Yes, that is my point exactly. You are more of aware of this than a lot of people, as I feel as one has speak on behalf of a brand, when people complain something was "watered-down". Case in point,...

The R231 SL is the opposite, as it inspired the R172 SLK in a last-minute effort over 7 years ago. Design work on the R231 SL was primarily defined in 2007, with the R172 immediately taking after it...

Once again, I get tired of careless reporting from "journalists". You cannot "borrow" inspiration from what comes after you, if you (2016 Optima) are beyond the stage of being altered/tampered with,...

That's exactly my concern for them and their customers looking to upgrade.

Toyota seems to be making that a pattern in some areas and leaving things as-is, by not adding newer content and sometimes removing previously available equipment. The LS lost APGS in 2012, likely...

Lexus MUST evolve their design language for flagship models to a point, so they can make a specific statement for the upper end and set a newer tone for Lexus design. It isn't ideal for subordinate...

Further delayed? Hopefully not. The MY2015 updates for the 3rd iteration of the 4LS (XF40 III) should've been more significant if that transpires, as a 5-6 year run for a secondary facelift is risky...

The "40-Series" LS was designed with the E65 in mind from about 2002 (XF40 dev. began in 2001). Lexus froze the final design of that back in 2004, just a year before BMW internally approved concept...

To correct what I said above (without editing it), the 36-38 months figure actually refers to concept selection to Job #1. It is actually an estimated total for a model like the LS nowadays, at 37.5...

Interesting comment Sulu, as that is very accurate. You seem to be very on point much of the time as a matter of fact. Toyota since the late 2000's has reverted back to a very lengthy product...

I am very disappointed to see it is something concerning downmarket aspirations, as the upper end of Lexus needs further attention. A GS facelift should've been presented at Geneva or a concept for...

2016 Hyundai Tucson

Peter Schreyer's "first" Hyundai design approval back in 2013, the 2016 Tucson. German media (source of photos) just deleted some press release articles with these photos, as possibly an embargo was...

Very possible and I would hope so. They don't need a Yaris size vehicle.

Excellent work as usual UZJ, that is definitely a component mule test vehicle. The LX has no business casually being in Japan, as they are primarily for export or testing when in Japan. It is the...

I think the only reason I wanted this, is so that they stuck to the traditional timetable life-cycle of 9 years and only did a minor "swan song" refresh. I would hate for this "new LX" to merely be a...

This has been expected of course. However, reading some of the comments there, I find it quite stupid that one wants to champion the 200-Series LX going longer than a 10-year life cycle. It's not a...

Both the Q30 and QX30 look great in production form, as does the next Q60. Seems that many people were mistaking the Q30 as a QX30, as some of the spy shots were of a QX30 in a Q30 body. Infiniti...
