Next-Generation Lexus IS to Debut at Detroit Auto Show?

2014 Lexus IS

Hidden at the end of the previously featured GoAuto interview with Lexus Australia marketing manager Peter Evans was this ballpark timeline for the next-generation Lexus IS:

Mr Evans revealed that “early publicity” for the third generation of the volume-selling IS sedan will begin towards the end of this year, suggesting a Detroit reveal in the New Year.

With the new LS debuting later today, the 2013 ES reaching dealerships in August, and the rumor of a new mystery model reveal at the Paris Motor Show in September, Lexus should have significant momentum entering the new year — introducing a new IS at the Detroit Auto Show would likely take brand interest through the roof.

If the rumor’s true and the timing is correct, do you think the IS will debut as a concept or production model?
