as long as it drives like any other boring lexus, then why bother with a v8 or v10 or slapping turbochargers ?
you want an exciting car, here's how it should look and drive
why the gto you may ask ? because they're not up to the task to play with cars that come with double clutch, let alone the fast shifting 8 and 9 speeds in audi, bmw and mercedes :)
if they let go of the prius tech and concept with fuel saving bs which is stuck up their arse, then they might have a chance.
making stupid noises and falling far behind in acceleration is not a wow car, sorry, but that is not going to sell really fast unless you're a dumbass murican brainwashed by the media about how awesome lexus is with its practicality and sheer power on paper that starts to disappoint once it goes head to head up against cars such as 480hp gtr and gets burned lol.
