Lexus IS-F Model Years

The Lexus IS F—a high-performance version of the compact IS sedan—debuted in 2008. Exterior modifications are tasteful and discreet: It features aggressive bulges in the fenders and hood, while a quad exhaust and rear spoiler suggest sportier intent.

With the help of a 416-horsepower 5-liter V8, the IS F screams to 60 mph in fewer than 5 seconds. The eight-speed automatic transmission works better in manual mode, but it's difficult to fault handling that makes the four-seat sedan feel like a sports car.

The IS F is still in its first generation, and has seen few changes. Significantly, though, the unrelentingly harsh ride of the first few years has been ironed out.

Major changes included:

In 2008, Lexus added a high-performance model to its IS lineup and named it the IS-F. The first-generation IS F maintained all of the IS's main design qualities, but it featured a sportier body kit and wheels. Under its hood, the IS-F came standard with a 5-liter V8 that produced 416 horsepower and 371 pound-feet of torque that was mated to an eight-speed transmission. In 2011, the IS-F gained a lightly revised interior, as well as a revised suspension an steering system, and a Torsen limited-slip differential.
