Anybody ever drive one of these? I saw one at the bank a couple weeks ago and really liked it and have looked them up online and they seem to be really nice cars. The interior looks beautiful and I like the exterior styling aswell. From what I have heard they are a blast to drive with excellent handling and very strong brakes to go with it. Also heard the engine is in a way similar to a N*, smooth, quite and powerful. I am curious to know if this is all true.
I'm a little surprised to hear that there wasn't much handling or power. Most of what I read said it had power and handled like a touring car. Although what I did read was from Lexus owners on Edmunds and Lexus forums so they may be a little biased. But I guess I'll have to drive one myself to see the power it has.
The IS300 in stock trim is nothing special but the modability of this car is great. It uses the same engine from the Toyota Supra so there is PLENTY of aftermarket to get it to haul ass. My buddy back in high school had his all hooked up with a HKS turbo kit on it and that car was fast as hell.........until he flipped it
