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 serves as a reminder of the life he had before Greendale as a high priced 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".
In the series premiere, Jeff reluctantly trades his car to Professor Duncan for what he believes to be the answers to all his tests for the semester. He takes it back when he finds out Duncan tricked him. In the following episode "Spanish 101", the car is shown for the first time as Jeff takes a faculty parking spot for himself. In the episode "Home Economics", Jeff is shown to be living in his car after being kicked out of his condo. It is towed away in the episode, and he's forced to move in with Abed. In "Debate 109", Jeff agrees to join the Greendale Debate team after the Dean offers him an official faculty parking spot. In the next episode "The Politics of Human Sexuality", Jeff makes out with the Dean's new assistant in his Lexus. In "Modern Warfare", Jeff takes a nap in the Lexus in order to avoid talking about his relationship with Britta to the study group. In "English as a Second Language", the car is damaged by Chang and his keytar when he mistakenly believes that Jeff revealed to the Dean he didn't have a teaching license. Its last appearance was in the Season One finale "Pascal's Triangle Revisited" when Jeff is driving the still battered car and parks it in the faculty spot he received as a reward for participating in the debate.
Over the summer, Jeff has repaired the car, and it makes its return in the episode "The Psychology of Letting Go". Jeff takes Troy and Pierce for a ride, tricking them into thinking they are going out for ice cream. In actuality, he was attempting to take them to the morgue in order to view Pierce's mom's dead body. In "Aerodynamics of Gender", Abed admits to Shirley, Britta and Annie that he sometimes eats lunch in Jeff's car. In "Mixology Certification", Jeff drives Troy and Abed to a bar where they meet up with the rest of the study group to celebrate Troy's birthday. 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.
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".
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.|
