Lexus IS C Sport fq

Despite no official announcement from Lexus on a future IS Coupe or a high-performance F version of the new IS C Convertible, a new report claims that a Lexus IS F Convertible is in the works.

Coupe and convertible versions of the IS-F would be welcome by Lexus fans, and it would also likely be met with good sales, BMW has proved this with the M3 Coupe and Convertible together outselling the sedan by three to one. Lexus has a sporty IS Convertible, in the form of the F-Sport but a super-performance drop-top could still find its own niche. Especially packing a 5.0L V8 engine with 416hp combined with the sun on your face and the wind in your hair?

According to the report sources at Lexus say a new IS F Convertible is coming in early 2011 and would feature the same 5.0L V8 and quick-shifting 8-speed automatic as the four-door.
