2008 Lexus IS-F


Some observers still expected the LF-A to bow with an exotic, high-power hybrid powertrain. Instead, that would be the Toyota FT-HS, which also incorporated the letter ‘F’ and seemed to confuse even the representatives working the Lexus stand, who told us where “the hybrid sports car” would be. The edgy FT-HS, with a 400-hp performance hybrid system, may end up being the long-awaited replacement for the Supra.
