Reviews the 2008 Lexus IS-F


Senior editor Joe Wiesenfelder likes to drive fast cars. Who doesn’t, right? That’s why his take on the all-new 2008 Lexus IS-F is so interesting. He really hammers the go-fast Lexus on its choice of transmission, holding it up to the reigning king of the class, the BMW M3 — as he should. See if its power and eerily beluga whale-like looks won Joe over in the end.

2008 Lexus IS-F Expert Review

Im convinced Lexus will never offer a real *good* manual transmission.

If Toyota could make the Supra, in my opinion one of the best japanese sports cars, why couldnt they transfer that over to Lexus and still give it all those luxury items... Lexus is Toyota derived anyway. But i like simplicity in cars, if it takes a PhD to even change the oil in it (i work in a quick-lube shop) then they are going to far.

ROFL at the picture of a beluga whale.


"Lexus is Toyota derived"

Lexus IS Toyota period.
