    Will the new GS have a V8 like the GS460 or no, will a GS-F come alive later in its life.

    No naturally-aspirated V8 like the GS 460 is planned. Lexus plans to replace it entirely with the V6 hybrid. And the GS F might sport a simple V8 instead of a V10 /:

    I had my hopes so high at one point…

  • Eddie

    sad…i mean its not bad looking, but its not anything ground breaking either. Oh well. Maybe our expectations are just too high every time. :/ On the bright side, Interior looks gorgeous though! :D

    going back with LFA?!?!

  • V12mind

    That’s what I thought.  I really hope that this isn’t the direction in styling that they want to go. 

    As for the rest of the car, it sounds pretty impressive.  Definitely something I’d like to test drive.

    Just like I said … even before it’s unveiled . XD

  • Eddie

    the headlights are far too predictable. the similar shape is on the IS, ES, CT and even to some extent on the new GX. They all have that curve…..WE WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT! xDD

    Oh and the taillights sorta evoke the avalon. the GS’s It looks more lexus. But still.

  • Eddie

    attachments.

  • Eddie

    sorry bout that. :]

  • Eddie

    Also, whats with Lexus and round fog lamps? seems like every model redesign or refresh, round fog lamps gets added.

    Unfortunately, I experienced some major technical issues while I attending the event — the new U.S. cellphone I bought (I’m from Canada) just wasn’t up to the task. I wish I could have sent more updates, but it was a struggle even getting these through.

    At least I’ll know better for next time!

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Seriously, it’s the same with every Lexus I’ve seen since L-Finesse was first used — you really have to see the car in person before forming any real opinion.

    As for the CT, the GS does share a family resemblance, but it’s not as pronounced as you may think. It’s definitely its own car.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    *blush* No comment. ;-)

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Yeah — it was my first time in the LFA on public roads, and it’s crazy the attention this car gets. We almost saw a couple accidents, and that’s in a city where Ferraris are a dime a dozen. Totally wild.

    I completely agree. I’m fed up with these round foglamps! Mercedes has already switched to LED foglamps & indicators, neither of which this GS has. Also the round fogs clash with the sharp edges & straight lines of the rest of the front end.

    Krew, what happened to your customary neat photography? This is rather sad, did you try to take photos with a cellphone? You used a proper camera for the pictures from Canada.

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    Oh, I have plenty of photos with my real camera (which I’ll be posting this weekend), but I was trying to cover the event live — needless to say, I’m going to need a cellphone upgrade for future events.

    You sure that’s LED foglamp instead of LED DRL ?

    Anyway , I hope the LSh’s LED Lo-Beam can be use widely in every single Lexus even on non-Hybrid model ! Also like you said , LED indicator for sure !

  • Anonymous

    The S-class has LED DRL’s mounted in the bumper which also serve the function of foglamps as they have similar brigntness, also seen in the all LED headlight Audi A8. If you look closely both these cars don’t have round halogen foglamps at all.

    The A8 & Merc CLS are the first to offer ‘ALL’ LED headlights ie low/high beams, indicators, park lights, flashers, daytime, cornering lights & fogs. Even though the LS introduced LED headlamps, the German’s are way ahead with that technology now…

  • http://www.facebook.com/RDS.Alphard Yong Thian Ding

    I do know R8 , A8 & CLS have full LED headlights systems though , but not sure if S-Class & E-Class’s bumper LED is either DRL or Fog Lamp … I think the one that really offer full LED headlights is R8 , and then A8 with CLS being latest .

    LSh did have LED light-set but only on Lo-Beam I think , and other stuff like Indicator or so is still regular light-bulb … I’m really hope Lexus will have full LED on both front & rear lights , it’s very very cool !

  • Thomas

    DRL’s by definition cant share it’s function with other light’s. DRL’s has to be seperate lights with no other function. The LEDs on the merc arent fog lights, but DRL’s.

    Great to finally meet you Kevin…!!

    Did you get any more detailed shots from the Lexus tent with Exterior and Interior offerings..??

    By the time I made it back there, security was already guarding the GS.. :)

  • http://lexusenthusiast.com krew

    I have photos of all the wheels, exterior & interior colours, plus all the trims. It’s the first thing I plan on posting once I get my house in order over here (full day of travel plus a wedding today!).

  • Anonymous

    ahahha Okay Krew (:
    A few new pictures are starting to change my opinion though!

    But each GS was always interesting and unique in its own way! One wouldn’t confuse the outgoing GS with another Lexus so easily :P

  • Anonymous

    LOL I remember how a lot of people were making these photochops with the CTh… I can’t believe how much of a reality that was! :P

    Have fun sharing stories at the wedding and making the bride and groom jealous!
