TORRANCE, California — The Lexus F, a new performance model from Toyota's upscale brand, will debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

Lexus released a single teaser photo of the new F on Monday.

A Lexus spokesman said no details — not even model-year designation — are available at this point.

"It's just a teaser," said Bill Kwong, a Lexus spokesman, in a phone conversation.

Kwong did confirm that the "F" designation stands for "Fuji Speedway," a location outside of Tokyo where Lexus tests its performance products.

A Lexus statement described the Lexus F as an "all-new performance model engineered from scratch."

"The newest F model promises a bold, gritty experience synonymous with the famed Lexus F heritage," it said.

The F badging first showed up in 2008 on the Lexus IS F sedan, which targets the BMW M3. The 2014 Lexus IS F starts at $64,510. The 2014 Lexus RX 350 F Sport starts at $48,535.

F Sport models get additions including Brembo brakes and larger wheels and tires.

Edmunds says: Lexus is set to rev up its F lineup as it takes aim at the BMW M and Mercedes-Benz AMG performance divisions.
