 RECORD SALES IN DECEMBER PUSH LEXUS 1991 TOTALS ABOVE 70,000
 TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Lexus December sales of 8,694 set a one-month record and pushed total 1991 sales to 71,206, 12 percent above 1990, according to sales figures released today by the luxury division of Toyota Motor Sales.
 Sales of 3,371 ES 300s were up 88.6 percent from ES 250 sales in December 1990 and were the best ever for the ES model. Lexus sport coupe sales of 2,386 also were the best ever. Total sales for the month were up 30 percent.
 For the year, sales of the ES model rose 8.4 percent to 22,476. LS 400 sales totaled 36,955 and sport coupe sales were 11,775.
 "All in all, 1991 was a very good year for Lexus," said Dave Illingworth, Lexus group vice president and general manager. "Although the Gulf War, recession and luxury tax all contributed to a slow start, Lexus had a couple of aces up its sleeve in the new sport coupe models and the ES 300. Those models have been at the top of their segments since they were introduced and contributed greatly to Lexus' best year yet."
