About the Lexus SC 300

Lexus introduced the first generation of SC coupes in 1992.  Two models were available: the V-8 SC 400 and the I-6 SC 300.  The SC embodied the Japanese luxury automaker's effort to insert LS series luxury into a high performance grand touring coupe.  All SCs utilized a 2+2 notchback body design placed atop rear wheel drive.

The SC 300 was an American luxury version of Toyota's foreign market Soarer.  Steering, transmission, and ride were refined to better suit the preferences of luxury car drivers.  Over-responsive steering was a common driver issue with the first model, but it was quickly resolved in the following model year.  The SC featured the same 3.0 liter inline six engine throughout its run, which made 225 horsepower.  Engine torque was upgraded from 210 to 220 lb-ft in 1998.  Performance data are a bit inconsistent but drivers could typically expect a 0-60 time of 7 seconds, and a complete quarter mile in just under 16.  There was slight variance in fuel economy depending on automatic or manual transmission, but on average the SC 300 was good for 18/22 mpg.

Drivers fell in love with the very sporty and ergonomic interior layout, with a cockpit that provides a wrap around feel.  Clever luxury features, like the telescoping steering wheel for comfortable entry and exit, were found throughout the SC.  Drivers also acclaimed the precise suspension, which offered an ideal balance between a sport car road feel and a smooth luxury car ride.  The SC 300 was consistently nagged by outperforming competitors (like the M3) which raised questions about the GT coupe's true value in its class.  While the SC is no slug, it was clearly marketed more for its luxury than performance.  The SC 400 was a bit more quick and nimble.
