Read more

There’s is no need for spoiler alerts on this official Lexus video that features a comparison between the Lexus GS F Sport and the BMW 535i M Sport. Obviously, the GS F Sport is the winner here, but saying its model was better than the BMW wasn’t enough for Lexus.

Read more

Lexus’ GS is not a mainstream luxury sedan, at least not in the same way the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, BMW 5-Series and Audi A6 are. However, as several reviews have pointed out since its launch, there are definitely things to like about the GS, and the latest official promo tries to point some of these out, using the very rivals mentioned above.

2015 Lexus GS F "Uncovered" or "Digitally Covered"?


Read more

The crew over at Car&Driver is calling out Jalopnik for…calling rendered shots of the upcoming 2015 Lexus GS F "the real deal".

Before we tell you what we think, we'll just say that the scanned images are from Japanese magazine Best Car, which is notorious for its future car renders that are often portrayed as near official imagery. We'll add that Worldcarfans had posted the same story in September titled "Lexus GS F spied virtually undisguised" with the author also throwing in the phrase "Best Car's render" at the end.

Read more

The latest version of the GS sedan was introduced in 2012, for the 2013 model year, featuring a host of visible and invisible changes that Lexus thought would make a better contender in the class and boost its sales. Now, it gets even more, courtesy of yet another model year revamp, this time for 2014.

Spied: New Lexus GS-F Takes to the 'Ring for Testing


Read more

Is Lexus plotting a BMW M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG-fighting F version of the new GS Series, is the question we asked early last month when our spies caught a quick glimpse of a tester featuring the sport sub-brands' signature stacked tailpipes. We think so and these fresh photos from the Nürburgring of the same prototype provide further proof that Lexus has a hot performance under its sleeves.

Spy Shots: This Undisguised Tester Looks Like a 2015 Lexus GS F to Us…


Read more

If there's one feature that has remained consistent on Lexus' F-branded high-performance models (not to be confused with the F-Sport trim variants), are the signature stacked tailpipes on both sides of the rear bumper.

Add to that a group of Lexus employees who were enraged with our spy photographers for catching a few shots of a completely undisguised Lexus GS with the aforementioned feature, and you will understand why we believe that the car parked in one of the brand's garages is a prototype for the GS F.

Lexus to Make First Official Appearance at Goodwood Festival of Speed


Read more

Lexus is trying to steer away from its established image of just making comfortable, reliable luxury cars, and inject a bit of zest into the brand, because sporty sells nowadays.

Just take one good look at the revised LS, especially in F-Sport trim – it is considerably more aggressive than anything they've previously done, especially on a big heavy barge like their flagship. This is also evident in the new GS and IS, which again, with the mean F-Sport bits specified, look more aggressive.

Consumer Reports Discovers a Problem with Lexus ES and GS Emergency Trunk Release System


Read more

At some point in life, kids want to learn more about their daddy’s work, so they begin to ask questions. If said person works as an editor for an automotive publication or website, it’s quite natural that they will get to be around, and inside, quite a lot of vehicles.

Consumer Reports has a reputation for discovering malfunctions that others have failed to spot. Unlike what some manufacturers who were slammed by CR may believe, its editors are normal human beings, with families and all.

Director of testing Jake Fisher, for example, has two sons aged four and eight. Fisher says that they “already want to be car testers” and they “love exploring every new car I bring home and enjoy trying to fit into every small opening possible”.

2013 Lexus GS 350 Light Tuning Project by Vossen [w/Video]


Read more

Proving that you do not need to go to great extents to make your car stand out from the crowd, Vossen Wheels is giving us a taste of one of its most recent projects based on the 2013 Lexus GS 350.

While the Miami-based wheel manufacturer doesn’t go into detail, given the lack of the F-Sport model's fender badges and boot lid spoiler, it appears that the project car is based on the regular GS 350 while sporting the more aggressive looking front bumper and upper and lower grille inserts of the F-Sport variant.

Clean Looking VIP-Style Japanese Sedans Riding on Air Suspensions


Read more

One of the more popular fads in the Japanese tuning scene is the VIP Style or "Bippu", which usually refers to the modification of large Japanese sedans, though we have also seen the same theme being applied to import models as well as to vehicles from other categories.

The common denominator of VIP Style models is a clean and hunkered down look achieved through select aero parts, prominent exhaust pipes, high-end rims with low offsets that sit flush with the fender and a lowered suspension.

New GS Hybrid "Heartbeat" Promo vs Older Alfa Campaign Shows Why Lexus Has it All Wrong


Read more

As a concept, placing potential buyers on the passenger seat and having a professional driver take them for a very quick spin around a course to see if they manage to keep their heart rate below 120 beats per minute to prove that that the Lexus GS450h is a dynamic and sporty hybrid model, sounds pretty interesting.

But then again, if you think about it, with the right driver and course, even a four-cylinder Toyota Yaris can satisfy a thrill seeker in the passenger seat.

And so while we started out writing about the new Lexus GS 450h promo from advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi in Milan, Italy, launched earlier this month, we were reminded of an older campaign from Drori Shlomi BBDO, for the market introduction of the Alfa Romeo MiTo in Israel in 2010.
