since the BMW M4 will be a I6 3.0 engine turbo with 430 HP, I bet Lexus will do with a about the same...maybe a re-incarnation of the 2JZ-GTE with more than 400 BHP...or a version of the upcoming Lexus 2.0L Turbo engine heavily tuned with twin-turbo or supercharged+turbo, with 400 bhp...

Doubt it that they would put LFA's V10 in it. A little too exotic for a car in this price range.

Roomers in the Lexus comunity says the 350 will have a 4 cylinder turbo. also the F will be the same engine as the current ifs, but slightly tuned to push put a bit more power.
