In 1992 the Lexus SC 300 joined the ES and LS series as the third offering from the new Japanese luxury automaker. Lexus had already established a reputation smooth smooth riding reliable luxury cars, but the stated goal of the new coupe was performance. However, the SC series' road manners would be met with mixed reviews for the next 15 years. During the first six years of production, the SC was available with a 5-speed manual transmission. While these SCs are a little harder to come by than the automatics, many drivers claim that the search is worthwhile.
The SC could be had with either a 3.0 liter inline six, or a more potent 4.0 liter V-8. The 300 housed the inline six cylinder engine, which made 225 horsepower. Despite its small stature and relatively modest power plant, the SC was also criticized for poor gas mileage, rated at 18 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway. The SC 300 was more affordable than the 400, due to the smaller engine and fewer standard features. Front end styling is also a little different from one model to the other. All SCs had rear wheel drive and a 2+2 notchback body which could seat two adults up from with great comfort, and two adults in the back with tolerable comfort.
The SC's 5-speed manual creates the most authentic GT driving experience, but it is hard to find. The SC's interior featured a stylish wrap around cockpit design, often acclaimed as the cars best attribute. Even the less expensive 300 was well appointed, with standard features like leather seats, walnut trim, and a CD player.
