2019 Lexus LC vs. Its Competition

2019 Lexus LC image

The 2019 Lexus LC can’t decide whether it’s a sports car or luxury coupe, and therefore has a handful of established and new competitors from every direction.

BMW has resurrected the 8-Series nameplate, and with a sleek design and powerful engines, it’s sure to sweep up sales.

The Jaguar F-Type only seats two, but in terms of style and performance, it’s a close competitor to the Lexus.

The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has been largely forgotten even by its own brand but is still the standard-bearer for long-distance cruising luxury two-doors.

The Nissan GT-R is another relative dinosaur in the segment, but its performance value is unmatched for the money.

No talk of luxury sports cars would be complete without mentioning the Porsche 911, which is still the benchmark after all these years.

A new model arrives for 2020, however.
