Lexus began as a secret program within Toyota designated as F1 in 1983. Wanting to create an upscale brand to compete with their European counterparts as well as Acura, the fledgling company with the same mission from Honda, Lexus debuted with their flagship vehicle, the LS in 1989. This well-appointed sedan quickly rewrote the rule books on luxury vehicles and made an immediate impact within the market, causing a 29% and 19% sales drop in Mercedes and BMW vehicles sold that year, respectively. Many recall a commercial boasting the smoothness of the LS 400, which revving on a dynamometer to 145 mph with champagne glasses perched precariously on the hood, yet never falling off. To this day, Lexus continues to set the precedence in automotive quality, comfort and design. Few automotive companies have ever even come close to matching the explosive start and lasting impression that Lexus has had on the industry.
