Not very good IMO.

Walk into a BMW dealership and they have a 1 series M, M3, M5, M6, X6M, X5M... etc.
Mercedes and TONS of AMG cars.

If they just stop at the ISF - IMO, the LFA was pointless. Why build a halo car if there are no "F" models for people to buy?

That is why I think Lexus NEEDS a GSF ... only when lexus expands their brand will people see them as on par with the germans. 1 car does not make a brand. (In this case the F brand)
I agree with you about needed more F cars but at the same time the LFA is not pointless... they sold all 500 of them for 400+ grand... clearly someone car afford it.

Jump ship would not be the right term for me, because I don't see myself going to sell or trade in my IS-F simply because the new GS-F is out. BUT, when the time comes to get a new car (which I'm predicting will be maybe around 2017 when my warranty is up) I will definitely take a look to see what is out there, and expect a GS-F to be on the short list. With two young kids, I'm going to be in the 4-door performance sedan market for a good long while, and the GS-F sounds like it will be the logical step up.

Count me out. The GS is a nice machine, but even with F genes it will be a drastically different car from what we currently are driving.

These are two different animals.

I will keep my ISF. Especially since they have not even made a GSF.
