no body I know of , every1 I know runs 12s n up
A few PFS and SRT cars have run 11 flat, nothing quicker has been recorded unfortunatly.

There are cars that can do it, cars lacking a good enough driver is the problem.

Lexus didn't build a race car, it's not even a SPORTS car. The car is just not designed well enough to handle that kind of hp to traction ratio. Not to say it won't be done. I'm betting someone will hit the low 10's maybe faster, but there's not gonna be much of the original IS left once they're finished ;)

Oh as a side note, did you guys check out the new edition of Super Street Mag? 1400fwhp Scion TC. It runs in the 6's. There's not much of that Scion left either.

how is it not even a sportscar?

handling, powerful engine(when souped up), aerodynamic, etc.

whats a sports car to you?
