Read about this on Lexus europe's Twitter. I figured as soon as I saw the Gh that it'd be the new GS concept with a Hybrid format.

Default LF-Gh....So, that's not good.

OK, I know it's only a teaser pic of a concept, but if this is the new GS....yikes.
This is really bad. Deconstructivism might work for architecture, but not on a car. The shapes don't compliment, the details are disjointed. there's no flow.
It has a distinct retro feel, it reminds me of Japanese cars from the early-mid 1970s when every detail was overwrought, right down to the side-marker lights. Unless this car is absolutely perfect in profile, proportion and stance, then its going to ruin the legacy of the three generations of GS that came before.
While the LS and the IS look pretty good, I think this car's inspiration was the down-market CT200h. That's a car that would be fabulous as a new Celica, but just drags down the Lexus cache.
I think Lexus is getting lost in the woods the same way Honda has been when it comes to design.

Will give you my impression of car when I see it.
