Lexus IS F to be discontinued - report

Lexus has always favored luxury over performance, but the brand's IS F spiced things up by challenging the BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG.

Unfortunately, it appears the sun is setting on the IS F as USA Today is reporting the company will discontinue their last remaining high-performance model. There's no word on why the IS F is being dropped, but the publication says the company only managed to sell 486 units in the United States last year. This is obviously a tiny number, so it appears the company decided their customers weren't interested in going fast.

Despite being put on death watch, fans will still have a chance to buy an IS F as the company will reportedly keep the model on sale until the end of the year.
