The latest Lenovo device picking up unofficial support for booting with Coreboot is the X230.

Lenovo's X230 is an "ultraportable business laptop" with 12.5-inch display, 2.96lb weight, and other modern features while boasting an Intel Core i5 series processor.

With this Git commit there's initial support for the Lenovo X230 using Coreboot in place of its proprietary BIOS. However, among the open issues in using Coreboot on the Lenovo X230 is no S3 suspend support and other missing functionality.
