The 2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible Is the Coolest Car Nobody Will Buy

The 2021 Lexus LC500 Convertible is really cool -- but nobody is going to buy it. Today I explain why nobody will buy the LC500 Convertible, and I'm also reviewing the LC Convertible to show all the quirks and features. I'm also going to drive the Lexus LC500 Convertible and tell you what it's like on the road.

    Nice car but there is something about it, that is why it doesn’t sell. Too bad, Lexus spent a lot of time on it.

    come on man, how is the coupe segment dying?...just because you're getting old, you would want an suv like anyone in your generation or older who are starting a family. but you can't talk for everyone by saying no body would buy them. I'm the same gen as you, and only recently I started liking suvs just because they're convenient for a family. but coupe like this are still my fave car to take my girl on a date, without the kids lol

    In order to maximize convenient cargo carrying, it needs custom fit luggage for the back seats and the trunk. The luggage should not have branding on it. Perhaps the rear light material is cheap because some will bump into things and it makes it cheaper to replace.

    I have lc coupe and my lease is going to expire in two weeks. I am not going to keep it or trade for new model convertible. This car is odd that not a true sports car nor family car. This time i will go with either x7 or Q8. We are definitely living in S.U.V era. It needs to stay in a garage when snowing. I dare to drive it in snow because damage would be too costly. If you want a real sports car, look at porche instead. Oh did i mention it didnt have apple car play or android for this price.

If you remember the sound of the 1950s and 1960s muscle cars, the today's high performance machines really don't measure up. Still, the car is gorgeous.

  54. Joseph Roach

    Joseph Roach21 יום לפני

    Irks me because everyone is buying the c8 at 85k before dealer markup because “magnariiiiiiiide” and “zeeeeeeee51” The coupe version of the lc500 comes in at 80ish before sports packages that I’d skip (carbon trash) and is the better buy than the convertible, I refuse to consider any soft top convertible. Real shame they don’t go somewhat more cockpit like the c8 inside (driver facing center dash lower controls better visibility), with that, a wide always up optional wing, and some eye popping bright metallic colors they’d get noticed by everyone, it would compete with the c8 for sure, and yet be stupidly more cheap to run than that mid engine GM plexiglass thing which will be driven by youtubers and bought by boomers. The z06 c8 will be another car altogether, once again dumb options will push the actual sale price over 100k but it will be a budget ferrari and the only thing better than a NA v8, is a fpc NA v8. But that’s for another day...

    I've seen the coupe version. Absolutely love it! And by the way it was an older man driving it 🤣😂 he was driving around the parking lot showing it off. The coupe version resembles the nearly 10 year old LFA which is one of my all time favorite cars! But anyways there are tons of other luxury cars to choose from around that price or less when slightly used. For example a bmw m4, bmw m6, mercedes c63 amg, and the maserati grandturismo. I would prefer one of these first over the lc500. By the way that exhaust not i was not expecting from a lexus! Absolutely dope! Almost sounds a bit like a mustang gt350 or gt500. I think lexus was trying to make this car as much as an lfa as possible. Especially how the whole dash and tachometer is designed.

    The fact that I'm seeing so many comments saying the LC500 is not a proper sports car and should have at least 600+ hp for its v8. Its meant to be a GT car that is for cruising and the fact that it'll probably last a lot longer than all of us. It's sort of like saying you expect the BMW M series, Audi RSs or the Mercedes AMGs to be a comfortable car when it has sports suspensions which is essentially firm not cushy. Also, none of those three companies have NA engines giving the raw power, they all have twin turbos and the current Lexus with a twin turbo engine is for their Luxury sedan, LS500, which is not built for performance
