You are only 5 posts to late.

A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.

The name originated from the F-1 program. Actually, it was supposed to be named L-F1 (lexus F-1)

The FIA, the formula 1 governing body, told Toyota that they could not use F-1 in their name. I really dont even know why Toyota asked! I would have just ran with it!

Since they could not use the F1, then they opted for the L-FA (i guess for being the first one).

But now why "L", just doesn't make sense, for LeMans??? Then it should be LM.

Why not the LM-F?

Yup, that's what I've read.

That would be perfect.

Keep in mind, though, that, to my knowledge, the only name along those lines that Toyota has registered/copyrighted is LFA. And that's what appeared on the latest racers at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring.

I have a strong gut feeling that the LF-A (or LFA) name will stay for production.
