Rendered: Setting the Low Bar for the Next-Generation Lexus LS

Lexus LS Next-Generation Rendering

Using recent spy shots and plenty of vodka for inspiration, Russian website Kolёsa has illustrated a possible design for the next-generation Lexus LS — there’s the front view above, and also this rear angle:

Lexus LS Next-Generation Rear

Ignore the uneven styling and the massive c-pillar, and there’s some minor potential in this rendering. The low hood line reminds me of the LC design, and the coupe-like profile would match rumors that the next-generation LS will target the Porsche Panamera and Jaguar XJ. The rear design even makes a case for the LF-FC taillight design to make it to production.

Of course, I recommend squinting your eyes and not focusing too much on the negatives — but what do you think of this design?
