2012 Lexus LS 460 Touring - black - studio front three-quarter view

Lexus has announced the automaker will show off its new 2013 LS line in San Francisco on July 30. The shindig will be an invitation-only event, thought the premium automaker isn't serving up too many details beyond the locale and the date. The LS family will eventually be available in a total of four variants, including a racier-looking F Sport model. We're also holding out hope that eventually the much fussed-over LS TMG Edition we've seen racing around the Nürburgring recently will make the scene. Lexus has kept a pretty tight lid on what we can expect from the next-generation LS, though odds are designers will apply the company's new spindle grille to vehicle's fascia.

New headlights with LED daytime running light accents and metal elements will also likely show up. As you may recall, Lexus let slip a glimpse of what could have been the 2013 LS during a presentation back in March. Beyond that, don't be surprised to see the usual battery of improvements in fuel efficiency, power and toys. Take a look at the skimpy press release below.
