  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Yep, the New Lexus Coupe Will Get a Hybrid Model: the LC500h

Recommended Posts



Whenever there’s a new Lexus model on the way, odds are pretty good that there will be a hybrid version. In the case of the LC500, the new flagship coupe unveiled last month, that’s true once again, as Lexus has just announced the LC500h.

Lexus already offers hybrid versions of six other models: the NX, RX, ES, GS, LS, and the hybrid-only CT200h.


As of yet, there’s little word from Lexus about the new LC hybrid, other than the fact that it will exist. Lexus is saying only that the LC500h will feature the company’s “next-generation hybrid powertrain, the Lexus Multi-Stage Hybrid System.” It remains to be seen whether that’s something all-new, or an evolution of the hybrid system in one of its current models. If it’s the latter, it could be a version of the system in the GS450h, which utilizes a 3.5-liter Atkinson-cycle V-6 and a pair of electric motors to produce a combined 338 horsepower, or it could be derived instead from the LS600hL powertrain, in which the engine is 5.0-liter V-8 and total system output is 438 horsepower.


The standard, non-hybrid LC500 features a 5.0-liter V-8 good for 467 horsepower, funneled through a 10-speed automatic an on to the rear wheels. The seventh member of the Lexus hybrid family will make its debut next month at the Geneva auto show.
