Lexus – http://lexus.com/
In 1983, Toyota chairman Eiji Toyoda determined that the time was right for Toyota to produce a luxury automobile. He decided that this new vehicle would be the finest luxury car in the world, offering speed, safety, comfort, elegance, dignity and beauty. This ultimate automobile also had to be accompanied by unprecedented levels of customer service that greatly exceeded the expectations of current luxury car buyers. The first Lexus, the flagship LS 400, was introduced in fall 1989, setting a new standard for luxury cars around the world. Since that historic launch, Lexus introduced the ES, SC, GS and IS. In the following years, Lexus introduced the LX, GX and RX Luxury Utility Vehicles. Always a leader in technology, Lexus launched the luxury hybrids, the RX Hybrid, GS Hybrid and LS Hybrid, as well as the high-performance IS F sedan. With a complete line of automobiles that are unsurpassed in their respective classes and a philosophy that puts the customer first, Lexus will continue to forge ahead pursuing perfection to set new precedents, and carry out the legacy first established by Eiji Toyoda more than 50 years ago.

Founded by Judd Carriker, the original store was located in the Orange traffic circle in the city of Orange. Judd acquired the Indian franchise, moved Carriker Motors to a new location at Main St. and Palmyra and became the west coast racing and sales headquarters for this famous marque. In 1939, Joe Koons joined Judd forming Carriker and Koons. Koons left in 1949 and Judd became a sole proprietor and moved up Main St. to a new location (currently the location of the Main Place Mall). In 1953 Irv Seaver, who was a young Indian enthusiast, bought out Judd. Irv set his sights on a new location and product. That location became the Southland’s most modern motorcycle store in 1957. With the updated facility came the addition of the world’s finest motorcycles, BMW. In 1959 an eager Evan Bell was hired and began learning the ins and outs of the motorcycle business. Evan not only learned the business, he also loved it. On January 1st, 1979 he purchased the dealership and retained the Irv Seaver name.

FROM 1957 TO THE 21ST CENTURY…TOYOTA MOVING FORWARD WITH AMERICA
In 1957, when Toyota first came to America, Elvis was king of rock n’ roll, big cars with tailfins were “in” and postage stamps were just 3 cents. After a poor start with a car called the “Toyopet,” Toyota came back strong in 1965 with the popular 90-horsepower Corona sedan. Then there was the Corolla, Camry, Toyota trucks, the Lexus luxury brand, Scion, and the world’s first gas/electric hybrid Prius… a car we built for the 21st century. Along the way, we’ve learned a lot and enjoyed the support of American consumers who have embraced the quality, dependability and reliability of our vehicles. Today, Toyota is one of the top-selling brands in America and we are committed to continuous improvement in everything we do, along with breakthrough products for the future. We’re proud to share some highlights of our 50 years of progress and history here.

From 2011, McLaren Automotive will launch the first of its new range of technologically advanced high performance sports cars. These cars will break new ground in driving dynamics, automotive technology, Formula 1 process transfer, and performance, but their future success lies in the roots of a company steeped in a rich motorsport history. Today, McLaren is a technology organisation consisting of six companies within the McLaren Technology Centre (Woking, England): McLaren Automotive, and five businesses within the McLaren Group.
The McLaren organisation has broadened its field of operations and its range of competences progressively since 1980 when Ron Dennis merged his Project 4 organisation with the McLaren racing team. The process of corporate growth based on motor racing success resulted in more business locations being added to the McLaren portfolio. Ultimately, it became clear that the McLaren Group would need a new facility in which all McLaren companies could be housed under the same roof, enabling better communication within and between them, thereby improving performance.
