We’re nearing the end of the Lexus LFA’s limited production of 500 units, which means it’s time for the Japanese automaker to work on the LFA Roadster variant.

Originally rumored to debut in 2014, the LFA Roadster has reportedly been confirmed for a mid-2014 launch which means we’ll see a one year break before new LFAs hit the road. We don’t expect any major changes to the model other than it being a convertible, so chances are the same 4.8-liter V10 under the hood of the current LFA will find its way onto the Roadster. Besides, it’s not like the 560-hp and 354 lb-ft of torque wasn’t good enough.

That isn’t all the big news that Lexus has. The luxury automaker plans on developing a GS Coupe model, which will be slotted in between the IS-C and the upcoming LF-LC production model.
