Lexus Reveals 2013 GS 350 Teaser Image

With only two weeks before the official reveal of the 2013 fourth-generation Lexus GS in Pebble Beach, Lexus has released a teaser image of their new sedan — here it is in convenient wallpaper desktop size:

2013 Lexus GS 350

The front grille shape from the LF-Gh concept is in full force, though toned down enough for a production model, but it isn’t until we do some tweaking that the real picture is revealed (click for a larger version):

The chrome surround around the grille does a nice fade into the bumper (which may or may not be body colored), but it’s much closer to the LF-Gh than I would have ever expected. Surprising that Lexus would release an image so easily adjusted, but judging from this photocopy quality version, they’re likely very eager to start showing this car off. Very impressive.

(Thanks to everyone for sending this in!)

I think I may trade up my GS400 for the new one! It's pretty sick!

This is either GS250 or GS350 ... because it's isn't a web shape .

    Yeah, it's certainly the base-model GS 350.

    Ah ... also I do realize the F-Sport model have some sort of LF-Gh style of front bumper's side intake as well .

Here's hoping it doesn't have the cheap looking, black plastic fog lights that the CT and IS have.

    From the adjusted image above, it looks to have the same circular fog lights, but without the black plastic surround.

The grille should have been toned down way more! Still get a "let's copy Audi" vibe from this. Well, at least we have the beautiful current GS a while longer.

    Like I said in a previous post, Lexus kept it covered during the 1st round of reviews because they knew a lot of people would be disappointed (and some offended) by the styling.

    No,nor do I. There are several cars on the market with large front grills,but they´re not all copycats. There have always been similarities between cars of the same period,as they´ve done their own take on whatever the design trends at the time were. Now,if we are to talk proper copying let me just say this: Altezza lights...   ;-)

    The design of the Lexus grille is pretty much a Mitsubishi+Audi grille mashup. Not original at all. Hopefully they differentiate it from the Mitsubishi and Audi grille's by making the bumper body colored? I liked the last L-Finesse grille that Lexus used in their last generation of products far better. It was more "Lexus" and more original.

    In all honesty, this looks no different from the grille of the CT. Lexus is aiming for a more bold and aggressive design language than previous L-Finesse iterations. I can't possibly imagine Lexus looked at a Mitsubishi or an Audi and deliberately tried to copy it, but to each their own.

    The BMW 7 series look like the Current LS 460/600 from behind. They all take from each other!

    If the bumper is blacked out non-auto-enthusiast might confuse the GS with an Audi and from the picture the bumper looks like a it'll be blacked out.

Looks like current LS meets Audi A4. Its ok, but too derivitue and too bland overall, but it'll probably sell better than the last gen.

    I just feel that the last gen GS (and frankly every GS before this one) had a more groundbreaking design for the time, than this one will have today. All the styling elements we see on this new GS we've seen before on other cars, and this doesn't bring anything new or revolutionary to the table.

The front is cool with me.  I just want more surface detailing in the flanks It's kind of slab-sided, and it looks taller in profile, not lower and wider, which is kinda what you want in a sports sedan BD

Lexus is finally getting aggressive in the design department thanks to the LFA development.  Can't wait to see this on the street.  Fingers cross for a GS-F.
