    I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    what is this ?
    new M3 ? Lexus ?








    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    I would say Lexus.

    But really strange ist the red nummber from stuttgart and the "Porsche-Motorsport-Design" of the driver's helmet.

    Maybe the get some help from weissach....

    Lexus..?!

    Did you notice the 4 exausts? ( one on top of each other)

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    Whatever it is, it has the largest outside mirrors ever seen on a small sedan.

    I agree,

    If they ever produce this car they are going to call it Dumbo!!

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    Lexus IS500. The upcoming M3 rival.

    Have you seen the spy pics of Merc's new C-class? Mirrors as big as these, looks horrible!

    I guess it's a new European safety law they have to comply with...

    whatever it is , UGLY!

    Are you sure about the Lexus?

    Golden rims make me think of a new Subaru Impreza WRX...

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    Auto-Motor-Sport had this car with the same red number on page 8 of their 16/2006 issue. Lexus IS 460 R, 4.6V8 400 PS.

    But what about the Porsche Motor-Sport-Helmet of the driver

    I think mv's correct. Unfortunately even the far East couldn't escape Bangle's influences....Yea, look like truck mirrors- maybe they're going to tow a camper?

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    i think the new Lexus.....

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    This is the Lexus IS compeditor to the M3.

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    When I first saw th C-Pillars I thought BMW...then I saw those lights ....then the exhausts ... It's a Lexus

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    lexus IS and it will be hot!

    Correct , its the IS....There a nice motor...

    throt....

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    Yes, it's a Lexus IS. As you might know, Porsche routinely performs chassis development for other manufacturers. I think we can all agree that current Lexuses need a LOT of outside help before they can be considered sporty!

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    I could like the exhuasts verticle instead of horizontal. That sounds like fun.

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    brembo brakes as well

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    Groom- Lexus IS is pretty good, IMO even the IS300 compared favorably to the BMW 3 series...

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    IMHO Lexus is not competing with BMW, but with Mercedes (See AJ Castaneda's signature ). I'm confident the Weissacher wizards will make the most of it, though.

    Re: I saw this prototype on Nurburgring

    The A7 looks interesting
