Its seems the next LS is generating more of a buzz this time around with a major refresh than when it totally change generations previously when it went from the LS430 to the LS460. Just an observation!

I'm honestly not hyped up anymore since it's going to be a "face-lift". Don't really have high hopes for it...

Interior, body, suspension... May not be a whole new chassis but it's more than just a little refresh. To most people this will look like a total redesign even if some of the underpinnings will be carried over

Finally some photos! The photos are consistent with some of the spy shots from previous posts. The front looks very menacing as with the GS F-Sport, but the rear does not flow. It looks a bit too busy for my tastes.

I did not think that the LS would be getting the most aggressive face of them all. I am sort of shocked.

I really like how it looks though. I am guessing that the non F-Sport models will get a body-colored bar splitting the upper and lower grille?

F-Sport has enough gills/grille space to make you think there has to be some monster motor hiding under the hood. Too bad that's probably not the case. Where is the TMG LS when you need it?!

Looks more like a photoshop of GS elements onto the LS

Whoa! That is one B.A. looking LS F-Sport. Photoshopped or not, that looks good.

Looks great!... if this were the GS's front. How come the LS F-Sport gets to have blacked out front bumper while the GS F-Sport does not (as the concept does)? It would suit the GS much better than the LS! The GS should have this front end instead while the LS should remain a bit more conservative IMHO.

Wow, that looks great! Keep in mind people this is the F-Sport, the regular LS won't have such an aggressive look. Finally, no more tack-on skirt or bumper pieces, finally Lexus!

This is just a refresh as expected, next-gen LS will come in about 2 years I'm guessing. Good that Lexus is spacing out the debuts of their next-gen models.

Also with regards to the look of this F-Sport front end, I think all future F and F-Sport models will gradually get more aggressive, just as each new next-gen model will gradually get a more fully developed spindle grille.

I expect the GS F and next-gen IS F to both look very aggressive. The next-gen LS is also likely to have a fully formed and more pronounced spindle grille, as compared to the GS or ES for example.

With how quickly Lexus is developing the spindle and their newer design language, I have a feeling that the refreshes of the CT and GS could be pretty awesome
