Default Toyota Registers LFA With US Patent And Trademark Office




Quote:
There's been speculation lately the Lexus LFA supercar might be getting the axe due to US economic conditions but a filing with the US Patent and Trademark Office suggests otherwise. On December 1, 2008, Toyota Motor Company registered the trademark number 77623634 for the term "LFA," no dash as in the past "LF-A," to be used with "Automobiles and structural parts thereof." Now, this doesn't mean the LFA is absolutely, positively going into production, as automakers regularly place dibs on all kinds of names. It does mean that if the car does see the light of day we won't have to call it something else

Because the Supra was a sports car, and this is a world-fighting supercar?
