They should attempt a Mega Cruiser in the North American market again.

Toyota has too many rare cars that Americans never got a chance to drive,

While Lexus is premium, it will never be as premium as its German counterparts. They still cant make decent diesels, they still cant use high quality interior materials etc etc.

They can't make a coupe.

They currently sell zero coupes under the Toyota brand.

FR-S is a Subaru.

There is no reason to have back seat doors.

I drive a Toyota Camry but their cars are notoriously boring. No more Supra since 2002 and they also don't make anything to compete in the hot hatch segment. They have never made a decent sports sedan even under the Lexus brand (inb4 automatic only ISF). They are great at being reliable point A to B cars but they put almost zero effort into performance compared to their much less wealthy Japanese rivals and it shows in their car lineup.

Wait, does this mean they could just swap a few things around and they could pump out RWD Camry and Corrolla?

They also made the most successful hybrid and pioneered new hybrid technology. And they have absurd amounts of money because of it

They kind of did this with the Toyota Mark X. It uses the same drivetrain from Lexus IS250 IIRC

RHD only though. Just like all the coolest Toyota sedans

It is Lexus LC. Are you blind?

@TalkBomber

it is possible, but not easy. However, some parts like transmission could be swapped.

For example: $25K Prius shift in $100k Lexus LS. It can be done, but not easy.

I get that you would have to redesign the body and engine bay, but this system would have made it easier to pull an actual AE86, no? Main line FWD with RWD coupe

not a concept. It's had two generations. And yeah, auto only unfortunately. Although one of the second gens has a supercharged 3GR.

Make a crossover that isn't fucking boring, even by crossover standards. The segment is notoriously boring but they manage to take it and just make it even more mediocre.

Put the engine in the right place for it to actually be a supercar.

Still produce a halo car.

Make a current hot hatch.

Design a new Supra without just putting a body kit on a BMW

Design a new entry-level sports car without needing the help of Subaru

Designing anything sporty without the help of anyone

@PurpleCharger
No, they just marketed it the best. Their systems have some fundamental flaws (especially the lack of PHEVs), but their marketing was spot on when they started with the Prius. Even normies know that it's a hybrid, it's good on gas, and you should drive one if you want to show everyone how good to the environment you are.

As much as I'm a Lexus/Toyota fanboy I'd say the best econobox is probably the Mazda 2/3

Funny how the Camry is a econobox in the US, but is considered a luxury car in other countries, alongside the Jetta and Accord.
