I don't think any of the "cylindrical type" knobs go flush on any car that has it...if it did, how would one unlock it manually?? Correct me if im wrong, or show me an example.

Again, I know the GTR and a few other cars have a rectangular type knob that when locked, and the top get's flush...it can still be manually unlocked. There is a "hook" in the design of the knob to allow a manual unlock. See what I mean:

This is the interior of the Lexus LC500, if you look closely it is locked and all the way down. Newer cars go flush, Porsche, Audi, VW, Italian cars don’t even have a lock “knob” just the button to unlock and lock the car.

How does one manually (not electronically) unlock a flush mounted knob like that? I believe those higher end cars are electronically controlled unlocking only no? I don’t think the MKV Supra will have that type of locking mechanism (based on what we see so far)....that’s why I’m saying I don’t think it will be flush when locked. Who knows, that might be pre-production indeed. Only time will tell.

Lexus has never used an unlock/lock knob on top of the door like the Germans and some American brands.. They have always used a stylized version of Toyota's very simple lock knob/handle combo ever since the launch of the first LS..



the LC 500 merely has a lock indicator light on the door, it isn't a knob

Incorrect. I’ve been in a handful of new lexuses, it’s a knob, a small knob that locks and unlocks like Mercedes and BMW. The only ones that aren’t are the old IS, GS, GX, NX. Even the updated LX570 interior has the knob

no.....


I think I've been in every Lexus model (all gens) except the LFA, never seen one with the knob on the top of the door..

I thought the same too....I could have sworn those were LED’s that would flash to indicate the alarm system active or not.

Here’s a BMW f80 M3, if you are completely nit picky it’s not entirely “flush” but close lol. I assume the Supra will be similar. We shall see.

Go look again, I was just driving a LC500 last wk = )

In fact the LFA started it.

I’m willing to take bets if you like lol

Not talking “old” Lexuses either, the new ones like RX, LC500, LS, and updated LX570 interior.

I am not arrogant, lol. I was simply stating I was driving a Lc500 last wk.

Go look at the lexus cars I mentioned.....

You claim that no lexuses have that sort of lock, I stated the cars I’ve mentioned that do.

You still claiming “all” lexuses don’t use the door knob lock?
