Toyota To Cancel Next-Gen Lexus SC

Written by tonks on July 14, 2008

Lexus SCToyota is cancelling the next-generation Lexus SC convertible/coupe model. It has always been one of the fewer Lexus models to sell and has been dragging them down long enough. They will be replacing it with a newer performance flagship – the LF-A supercar for the 2009 model year.

The 2008 SC 430 is priced at $67,120. It is fitted with a 288-horsepower 4.3-liter V8 that is rated by the EPA at 16 mpg in city driving and 23 on the highway.

Toyota had been developing a successor to the SC, based on the same rear-wheel-drive platform as the LF-A. Originally slated for production in early 2009, the next-generation SC was pushed back to mid-2011 and now has been canceled.
