F, now there's a letter that says high performance, don't it? Lexus must have figured that all the good ones were taken, so why not just go with the first letter of FAST. No doubt, the GS-F will be a rocket. It better be, if it wants to try kicking sand in the face of the M5. The artist's rendering gives a credible estimation of what kind of styling *ahem* enhancements might accompany the increased athleticism in the GS's chassis, and the increased power under the hood. We guess that the GS-F will need to call some attention to itself to help build street cred, but if the actual car looks anything like the rendering, there'll be no stealth bombing for you.

      Its yust a speculation, stop hating lexus.

      Try as they might, Toy can never summon enough soul to create a vehicle that draws adrenaline. This latest entry is ideal for the comb-over crowd, whose largest risk to date is choosing a red-colored vehicle.

      Why not make more use of that power by ditching the heavy hideous bodykit.

      No matter how fast you make it, it's still a friggin' stodgy 4 door. #4 had it right when referring to this as ideal for the "comb-over crowd". When are manufacturers going to get a clue and make some of these vehicles as 2 door coupes or fastbacks. The Lexus IS is an ideal candidate for a 2 door. Keep the same lines, just 2 fewer doors.

      #7: I "guess" you totally missed the point.

      Toyota will never build "credibility" with their F series until put a third pedal in the footwell.

      hey you all,
      500HP, V10 is not bad, but at the cost of this thing I don't know if people that shoot for E63AMG adn BMW M5 would give up their rides, but I bet there is a crowd out there that would buy the Lexus.

      but, then again this is more Luxurious and has a much better interior that either the M5 or the E63AMG- the outside looks also take it from the M5, so i'll take one adn leave those of you wanting teh Mustang GT500 in the dust (even though I will have 4doors) - I need the 4 doors in my ride

        I really like Toyota/Lexus but I would buy the Audi RS6 or even an M5 before I would think twice of the Lexus F series. One look at the IS-F and you get the feeling that these cars were created for highschool kids. I just dont get all of the vents, scoops, and bling that they throw on their F line. They should stick with what they are good at, reliable luxury cars and leave the drivers' cars to the makes that have real racing soul.

      "1. Let me guess. 400hp 5.0L V-8 and an automatic transmission."

      If you don't want to read the article, I guess you can only "guess". To bad you didn't read the article, because now you look ....! (like someone who gives an opinion without bothering to read the facts.) 500 HP V10.
      • 8 Years Ago
      hmm, how would the interior go against an audi rs6?
        • 7 Years Ago
        As much as I hate to say it, it probably wouldn't. Audi's interiors are more high-tech luxury while Lexus is more comfort luxury. The theoretical GS-F will not compare to the RS6 which will have much higher torque and at least 100bhp more out of the Lamborghini-derived V10.

        I'm looking for the GS-F to come in under all of the German players though, and I think it will pull customers for that alone if it's say 70,000 compared to the 85-100k of the competition.

      re pbcrunch,"
      I didn't see any facts in that article, just a bunch of speculation"

      Actually the whole concept is speculation so far but I agree, an auto (to me) is not befitting. V10 or V8 could put out the same power. It would all depend on the way the engine was designed. Unfortunately, I would not be the one buying a car like this and it's not me they are aiming at.

      I didn't see any facts in that article, just a bunch of speculation. Maaaaybe the car will get a V-10, but I guarantee it will be connected to a lame-o slushbox.

      I say this as the driver of a 1995 Lexus SC400. I don't hate Lexus, I am just suspect of their ability to deliver a true driver's car.

      It would be cool if they offered a manual trans though. They used to offer manual transmissions on the SC300 and ES300 back in the early-1990s and on some of the later IS300 models in the 2000s.
