For a weekend in January, I became an official member of Joe Bacal’s JTGrey racing team, who are entering the 2012 SCORE off-road season with a brand new LX 570 race truck. The following is the final installment of a three part series detailing my experience.
2012 is going to be a big year, both for Lexus and this website — not only is there nine new or updated models to look forward to, but as Lexus Enthusiast enters its fifth year of publication, there’s also going to be some big new site developments to watch out for.

Over the past three weeks, Lexus has been bringing in automotive journalists from all over the world to the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, California, for the global press launch of the all-new fourth-generation GS.
The SEMA Show opens today, and I'm here in Las Vegas to cover all the Lexus announcements, and there's going to be plenty -- the next-generation GS *F Sport* package, the Five Axis Project GS, VIP Auto Salon's hyper IS-C & Joe Bacal's new LX Racer will all debut today at the Lexus display.
When I spotted a 2012 Lexus CT 200h F-Sport during the Pebble Beach Concours a couple weeks back, it was notable for two reasons — not only was it my first look at the F-Sport option package, it was also showing off the new Nebula Gray Pearl exterior paint.
It was a crazy day today at the Lexus GS event in Pebble Beach, and what better way to continue my coverage than by featuring the introduction video with Lexus USA General Manager Mark Templin and, surprise of surprises, Toyota President Akio Toyoda.

With less than 24 hours before the much-anticipated reveal of the 2013 Lexus GS in Pebble Beach at Parc du Concours, I wanted to give everyone a breakdown of your options for following the action online.
The next generation Lexus GS is almost here, and to mark the occasion, I've put together a brief timeline of all the car's public appearances (accidental or otherwise) for the latest edition of my monthly *Lexus Magazine* column.
The Pebble Beach reveal of the 2013 Lexus GS 350 is just two weeks away now, and as I prepare to make the trip to California for the unveiling, Lexus has also extended me an opportunity to invite five readers (plus up to three friends) to the debut.
Last week, I picked up a 2011 Lexus IS 350 AWD from Lexus Canada HQ for a road test, and so far, I've found it a very easy car to drive fast. I don't know if it's the AWD system or the memory of the LFA driving school, but there's some serious confidence happening in this car.
Every once and a while, I'll read a review or article about Lexus and notice an inaccuracy -- usually a minor technical point or some obscure historical fact. Mistakes happen, no problem. What's unusual is to see an article built on nothing but mistakes, where even elementary facts are ignored -- but that's what I found with Nelson Ireson's Motor Authority editorial on how the Lexus LFA is a failure.

Lexus has released a short video from the LF-Gh launch event in NYC, which includes a smart interview with Marketing National Manager Brian Bolain: One thing that’s been emphasized from all Lexus executives is how the LF-Gh is not just a preview of the next-gen GS, but an indicator of where the Lexus design will …
Here’s a short Lexus Magazine video featuring Brian Fox (of Fox Marketing) talking about his custom Lexus CT 200h on display at the NY Auto Show: I was there when this video was put together, and at one point, the super-tall Mr. Fox was sitting in the CT with his head sticking out the sunroof …
Automobile Magazine has some great quotes about the LF-Gh from Simon Humphries, General Manager of Lexus (& Toyota) Global Design — here’s a sampling: On the general design theme: “The LF-Gh was designed in [our Lexus studio in Japan].

Out of the few hundred photos I took of the Lexus LF-Gh last week, this photo closeup of the grille & headlight was one of my favorites — so I made it into a desktop to share: Select Resolution: 1920×1080 | 1680×1050 | 1440×900 | 1280×1024 | 1280×800 | 1024×768 Pretty mean looking — it …
With so many Lexus LF-Gh photos already floating around, I thought it might be a good idea to focus on the smaller details of the latest Lexus concept, especially when they’re so visually interesting: The side profile was my favorite angle — by increasing rear headroom & available trunkspace, Lexus has moved to give the …
