    If you consider sales a fail.. but they never intended for it to sell like their other model. Other than that, the LFA is an amazing machine and definitely NOT a fail, in any way.

      To me, this is the true successor to the last generation Supra. Although way more expensive, this is what the Supra should've been.

      Wait, I just said it is the true, Supra! Lexus Supra!

            You're correct Lexus took too long to release the LFA, Still as you mentioned it's remenance is seen on its F performance cars, LC , RCF , GSF, and a.few on the ISF, not sure if its still on development but the awaited LCF. Lexus is always on the pursuit to perfection. Except they forget to overlook some of their engine flaws, specially on the 2008-2012 ISF N/A V-8 motors, the valley plate will leak at certain amount of miles, or if the car is always being pushed through its limits. The engine was designed by Yamaha, I still think that Lexus should place a recall on it's ISF for this particular flaw. It costs over $2000 at any Lexus/Toyota dealership to replace 2 o-rings , rubber sealants. Parts that are at $60 or less. I bought my 2012 ISF at 12,000 miles , it was a show car and was garaged kept most of its life, now at 30,000 miles used as my daily and a few street racing, I have a valley plate leak. So for me to say that Lexus is truly on the pursuit to perfection, they should recall and fix most of not all their ISF V8 performance engine flaws. And to be honest with you the newer Lexus performance cars are heavier and hideous they have good tech no doubt, seems like someone with a mid life crisis would want to buy just to get attention, "Hey look at my scary ass lexus, but I am hotter check me out"!!! I can careless how people say the 2nd Gen IS and ISF looks boring, compare to the newer Lexus models all I want to know is Why? What direction is the persuit to perfection heading to? If you can get Lexus USA to recall and fix the valley plate leak kudos to you, for now until my parts come in I've already spent over $300 in coolant alone, Napa Guam is making good money from me. 2 gallons of coolant per week at $11.30 for the past 6 months until I did a thorough research and found out I have a valley plate leak. Only way to know is to look under the cars carriage and transmission area where theres pink slushy residue.

                                  The problem with Japanese super cars is that they are always underpowered to compete with the rest of the market. Just look at the NSX.

                                      Best sounding engine EVER ! Gorgeous car & a supercar no doubt. Unfortunately the weight of the car given all the CF is just bizarre. Also if it was $200K, it would still be here today. At $400K no one would/did buy it. Wonder what the lease payments were for them, like $6K/Month.
