Here's another teaser from Lexus, I think this one everyone has probably seen, but this is the LSh model apparently:

Pretty interesting. I'd be most interested in the 5L V8 and hybrid V6. A gas/turbo V6 could be decent too, it would just need to be pretty powerful (340hp+) to move an LS around with decent gusto.

Sidenote: I'd like to see Lexus offer a standard V6 (~340hp) and optional TTV6 (~415hp) in the GS, perhaps even moreso than a V8.

I still think that Toyota's work with electronically-assisted turbos will bear some fruit...

Turbos are the new trend. I am hoping to see some forced induction from Lexus. Then the tuners will flock to the brand

Would it be too much to ask for an LS-F?

I just hope they get it right whatever it looks like. IMO, the refreshes of the current LS are not up to par. They kinda took away the elegance of the car. Especially the hybrid.

If Lexus is capable of making it, then I say: BRING IT

There's a reason why I posted that image of the TMG edition as despite TMC's denial, it was very likely involved in development of the upcoming 2013/14 model. The fact that the TMG's lower valance grille was even shaped like the spindle fascia means it could have been a test mule.

It's cars like the new GS and forthcoming LS that make me want to make more money.

The grill on the new LS look very similar to the LF-LC.

Yup, they've incorporated the Lexus L logo by digging into the grille. I liked this detail also in the LF-LC. I also noticed the headlights in the LS look very similar to those seen in the LF-Gh!

I love how they implemented the chrome surround, very fluid and sculpted, even more so than the LF-LC.
