 LEXUS SALES SURGE AHEAD OF '91 LEVELS
 TORRANCE, Calif., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexus car sales continued


to surge ahead of 1991 levels during February, according to figures released today by the luxury division of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. Inc.
 Total sales of 8,478 were up 89.3 percent from February '91. The ES 300, with sales of 3,115, was up 81.7 percent and the LS 400, with sales of 2,991 was up 8.2 percent. Sport coupe sales totaled 2,372. February sales also were up 27.4 percent from January '92.
 For the year, Lexus sales of 15,524 have more than doubled 1991 levels -- up 105 percent -- when the Gulf War, luxury tax and recession limited market activity.
 "We continue to see signs that the market is improving," said Dave Illingworth, Lexus group vice president and general manager. "The last weekend in February was our best of the year. More of the people that are shopping are buying, an indication some of the pent-up demand is returning to the market."
