Woah! Put her back in, she's not done yet!



Rear and sides aren't bad - roofline looks a little too much like the 5-series and somewhat G37ish - albeit with LS and past GS influences...

The front grill is starting to grow on me, and with the 3/4 shot, it looks to be setting the car up perfectly for an F model!

I think the GSF is going to add more excitement to the sides of the car, and it will be perfect with the way the front looks.

I'm not in love but I... like it... sort of. For the first time in a long while I'm saying to myself... "I think the old one works better". This has a lot of conflicting design issues for me. It's sort of a hodge-podge. Current GS with a sense of Bangle 5 series and Audi grill design. I think it needs work but I'm still taking it all in so...

the rear looks great to me, especially the curved exhaust outlets in the bumper. From the side profile, the rear definitely looks like a 5er. Im glad lexus is starting to twist their side skirts like MB has been doing for years. Also glad about the clock. Interior definitely has cues from the LFA and RX and I love that it has a leather dash

from the looks it it, the space between the rear door and the trunk area has been stretched, especially when compared to the current GS, meaning that they probably gave up the fast back rear windshield for more trunk space for the hybrid battery

as far as im concerned, the side profile is nothing but a current generation LS... The front is screwed up.

the back looks pretty deent though.

Nothing great overall in my opinion.

lexus should about elegance and coherent, lexus should have, you know, more Zen.

this concept has neither. it might as well just be a muscle car.

sorry, but this reminds me of acura advanced sedan concept. and we all know what happen when 09 TL released.

AHhahahHAHAHAHAHA.

What a mess.

My 3GS looks better.

this one is having an identity crisis. From far off, the side profile looks like an LS.
The front is sort of trying to be a CT, but it's still in line with the corporate face.

Folks..... you can buy your 5 series now.


A car is only considered beautiful if it's beautiful from ALL angles.

You have to watch the video to experience the design.

From what I can tell profile is production ready. Its a shame that it lost coupe-like silhouette because of a long trunk or a perception of a long trunk.

Hands down the best part is the arch that goes into taillight and goes down to fender.

This is the best pic of a car so far

The lights look like jelly fish.

gotta love the hate for a prototype car. I guess no one read the release article? It's a showcase for all Lexus future design. I love the direction they're going. I can't wait for the production model.
