Toyota La Coupe Prototype Is Real And Really Weird (Official Update)

We reached out to Toyota and spoke to Senior Manager Nancy Hubbell about the La Coupe. She said that it’s an internal study from the carmaker’s Japanese division with no plans for getting it on the road. “It was just a concept study and they had to get some patents on it to show it in public,” Hubbell told Carscoops. “It was designed for Japan audiences and there's no talk of putting it into production.” (Update 4/18/2019)

The Lexus Of Minivans Is Really Coming, LM Name Confirmed

Some automakers are saying no to people carriers and instead, focusing their efforts on giving customers even more crossovers and SUVs. But not Lexus. In fact, the Japanese automaker will be launching its first-ever minivan at the Shanghai Auto Show later this month.

Can You Really Compare The New Lexus LC To The Old LFA?

Under ordinary circumstances, comparing the Lexus LFA with the new LC500 would be like putting a Ferrari 812 Superfast up against a BMW 6 Series (or a BMW M760Li against a Skoda Superb). Hardly a fair fight, in other words. But these aren't ordinary circumstances.

The All-new 2018 Nissan Leaf Is Off To A Really Hot Start

The All-New 2018 Nissan Leaf is Off to a Really Hot Start

According to a recent report, the 2018 Nissan Leaf is already a success in Europe and Japan.

While it’s difficult to get definitive sales figures for international markets, InsideEVs reports Nissan has received over 19,000 orders for the new Leaf in Japan alone. And while that pales in comparison to the Tesla Model 3’s reported pre-order figure of over 400,000, the 2018 Nissan Leaf orders are a different story. That’s because, in Japan, all the paperwork is already set when an “order” is placed; all Nissan has to do is deliver the vehicle. In other words, it’s not the same as putting down a $1,000 refundable deposit, which is the case with the Tesla Model 3.
