Jeff's Lexus is a compact luxury sedan that is one of his most prized possessions (along with his cellphone). He has owned the car for several years; it's one of the few luxury items he got to keep after being disbarred and served as a reminder of the life he had before Greendale as a high priced defense attorney. Its first appearance was the Season One episode "Spanish 101". It was last seen in the Season Four episode "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations".
On Jeff's first day of school, he reluctantly traded his Lexus to Professor Duncan for what he believed to have been the answers to all his tests for that semester. He takes it back when he found out Duncan tricked him ("Pilot"). Sometime later, Jeff parked his Lexus in a faculty spot after swiping a parking pass from a teachers vehicle ("Spanish 101"). After missing a few payments on his condo, Jeff was kicked out and forced to live in his car. When the Lexus was towed away he was temporarily forced to move in with Abed in his dorm room ("Home Economics"). Jeff agreed to join the Greendale Debate team after the Dean offered him an official faculty parking spot ("Debate 109"). when Pierce challenged Jeff to find a date he hooks up with Jeff with the Dean's new assistant Sabrina Shmuckle. The two ended up making out inside Jeff's Lexus but he lost interest in her and sarcastically gives her his car ("The Politics of Human Sexuality"). In order to avoid talking about his relationship with Britta to his friends, Jeff bailed on a study group meeting and took a nap in his Lexus ("Modern Warfare"). Thinking that Jeff was behind his firing, Ben Chang used his keytar to damage Jeff's Lexus denting its frame and shattering its windshield ("English as a Second Language"). At the end of the school year, Jeff was driving the still battered car and parked it in the faculty spot he received as a reward for participating in the debate ("Pascal's Triangle Revisited").
At the start of Jeff's second year at Greendale, he had repaired the Lexus over his summer break returning it to pristine condition. Not long after starting school he takes Troy and Pierce for a ride intent on disproving the laters ridiculous religious beliefs. His macabre plan was to trick them into going to the morgue to view Pierce's mom's dead body to prove man's mortality. He has a change of heart after listening to a tape Pierce's mom made for her son which passed on a touching message. He instead drove them to what he lied would be thier destination, an ice cream parlor ("The Psychology of Letting Go"). After bonding with the female study group members, Abed lets it slip that he sometimes ate lunch in Jeff's car ("Aerodynamics of Gender"). On Troy's 21st birthday, Jeff drives him and Abed to a bar where they meet up with the rest of the study group to celebrate. Troy later becomes the designated driver by default when everyone else is wasted and drives the Lexus to take them all home. Jeff makes out with Britta in the backseat while Troy is escorting Annie to her apartment. Abed was annoyed as he too was in the backseat at the time ("Mixology Certification").
The Lexus returns in Season Four when Jeff drives his Lexus to a reunion with his estranged father William Winger on Thanksgiving. He parks right next to his fathers car, a classic Mercedes Benz convertible with the license plate that reads "WINGINIT" ("Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations").
Jeffs Lexus is mentioned during a polygraph test into Pierce Hawthirnes desth that the remaining study group members participated in. In an attempt to unburden themselves of all thier secrets, Annie admitted she hit Jeff's Lexus in the school parking lot. She originally claimed it was struck by a Taco truck and regretted how rascist her lie came off in retrospect ("Cooperative Polygraphy").
Lexus IS 350Edit
|The Lexus Jeff owns is a second generation IS 350, produced by Toyota. Abed incorrectly identifies it as a 2002 LS 430, which is the larger luxury variant sold by Toyota. The IS 350 that Jeff drives did not launch until 2005. The car on the show is dark blue, has four doors and a sunroof. It's powered by 3.5-liter V6 engine offering 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. It's capable of going from zero to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds. At the time the car was sold, it was available with many upgrade options; Jeff's model sports a low aggressive look which gives it a similar appearance to the Lexus IS-F. In 2009, Jeff's license plate was 361-QBC.|
