Report: No matter how much you wish upon 11:11 or whatever, a Lexus LF-A successor won’t happen for a while

AutoCar recently sat down with Lexus and sadly learned that a successor to the LF-A won’t happen for a while. So for now, those wanting the ultimate Lexus will likely have to look at the not-so-bad-but-actually-pretty-hot LC500 coupe.

This completely makes sense considering the LF-A was kind of a homage to motorsports homologation, and supercar engineering excess where Lexus literally lost money on every car it built and sold, aside from the LF-A’s astronomical price of $375,000.

That’s because the LF-A was engineered, or over-engineered in many many many excellent and fabulous ways. It was a technological feature and showcase for Lexus, and its support was extremely bolstered with the fact that Jeremy Clarkson loved it, and he never loves Lexuses, or many cars for that matter.

But engineering exercises obviously don’t pay the bills in the short or near-long term and the LF-A only pays off with what the bean counters can extract by inspiration from the LF-A, both in engineering and design. So that’s why it makes sense that Lexus doesn’t have an interest in making a successor to the LF-A, for the time being.

“It is possible that we will one day create another supercar, but in my view a super-high-end machine is not what we need right now,” Lexus’ head of Europe shared with AutoCar.
