Oh, ok, lol. I never really bothered looking at the hybrid models, but yeah, I see what you mean.

Anyway, whats with the corner of the grille? You know what I'm talking about right?

I wish I could circle it and show it to you guys, but don't really know how to.

Do the headlights kind of remind you of BMWs? How the top is covering the portion of the Halo's, and with this concept, the top part of the headlight is covering a portion of the LEDs as well.

Note: this isn't my actual car
The CT has LED headlights as well. However, the CT, HS, and RX only have two projector LED beams on each side for a total of 4 bulbs instead of the badass LS which has 6

Whats also obvious is the Lexus chrome grill trim that twists and isn't the usual 4 sides shape ala HS, RX and CT.

I noticed that as well. Doubt the separate LED lights make production, likely in the headlight.

I like how they took some details from current 3GS and incorporated it into this concept. As any Lexus concept (sans LF-X) it will be beautiful and striking I am 100% sure.
What will come out of it I dont know, from what I can tell right away it wont be the grill, it wont be the headlights, it wont be the stand alone LEDs and it wont be the taillights

I see a lot of LF Ch cues thus far....that is why the front air pockets looked familiar. We know it got toned down but was pretty true to the concept overall.

The GS seems sharper and not as round, bulbous though. I know this is a long shot but if it resembles the Audi concept Quattro I'm all for it.

did anyone notice the slit on the rear tail light? I wonder if that is for aerodynamics. The Mercedes C class has slits in the rear light so that air gets push from the bottom of the car and out the slits to improve aerodynamics

But I'm still looking forward to it. It will be toned down for production as it probably should.

It is cool how the taillight kind of makes that Lexus "L".

I don't think that's a slit. I think it's chrome trim along that body crease. You can see that the red from the tails reflect the red down to a certain point in that "slit" and it turns into black. I noticed it too but thought it was a little weird.

I'm starting to turn with the supports of this tread, the more comparisions I see of concepts vs productions, they more I feel I may grow to like it.
