Lexus IS F Models and IS F History

In 2008, Lexus announced the all-new IS F sports sedan. It was the reincarnation of the popular IS-series sedan, revived and revamped with more modernized features, better technology and a brand new and more attractive body style. It was powered by a bodacious 5.0-liter V8 engine that was a capable of delivering a whopping 416 horsepower. The 2009 model year only saw a few subtle changes made to various trims and an updated instrument panel and gauge cluster. In 2010, Lexus offered Bluetooth/iPod integration, added a new limited-slip differential and made the popular Safety Connect system part of the standard equipment list. In 2011, Lexus revamped the steering system, updated the suspension and introduced a brand new Torsen limited-slip differential. LED running lights were added as standard equipment and a new gauge cluster was introduced, alongside various trim enhancements and a new orange and black interior color scheme. Wider wheels and more color scheme options were the only notable changes for the 2012 model year. The Lexus Enform 2.0 with App Suite debuted in 2013 with a brand new GPS system and an upgraded suspension. Only minor updates graced the 2014 model, including a new rear spoiler that was made from carbon-fiber, and more luxurious and premium leather seating.
