    Lexus exceeds LS600h sales target by three hundred percent

    Even I'm kinda surprised...

    Remember when the Lexus LS 600h was on the way, and there was head-scratching aplenty about the $100K+ price and the delay? At the time, Lexus said it only planned to sell 2,000 of the hybrid cruisers per year, and that they already had orders for 1,650 of them. Then the car came out, and in spite of being treated rather unkindly by the motoring press and boasting a less-than-stellar MPG improvement, it has sold 6,093 worldwide through October. The car only went on sale in July.

    Seeing how many luxo-barges topping $100K roam this earth, I'm surprised they don't sell more. All those self-indulgent snots can now sleep at night.

    I think they look nice (not great, not awesome, but "nice") inside and out, and they've got tons of luxury features and they're very, very advanced, but they lack that "WOW! I NEED this car" feel that other luxury cars have.

    Honestly, I could see myself buying one of these current generation LS's, but it would be an LS460. I don't see the point of a hybrid drivetrain in a car of this magnitude.
    "They call Alabama the Crimson Tide, call me Deacon Blues."

    Current:
    1992 Lincoln Town Car Cartier Edition (5/14- ?)
    2014 Honda Accord LX MTX Sedan (1/14 -?)

    Past:
    1995 Buick Roadmaster Limited (4/04-12/04)
    1992 Cadillac Sedan deVille (12/04-9/07)
    1999 Mercedes Benz S320 (8/07-7/09)
    2000 Buick Regal GS (7/09-4/12)
    2003 Mercury Marauder (4/12-10/13)
    1991 Buick LeSabre Custom Sedan (9/12-6/13)
    2013 Honda Accord LX Sedan (6/13-1/14)

    Lexus 'people' are vast in quantity and wealth. Even the useless hybrid version is a huge upgrade over the last generation. Of course its selling beyond expectations.
