Default gs was supposed to be... a jaguar?!?

someone correct me if i'm wrong but...

i was leafing thru a coffee table issue of motorweek (i think that's the name) and there was a comparison article between the new infiniti m45 and the new gs430. in the article it mentions that the original design concept for the gs was proposed to jaguar, who turned it down, but was accepted by lexus which in turn become what we see now?

is this true?

I believe that information is correct. I also believe it was an italian design.
