Saw pictures of the first generation IS in wagon form, or SportСross according to Lexus, I wonder if the rear can be shortened and make this the only premium RWD hatch of the early millennia. While the overall styling is dated by now, I like these renderings. I think the hatchback IS looks rather cool.
Instead of a facelift, with so many criticism towards the IS headlights design, what if the IS gets a more conventional set of “eyes’?
I’m surprised the hatchback variant works with the IS styling. If only Lexus drops the CT for this instead.

Before the 3rd generation was launched, Lexus had already confirmed on building the LF-CC Concept, itself a preview of the IS Coupe. The eventual IS Coupe is expected to reach showroom in 2015.
So, many speculate that the Lexus LF-CC Concept previews the next IS-Series. I hope the next IS looks better than my half-hearted rendering here.
