It is something of a long-awaited homecoming for a brand that was originally conceived of as an American-focused creation: a way of attracting well-to-do American buyers with a moniker unburdened by the Toyota name’s middle-of-the-road image.
But Lexus vehicles have never been manufactured in the United States, until now. Adding the 50,000 Lexus ES 350 models to be produced each year will transform the Kentucky plant into the largest Toyota factory by volume in the world.
“It underscores just how important the American market is to Toyota, and how growing its manufacturing capability here is a key to its future success,” said Mike Jackson, director of North American product forecasting at IHS Automotive.
That Toyota, the world’s largest automaker, will have its largest factory in the American South is only the latest example of a building boom in the United States by foreign automakers like Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and others. Domestic automakers, by contrast, have resisted building new plants in the United States even as they have announced billions in new investments in their existing production facilities.

Lexus has formally confirmed its long-anticipated North American race program for 2016, with an expected IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship campaign for the newly announced F Performance Racing.
The WeatherTech Championship portion wasn’t officially announced in a media release, but was strongly hinted at.
The team name is a rebranding of RSR Racing, as past teammates Paul Gentilozzi and Scott Pruett have come together to form the program.
The V8-powered Lexus RC F GT3 will continue its testing and development program before a mid-to-late season debut for a limited schedule, in anticipation of a multi-car, full-season effort in 2017.
“A core mission of F Performance Racing was to strengthen the Lexus’ F brand by applying lessons gleaned from racing, while nurturing an engineering culture that transfers that knowledge to dynamic, high performance passenger car development,” said Jeff Bracken, group vice president and general manager, Lexus division.
“We are very excited about what this partnership and race effort can mean for the brand in the years to come,”
For Pruett, it marks the official end of his tenure at Chip Ganassi Racing, after racing with the team in either the GRAND-AM Rolex Series or IMSA’s TUDOR United SportsCar Championship since 2004. He’ll likely go for a record sixth overall win at next year’s Rolex 24 at Daytona with another Prototype entrant.
“When Lexus left motorsports, I pledged to them that I would be there to help them return when that time came,” Pruett said.
“That time is now and I could not be more ecstatic to be representing Lexus as a performance brand ambassador and on the track in the F Performance RC F GT3.”
Gentilozzi, who has put his PC equipment up for sale, looks forward to the reunion and a return to the GT ranks for the first time since the ill-fated Jaguar RSR program, which ended at the conclusion of 2011 in what is now the GT Le Mans class (then American Le Mans Series GT).
“An opportunity to reunite with North America’s greatest sports car driver and a great friend, Scott Pruett and Lexus, a globally prestigious brand validating their performance potential, is a racer’s dream,” Gentilozzi said.
“(It’s) one that would put an exclamation point on anyone’s motorsports career.”
