[ LC 500 convertible takes Lexus style to new heights, but don’t mistake it for a sports car ]
Lexus LC 500 convertible was developed to wow the crowd when you arrive for dinner or a day on the lake. It also is a bit of a bargain.
If a better looking car than the Lexus LC 500 convertible goes on sale this year, I’m not sure mortal eyes will be able to withstand the sight. Like those who stare too long at the sun, the convertible’s owners may be blinded, unable to acknowledge even the existence of average-looking vehicles.
It’s a fine flagship for a brand historically more associated with rational appeal ‘ great dealers and reliability ‘ than “gotta have it”‘passion.
The LC 500 isn’t a sports cars, its swooping lines and rumbling exhaust notwithstanding. It wasn’t developed to run fast laps, but to wow the crowd when you arrive for dinner or a day on the lake.

The Best Sports & Performances Cars Of The 2010s
The third post in our best cars of the decade series is all about sports and performance cars. This is a fun list to create because most of these cars have taken their hit in depreciation and are relative bargains compared to when they first rolled off the lot. This’is a celebration of the cars that are ‘somewhat’ affordable and achievable for most pundits.
To qualify for our best sports cars of the 2010s, a car had to be under the ~$150k mark when new and had to be launched as a 2010 to 2019 model year vehicle. We do have some cars that snuck in above the $150k mark but we felt they belonged here rather than our best supercar list. The 2010s MY requirement means we left off 2020 models like the 718 Cayman GT4, Boxster Spyder and 2020 mid-engined Corvette.’
