Can't really compare sales numbers now, I don't think any previous GS had launched in an economic environment this bad as the 4GS would ......

BTW, for me it's definitely 4 > 3 > 2 > 1 ........

I voted 2GS because i always wanted one and finally got it. The 2GS has a timeless design that's still relevant to me. I do really love the new GS features for starters a 306 HP engine in the base model a 12.3 inch lcd display a ML system that will blow your eardrums out. I love the headlights and the taillights it has an nice stance. I think the rear seat arm rest controls are cool.

I feel the 3GS never really got the marketing it deserved to me. It seems like it was always out shined by the LS and the less expensive ES. After i pay off my IS300 i plan on getting the 3GS. As for the 4GS i hope to own one some day.

4, 1, 3, 2

Please, let me explain...

The fourth generation because the design is hot and its new and I wish I had one right now!

The first generation because it was my first car and I'm still in love with it till this day like a 4th gen; if only I could have saved her :-( It's a classic!

The third generation because it was a nice fusion between the 1st and 2nd gens; body style means a lot to me.

Lastly, the second generation because the design was way left compared to the other generations and the series ran too long and I wasn't crazy about the body style, although I'm sure the performance was great. I guess they were planning ahead for the 20 year premiere of the 2013 GS.

3GS had more competition from Infiniti when it launched compared to 2GS, it actually did quite well under that circumstance(yes it definitely lost very significant sales to the Infiniti M, the Germans were less affected by the Infiniti M).
Any generation GS were always out shined by other Lexus sedans in terms of their importance in the Lexus line-up, the 2GS is prominent here just because CL happen to have many 2GS owners, it was the sportiest Lexus at the time it was launched(no IS yet at the time) and attracted the most younger buyers who is the group that goes to internet forums the most ...

not comparing sales with 98, but compare to other competitors. i still believe the ratio can somewhat tell a story. of course more competitions now and there are other differences

Im sure the new 4GS is just awesome. More power, all the bells & whistle's a person could want. But,if there gonna come out with the LF-GH. Then I dont think the GS should share pretty much the same face. Other than that, I would love to have a 3GS460.
