Lexus is working to build its emotional appeal with a new large coupe, according to reports out of the US this week.
American website Inside Line reports that the new model will ride on the platform that underpins the brand's GS large sedan, utilising the same rear-wheel-drive layout.
Whether the new model would enter as a two-door variant in the GS range, like the E-Class sedan and coupe twins, or as a uniquely styled model along the lines of the 6 Series, is unclear.
As with its key rivals, the new coupe would likely share its powertrains and transmissions with the GS, ranging from a 154kW 2.5 litre V6 to the more powerful 233kW 3.5 litre V6.
The report adds that the debut of the coupe could come as soon as soon as early 2013, but until there's confirmation from Lexus, or spy a test car, we'd suggest you don't hold your breath.
