Some more Lexus Enthusiast Exclusives :). Sorry for the late update but here are some iPhone pics of a 2017 Lexus LS L vs a 2018 Lexus LS 500!

You can see the difference in size as well as how the 2018 LS front end is a nice evolution of the 2013+ update. I still find the 2006-2017 LS to be a great looking car that has aged magnificently. These were taken during the #lexuslens event in Miami in January.

Video clip is simply the images below together.

I'm just reviewing the LS thread and found this one in the process. It strikes me how similar both cars look once you actually see them side by side. I'm still pining for the LF-FC 3 years later ☹

i dont think they look that similar at all, especially if you see them in real life and can see the whole thing at once, instead of 2D pictures.

Yeah. There's a definite family resemblance in these photos, but having seen my LS500 next to an LS460 in real life the 500 really does look like a very different car.

The facelifted LS 460 vs LS 500 from the front clearly shows similarities. The pre-face lift looks super old school Lexus compared to the LS 500. From the rear the exhaust outlets are pretty much the only thing I see kind of similar.

It's amazing to me how old the pre-facelift 4LS looks now. I remember when it came out and I was still driving my '05.
