Report: Lexus to revive SC nameplate with production LF-LC in 2017

Australian media is at it again as CarsGuide reports that Lexus is preparing to revive the SC nameplate with the production version of the drop-dead gorgeous LF-LC Concept from the 2011 North American International Auto Show.

According to the report, the production model will be a successor to the LF-A, moving the SC nameplate into the realm of the supercar, rather than a high-end luxury grand tourer as in the past. As of now, CarsGuide also reports the model is being researched and developed.

Details like use of a carbon fiber body with an infusion of aluminum is expected. Power is said to be supplied by the same 5.0L V8 powering the RC-F coupe, except reworked to produce around 475hp. Channeling the power to the rear-axle is a ten-speed automatic while a hybrid with over 500hp is expected as well.

An official reveal is apparently slated for the 2017 NAIAS in January.
