I see the resemblance, but in no way is a camry remotely close to the new LS. It actually reminds me more of a spacious IS. In either case, we can all see what direction the designs are going. Too bad I don't have $60-70k to drop on a vehicle, let alone $40k.

I somewhat agree. They veered a little too close to the LS design. However, if you put the cars next to each other I have a feeling the differences will outweigh the similarities enough to end any confusion. This is not to say that people would mix the two up, which is rediculous, but that their design isn't quite so similar. The pure scale of the LS against the camry should make them look totally unique on the street. This is what I hope anyhow, as the camry has got larger and larger.
Woah I did not even realize that. I really like the new LS alot but I didnt know that it shares that many lines with the Camry. In some rear angles at a distance, you probably cannot distinguish the two. The only thing that sets them apart is the attention to details such as the nice chrome trim and wheels.
They are similar but not that close. It's all in the details. Toyota will probably sell a bunch of Camry cars. Good for them. If I was in a place in my life where I can drop the $ to get the new LS, I really could care less if the Camry kind of resembles it. I'd still be driving an LS.
There are similar lines, but there's still no way anyone with a good pair of eyes cannot distinguish the two, even from a distance. Maybe possible for non-car enthusiasts, but who really cares, they usually can't tell MANY cars apart anyway, & they can't really see who is driving it from a distance, if that's what you're concerned about.
There's some family resemblance, so what ? Especially for that "emblem nose" on the grille of the Camry, I don't think you can easily miss it even from afar, maybe that's why they make it look that way . . .
