1999 Lexus Sport Coupe

This aluminum hardtop convertible concept vehicle embodies luxury and emotion. Everything about this aluminum hardtop roadster screams production – as in spring 2001 – but Toyota insists the Lexus Sport Coupe concept is just that. The Sport Coupe, designed in Europe and engineered by the same Toyotan that penciled the GS sedans, offers a V-8 engine and five-speed automatic transmission to power its speedster shape, which looks more curvaceous and subtle than digital photos would suggest. The Sport Coupe has swaths of wood covering its dash and console, and the 2+2 rear seats look at least large enough to hold children. Lexus promises the trunk, even with the hardtop retracted, will have a set of golf clubs.
