Default LS 400 and LS 600hL Together

It's amazing how much the LS has grown since 1990:

Great shot.

I remember when the 400 came out and how large and luxurious it seemed.

The 2013 looks like a monster in size compared to the 400!

nice side by side flipside, i was looking for a pic like this. yeah the LS has come a long way. in another 15,20 years someone will be doing a side by side with the 2013 LS and the 2033 LS. i can just imagine how much technology is going to be in the 2033 model.

Think of a golf cart with nice "L" logo trim all over it...

MADD respect to the Big Body LS(all the years). I don't know any other car that's more elegant and Gangsta at the same time. Only other car would probably be a 64 impala. LoL

Not bitter, just aware. Try googling "Corporate Average Fuel Standards" aka CAFE standards. Also keep your eyes and ears open for V8 to V6 and V6 to V4 engine downsizing. Things are in the works all over the industry.

Seems like you may be right according to that. I'll keep my boat as long as I can!

It was a question to which I received an answer. No need for you to spit at your computer monitor.

I think the 1995 / 1998 model is the best. It has the nice front (not the big head light Toyota style from the facelift) but it also looks better than the first LS 400.
