Ten years after the first introduction the premium Lexus line on the US market, the Toyota-owned Japanese premium brand was leading the luxury market with greater sales than Cadillac, Lincoln, BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

The combination of brilliant marketing decisions and implementation had a lot to do with that success; but it is the daring boldness of Toyota’s top Management that had made everything else possible :

For its first Lexus, Toyota gave their 1,400 engineers and 2,300 technicians and blank check. To give some perspective, that was about over a half of number of people assigned to work on the first Boeing 777 jumbo line in the 1990’s.

The first Lexus took six years and one billion dollars to build.

A strategy is a coordinated and integrated set of where-to-play, how-to-win, core capability, and management system choices that uniquely meet a consumer’s needs, thereby creating competitive advantage and superior value for a business.

Strategy is a way to win—and nothing less.

From 20,000 sold units on the first year to 300,000 the following one, how a brand which was born out of a brainstorming session at Toyota in 1983 jumped over the competition so successfully?

The first Lexus took six years and one billion dollars to build.

He said that he told his crew to spend as much money as they needed to, but the company would not be willing to put a dime into building a maintenance network in the U.S. because it expected the car to never break because of all the funds that were being put into it.
