Lexus LC Convertible, Cadillac EV plans, Toyota Supra leak

The Lexus LC Convertible Is Here To Fill Your Ears With N/A V8 Noise Behold, the rather lovely Lexus LC Convertible
Roberta Sherman | 14 January, 2019, 09:29

We'd like to apply that same present tense to its status as a production vehicle.

We'll be seeing the convertible LC in concept form next week at the Detroit Auto Show, but there aren't any definite plans to bring it to production just yet.

Unlike the ungainly Lexus SC convertible that vanished with barely a whimper in 2010 after an eight-year run, the new LC concept eschews a foldable hardtop for a conventional soft roof that better allows it to retain the basic shape of the coupe model. Otherwise it's a concept that looks like a sure thing so you can expect Lexus to put this into production soon.

US GOP House Leader Promises Quick Action Against ‘Racist’ Republican Rep
I think all of us ought to be united, regardless of party, in saying, white supremacism, white nationalism, is hatred. It was the latest in a history of inflammatory comments by King, and one that has him in hot water with his party.

While the firm describes the result as a "concept", it adds that the LC Convertible will stand as an "aspirational halo vehicle for the entire Lexus lineup".

The LC Convertible Concept may edge ahead of it, though.

Whether the roof will be fabric or metal has not been stated, while there is also no information as to the folding mechanism.

A lot of them only burst once, never to be heard from again. "We don't know the precise distance to the second one yet". Including the repeater, CHIME picked up a total of 13 new FRBs over the course of two months.

At 4770mm long, 1920mm wide and 1340mm tall with a 2870mm wheelbase, the Convertible is identical in size to the Coupe in all directions bar height (-5mm).

Much attention has been paid to the cabin, which is fitted with seats finished in white leather with yellow accents.

Unique 22-inch alloy wheels fill the arches, and the chopped roofline makes way for a rear deck that gives the LC Convertible classic roadster proportions.

Major League Baseball bending rules for Kyler Murray, Oakland Athletics to reach deal
That would be taking special treatment to a new level, but MLB thinks that highly of Murray and wants him in baseball. Obviously, that $15 million ask exceeds that total bonus allotment on its own, and it has already been spent.

While there are no details on the powertrain for the convertible, that very absence implies the assumption that the droptop will share the naturally aspirated V-8 of the LC500 and the combination V-6/electric-motor hybrid system of the LC500h. "You would see its dynamic lines as you approach, hear its engine when you start it up and feel everything around you once on the road".
