Is this the 2009 Lexus IS?


An Autospies reader recently posted up this scanned-in Japanese auto mag page depicting the facelifted 2009 Lexus IS:

2009 Lexus IS Facelift

“Top Secret” banner aside, this is likely a photochop, though subtle enough to be believable. The differences are slight, there’s some GS design incorporated into the front end, and the side panels look to be tucked in. I do like the lights pulled out of the rear bumper. Overall, it wouldn’t be a bad update. It looks more refined, more modern.

One thing’s for certain, I do hope 2009 brings a update to the IS.
