LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE RIGHT AFTER ALL!!

I spoke to the top service manager at Putnam Lexus yesterday and he told me that Larry just took delivery of an LS600hL, flatbedded to him.

It remains to be seen if he'll actually drive it to work though. Haven't seen any car in his parking for a while.

Can you say "welcome to the LS forums, Larry"?

I think that LS430 ultra is indeed the finest car in the world. Sure, the new LS460/600 may have more gadgets, and the L versions have more space, but their built quality and ride is nowhere near the 430.

What makes you say the LS460's is not up to par with the LS430?

Nice!

There is also another Fortune 500 CEO who is on the waiting list at Longo Lexus for an LS 600h L, right behind one of our own CL members!

I have Oracle stock. I knew Larry Ellison was smart.

Interior materials and build quality are a step down in the LS460, and that true for the rest of the line up as well, but also the low profile tires spoil the ride quality.

The LS430UL NEVER had the full leather dash as well as the top part of the doors with leather as the LS600hL have. Especially the Executive package for both the LS460L & LS600hL, the rear center console with the fold table & the wood doors are so beautifully made that any LS430 cannot come close to comparing with, that's my observation.

It had been quite a few months since I last saw his parking spot occupied with any car (last seen was a Flying Spur I believe), and just when I was starting to think that perhaps Larry no longer wants to drive to work....low and behold... here's what I saw today!

Looks like he didn't opt for the Executive Seating Package after all. It's also funny because the spot next to his is supposed to be always empty, and yet today he seems to have let an executive VP park next to him... in a good mood maybe?
