Trademark Application Hints at New Lexus LS F Sport Sedan


Lexus has filed a trademark application for “LS-FC Concept.”

Lexus recently unveiled the LS F Sport model, suggesting a hardcore LS F isn’t out of the question. And now a trademark application filed on April 24, 2017, with the United States Patent and Trademark Office hints at a concept version of a Lexus sport sedan in the near future. Although the LS-FC Concept trademark is a bit different than previous Lexus concepts that begin with “LF,” the use of “LS” points to a concept based on the automaker’s flagship sedan. Lexus used the LF-FC Concept in 2015 to preview the new Lexus LS.

Lexus has been working to strengthen its high-performance offerings and currently has the RC F and GS F in its lineup. Rumors suggest an LC F is around the corner, and there’s a possibility the LS-FC Concept previews the high-performance coupe, but it’s unlikely given the trademark. Then again, automakers have done stranger things when it comes to naming concepts, but it certainly makes more sense that LS-FC would preview a future Lexus LS F model.
