Akio Toyoda Introduces the Lexus GS at the Tokyo Motor Show

Although Lexus didn’t debut anything new at the Tokyo Motor Show this week, it still marked the home country debut of the next-generation GS — Lexus president Akio Toyoda was on hand to reveal the car to the assembled press:

There’s so much positive emotion in Toyoda-san’s speech, who didn’t shy away from marking the new GS’ significance:

“I have taken the wheel of the new GS many times. It is a great car that moves the driver’s heart. So much so, that I feel it will change Lexus.”

This is clearly a sincere man that believes in his company and what they’re doing — it’s to the point now that I can’t imagine Lexus without Akio Toyoda in charge.
