Lexus LFA successor based on LF-LC concept planned

Lexus LFA engineer Haruhiko Tanahashi hinted a new halo model is already in the works.

 Lexus LFA successor based on LF-LC concept planned

 

It was back in March when Lexus’ Vice President of Marketing Brian Smith said a production version of the LF-LC will be launched. Now, we heard from LFA engineer Haruhiko Tanahashi a new halo model to sit above the recently unveiled RC but more affordable than the LFA makes sense and he expects a LF-LC production model will come out.

 

Lexus’ international chief Mark Templin confirmed a halo sports car is planned, as well as several F-badged versions of current models. He expressed his intentions to launch “a whole level of real F products with a car like the LFA at the top of it.”

 

We remind you the red LF-LC was exhibited in January 2012 at NAIAS and several months later it showed up at AIMS with an Opal Blue scheme. Both concepts were powered by an Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive system containing an Atkinson-cycle combustion engine and a high-energy battery pack which granted the 2+2 coupes a combined output of 500 bhp (372 kW).

New or used Car?

 Many car purchases start with one decision: New or used? It’s hard to remember a better time to buy either. There are plenty of good vehicles out there either way.
In the end, the decision to buy new or used boils down to what you can afford and what will give you peace of mind.
If you’re on a tight budget, then buying a used car gets you the most vehicle for the money. You can count on one hand the number of new cars that list for less than $12,000. For less than half the price of the average new car, you can buy a 3- or 4-year-old used vehicle that is larger and loaded with more features than a small, bare-bones new one. But buying a used vehicle has its own risks, which could cost you over the life of the vehicle. The fact is, you are buying a vehicle that someone else has owned and driven. You don’t know how it’s been driven or how well it’s been cared for. A used vehicle will almost certainly require maintenance and possibly expensive repairs sooner than a new one, and those repairs probably won’t be covered by a warranty.
The Case for Buying New
For some people, buying used isn’t an option; they want a brand-spanking-new car. They want to select the color and the features in it. There’s definitely a pride of ownership and peace of mind in being a vehicle’s first owner. Some other advantages include:
  • Reduced maintenance expense: A new vehicle won’t need maintenance for the first several thousand miles, and then only an oil change and tuneup will be required. More manufacturers are covering the cost of those routine maintenance items. The new vehicle likely won’t need new tires, a battery, exhaust system or brakes during its first few years of ownership, or even longer.
  • Warranty coverage: The manufacturer covers its new vehicles under warranty for at least three years, and some warranties last much longer. Under a manufacturer’s warranty, if something goes wrong with the car, it’s the responsibility of the dealer and manufacturer to fix it. Typically, these bumper-to-bumper warranties last from three years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first — an important detail to note) to five years and 60,000 miles. In addition to comprehensive warranties, many automakers provide warranty coverage for powertrains. These often extend past the bumper-to-bumper warranties and are often valid for years longer. Some extend up to 10 years or 100,000 miles. It’s good to be aware of these powertrain warranties; if you buy a used car, what’s left of the warranty may (or may not) be fully transferable.
  • Peace of mind: If you encounter problems with your new car, you have legal recourse through state lemon laws. If you can prove that your new car is a lemon (definitions differ), you could receive a replacement vehicle or get your money back. Lemon laws apply only to new cars. You also can find out if your vehicle was returned to the used-car market as a lemon by looking at the vehicle’s title or checking out a vehicle history report.
  • Roadside assistance: In addition to a comprehensive warranty, virtually all mainstream new cars and light trucks come with some level of free roadside assistance while the vehicle remains under warranty. In addition, some automakers reimburse you or provide alternate transportation if you are stranded far from home.
The Case for Buying Used
If you’re not married to the idea of buying a new car, used vehicles have their own appeal:
  • Improved reliability: Although used vehicles typically don’t carry the same warranties as new ones, the original factory warranty on a new car is often transferable to a second owner. Buyers of certified pre-owned cars from an authorized dealer can purchase a late-model used car and get the balance of the original warranty. Often, a manufacturer will offer a longer-term warranty for certified cars, or some buyers choose to add their own extended warranties. Of course, cars have been getting more reliable over the years, as consumers have demanded it.
  • Just like new: Another trend that makes buying used a better option is the proliferation of certified pre-owned programs. The idea started with luxury brands such as Lexus and Mercedes-Benz and has become a popular alternative for car buyers

Kizashi as a “very unlucky car”

Suzuki is describing the Kizashi as a “very unlucky car” which has slim chances of receiving a direct successor in the future.

 Suzuki regrets launching Kizashi, unlikely to receive successor

 

The Japanese marque says Kizashi failed to be a success due to poor timing since the car was introduced to the market just before the global financial crisis which started affecting United States in 2009. At that moment there were a few debates about whether to launch the car or not and in the end they decided to start selling it since Suzuki “made a big investment to develop” the model.

If the model would have been a success, Suzuki’s plans were to release a V6-powered version along with a more practical wagon derivative. The company’s Australian managing director Masaaki Kato says a second generation model is unlikely to happen because it requires a lot of investments in exchange for what will probably be “too little return.”

One of Kizashi’s main problems is its extremely steep starting price (from 29,990 AUD in Australia) but that could be fixed sometime in the future by conducting a local restructure which could lower the mid-size sedan’s price tag, although Kato didn’t specify an exact figure.

Buying a Japanese Used Car

Alain Japan

As per the latest auto news – A Research undertaken by Expert for Used Cars. The Al Ain Japan Indicates that Japanese cars are the most reliable in the used car category. A reliability survey also showed that the top seven places in ten were taken by Japan Car Manufacturers while European used cars are from among the ten least reliable. 

Japanese car manufacturers Honda · leading for the fifth year, followed by Subaru, Mitsubishi, Lexus and Toyota · in that order · took the top credits in polls conducted on performing old cars aged between three and ten years. Very few of these cars required repairs in a one year period of use, with Honda leading with the least at just seven per cent cars needing repairs.The other Japanese used cars leading the lot were Mazda and Nissan. Germany-made Skoda and Britain-made MINI were the only cars from the…

 Honda previews 2014 Civic hatchback WTCC racer

It was less than a week ago when Honda surprised us with the return of an estate car in WTCC with the Civic Tourer and now they are previewing its hatchback sibling set to compete in next year’s season. The vehicle will come with a few revisions to the wheel arch extensions and will have larger diameter wheels. In addition, the 2014 WTCC-spec Honda Civic hatchback will benefit from a more optimized aerodynamic kit which will include a larger rear spoiler.

Two works cars will compete within the JAS Motorsport team with Gabriele Tarquini and Tiago Monteiro. There will also be private outfits such as Zengo Motorsport with Norbert Michelisz as driver and Proteam Racing with Mehdi Bennani behind the wheel.
