GR GT3 Concept “Inspiration” for Future Lexus Entry

Toyota Gazoo Racing’s GR GT3 Concept is likely to serve as “inspiration” for a future Lexus GT3 car according to Lexus Motorsports manager Jeff Bal and Toyota Racing Development President David Wilson, who are “quite confident” of having a successor to the Lexus RC F GT3.



Unveiled last month at the Tokyo Auto Salon, the GR GT3 Concept has not been based on any current Toyota or Lexus production car, although it’s believed to form the foundation of a yet-to-be-announced model that would also see GT3 competition by as early as 2024.



When asked by Sportscar365 if the GR GT3 Concept could be of a sign of what’s to come from Lexus, Wilson said: “The easy answer is yes. You can connect the dots and be pretty optimistic.



“I’m quite confident that there will be a successor to our Lexus RC F. From a timeline standpoint, we don’t know yet.



“We’re now in our sixth year with the RC F. I think our last Evo was 2020. It’s getting long in the tooth but if you check the FIA homologation website, it’s homologated through 2026.
