  1. Comparing the LC500 to any Corvette is the epitome of an apples to oranges comparison. I’ve never seen GM product have the fit and finish of a basic Toyota, much less a Lexus. Even BMW and Mercedes scratches their heads on how Lexus does it. I’d say hold off and wait for the LCF, it should have a twin turbo 4.0L like the new LC500, but with boosted torque and HP (600+?).

  2. Beautiful. However, all the things you hype about it you get in a 60K Corvette. Front Mid-Engine Rear Drive 2-seater with a 50/50 weight distribution. It has a few more HP but far less torque. 0-60 is a lot slower and top speed is lower. Interior is similar but I prefer the more driver focus of the Corvette. I’m not saying it is bad. It is worth something to have a lower production car for the bit more exclusivity without having to go full exotic price. Nice competition to the Mercedes SL or Jaguar F. Been there, done that.
