I remember when I saw Mr. Akio Toyoda speak last August 11' @ the 2013 GS350 Pebble Beach Launch Event...

I took these photos..






The next 2013 LS falls into the "Updated" category...

They ALL CAN NOT be new at the same time guys....

Well they could.. as they did in 2006, but I understand that there's needs to be a short-term pain in order to space out the new product release in order to keep new customers coming to the showroom.

Something like that.....

Also, not sure how we missed this thread title issue.. But it is NOT going to be a 2014..

Per the Lexus Pressroom...

Lexus to Unveil New LS Flagship Sedan
  • TORRANCE, Calif., July 9, 2012 –
    Lexus will hold the World Premiere of the new Lexus LS flagship sedan at a special invitation-only event in San Francisco on Monday, July 30.

    The 2013 LS will be available as the LS 460, LS 460 L long wheelbase, LS 600h L hybrid sedan and the all-new LS 460 F SPORT.

    More information about the new LS will be available at 8:30 p.m. PDT on July 30, following a live webcast of the reveal on Lexus.com and facebook.com/lexus.





Enjoy,

~ Joe Z

I posted this prior to the official Lexus press release last week on Monday. I tried to change it, but I wasn't able to.

Yes, plenty have noticed. In fact many of us knew back in 2010 when the first prototype appeared. Even in this 2009 photo, I realized that this was a heavily modified and updated W221.

Not a teaser photo of the updated model.

It's the current model, they even used the same photo from their website:





Look closely.

That the photo shown is in fact the current model LS, not the up and coming new model.
