new model every year until 2020. After this year's debut of the NX compact crossover, the RC will follow in 2015, with the LF-LC set to launch in 2016.
