2007 Lexus IS 250 from North America
My 1984 Supra was a more impressive car
I am having great difficulty achieving a graceful launch from a stand-still. The engine is reluctant to respond to the accelerator pedal without a load. I must "ride" the clutch ever so slightly in order to get an adequate response from the engine before fully engaging the clutch, and by that time an automatic would have left me in the dust! What fun is that?
Can anybody say 'frustrating'?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

If you wanted performance then you should have gone for the IS350 model. You cannot compare the IS250 with Supra.

Really? So you can't rev the engine without the engine being under load?
