One of the things I wanted to see from Lexus in the future was some kind of limited number of high performace cars like the Audi RS or S,
Mercedes AMG or BMW M, but I guess that isn't going to happen in the near future because that is not the Lexus philosophy. It makes sense, but doesn't mean I agree 100% with their philosophy.


This was taken from the New York Time article on 10/22/03. Sorry if this is a repost!

"At Lexus, the decision is a matter of philosophy. "We prefer a balance between luxury, performance and quality," said Michael Wells, the vice president of marketing for Lexus. "We put all those things together whether in an entry-level car, luxury car or S.U.V."

I'm really disappointed w/ this. Lexus already has a reputation for luxury & quality, where they need to grow is a reputation for high-performance. Lexus has the most reliable cars yet it seems like they’re saying they can't make high-performance cars while maintaining Lexus reliability.
