So I was by Beverly Hills today and decided to pick this up on a whim as weekend car..

Lexus LC500 Convertible in a rare and also beautiful color.

just kidding about buying it; it was marked up over 50% to 159k!!

To be honest, if I was super wealthy I would get a fully loaded long range Tesla model S with full self driving hardware and just let It drive me around everywhere.

I think my days of driving flashy cars are over.

But I still appreciate nice looking cars.

I got a chance to drive the coupe version on Sonoma Raceway when I used to work for Lexus.
Grips really well and turns are sharp. You can really feel the heavy weight of the vehicle but the suspension manages it well. They are great on track but better on the street, typical Lexus smoothness over bumpy roads.

Unrelated: There’s an article recently on Porsche 992 gen 911’s retractable door handle that won’t pop-out if the car battery dies. The Lexus LC will actually use the very last amount of energy to pop the door handles out, so you can open the hood to jump. That’s some thoughtful programming.

That’s funny.. I was actually thinking for around 150k, if I would get a Porsche convertible or this.. that one specific battery/door handle issue is not a deal breaker but kind of hints at the kind of thought that was put into each car..

If you can get this car for sticker vs a comparable Porsche convertible, I’d take this car.. to me looks much better than any Porsche and is much more rare..except I didn’t like the wheels on this blue LC that much..

Some of you may remember the Lexus LFA ( the only super car ever made by alexus ). This dealership has a brand new (not for sale) 2012 LFA. Amazing car!!!

I heard a celebrity offered 800k for it but owner turned it down.

What good is an exotic car thread on a Honda forum without a Honda exotic.

2020 Indy Yellow Pearl Acura NSX (new color for 2020).. somewhat affordable super car at around 160k and no mark up..

@South Coast Plaza (an upscale mall in SoCal) at the Porsche store..

Porsche Taycan Turbo (all electric). I heard Bill Gates snubbed Tesla over this (although he is known to be a Porsche guy)..This car has a air purifier /ionizer built in, which I believe Tesla doesn’t.

Around 160k and 200 mile range..Interesting that all the cars I posted are around 160k (with exception of LC500 convertible, which was marked up, but still..also the LFA..) So if you have 160k lying around, you know what to do..
