Are you going to post a live blog here? That would be useful for those of us in meetings who can't play live video with audio.

Saw it live on Lexus, the other link didn't seem to work more like a count down.

Wished the presentation was actually in stereo instead of mono when it was live!! On the replay it's stereo.

Other than that, they looked pretty good!

not happy about a 2014 car with a 2006 engine in it. was hoping it would get a mpg bump at least.

Due to the new transmission and probably updated tuning, it probably will get an increase in fuel economy, though probably only marginally.

This car looks so much better in any color other than white. whoever chose white for the media shots should be fired.

The headights look awesome on this red car. I wish they had a red or black IS350 F Sport on display.


The new IS design looks so coherent and well thought out. It makes the GS look like a complete ugly duckling. Honestly they should fire the GS design leader for caving - I bet if they had not held back that car would have been good looking too.

The IS is going to fly off the lots. They should have an ISF at launch if they are smart.

car show lighting is always bad, too much light. The red Corvette looked like plastic in the car show photos but when its outside in natural light, it looks a million times better.
