When I think of automakers trying to be cutting edge, my mind doesn't think of the stupid concepts like the Volkswagen Beetle buggy thing or another stupidly powerful station wagon.
I think of these new niches being created.
Since the advent of the Mercedes-Bnez CLS it seems more than ever people want a cool looking car. The average four-door sedan is now "square."
With cars as gorgeous as the Audi A7, BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe and Aston Martin Rapide, it's hard to argue that point. When we think of who's next to join the four-door coupe party, the Japanese players have seemingly sat this round out. Where is Infiniti and Lexus, already? Though Subaru showed off that sexual WRX Concept at the New York Auto Show, we saw how that ended — badly.
Well, it turns out that the Photoshop wizard, Theophilus Chin, has been toiling away on a Lexus RC four-door coupe he's dubbed the RC GT.
And you know what, it looks SOLID.
Of course, only one question remains: does Lexus have the brass to pull this off or is this simply a dream that will never crystallize?
