Recommended Posts




ok, well dont look like anyone agreed on anything, but i was told it means Luxury EXport to United States..

Some people think that's what it is, some people think that was made up afterwards.........personally I have no idea :)

Yes it does from what i've heard, and the IS stands for "Intelligent Sport". But forgot what the SE stands for.

SE usually stands for 'special equipment' but not sure........

If I recall correctly amongst early marketing bumph i've got, Lexus itself doesn't actually stand for anything as such though it's supposed to imply Luxury and Elegance, but it was a refinement of the original chosen name, Alexis.

And SE is Special Edition

It must be the Germans then that use SE to mean "special equipment"...........

Although why on earth would they call a model that isn't a special edition, a special edition? :blink:
