CSB: After coming back from Pinkberry with the family last night we all sat down to watch a movie about a girl with a dragon tattoo that seemed more about how swedes don't believe in central heating and adultery.
Before starting we finished up Fast Five which my younger siblings had been watching. My parents didn't mind as it was the end part with the dragging of the vault and bridge scene. After this we get to see what the fictional cast members spent money on. The Asian naturally bought a black LFA. So after that scene I toss a pop quiz out to the 6 other people surrounding me - what was that car just on screen.
My closest sister: Maserati? Ferrari? Lambo? Maserati oh I said that? Rolls Royce? Porsche? Corvette? I dunno!
My dad: Maserati?
My mother: It isn't sold in the USA I bet.
So I broke the news: Lexus. LFA. Yah really.
My dad: What???? No what is that.... looks up on his iPad. Oh wow is this new? Really been on sale awhile?.. hmmm Lexus has never had a sports car I don't know if I'd spend so much money on a company that has never built something like that....
So TCL - it has been some time since the LFA vs 1.8T and beyond died down.
- Has the LFA made an impact on the general public perception of Lexus?
- Has the LFA helped Lexus sales and or generated more interest from younger drivers?
- Has anyone you know shocked you by even knowing what an LFA is?
