Lexus LF-A

So what's with it? There were the two concepts, then tons of spy shots, plus there was a LF-A race car @ the 24 Hours of Nurburgring, and it just faded off..are they making it, or axing it like they did with the NSX?

P.S. - Dead NSX =

Funny how people call the Volt vapor-ware, but the LF-A...

Too bad about the NSX. Looks like Mazda and Nissan are the only Japanese firms that car about performance and sportiness. That's why they have products on my list right behind the Camaro.

RX-8, Mazdaspeed3, and obviously the MX-5. Mazda is the most enthusiast-oriented Japanese brand.

See my post above. They make the best selling sports car in the world, and it is widely regarded as being a benchmark in mechanical feel and driver involvement, especially for the price.

MX-5 are for midgets! Not really a good car maybe for handling. I wouldnt know because I cant fit in one my head sticks out over the roof line and I cant get my left leg in.

I was thinking of this one.



Although, I'd rather have this V8.
