Lexus is revving up to meet its drivers of the future by targeting affluent 30 to 50 somethings who love their tech gadgets. Case in point, the car company is renewing its advertising relationship with DVR maker Tivo to continue to utilize its Gold Star Sponsorship on TiVo Central, Program Placement, Product Watch, and Custom car configurator applications.

But now the car company is going beyond just working with Tivo, according to a story in AdWeek.
Seems Lexus is going broadband by opening up its own channel that will focus on art and leisure topics, as well as car issues of course. The company is also pushing its eco-friendly approach with its upcoming gas and electric hybrids.
