There are growing rumors of a possible Supra SUV, which to me indicates that Toyota could care less about the legacy of that badge. Pretty sad to see considering the amount of long term enthusiasts...

I've come across some fairly adventurous builds for the LC500, which makes sense considering many are looking to make it a track weapon. Doesn't need a widebody imo, but it does look a lot cleaner...

A lot of people are making the argument that the LC could have been the right platform for the MKV. Toyota would have to remove some of the bells and whistles to bring the price closer to $100k but...

Unless you are seeing unusual tire wear, is there a particular reason why you are moving away from the Michelin run flats? Might be worth moving down to 20's to improve ride quality a bit.
