Guess what, folks? It's teaser time again!

This time, it's the 2013 Lexus LS sedan that's being given the painfully slow reveal treatment on Facebook. We know that the next LS will get its official debut on Monday, July 30, which means there's 11 more days of potential teasing to go. Strap in.

Judging from the smoky image above, we can expect a mostly traditional silhouette from the 2013 LS, with perhaps a bit more rake than the outgoing model. We're almost certainly going to see a so-called spindle grille to match the faces of Lexus' other recent models, and we're thinking there may be standard, hybrid and F Sport models on tap.

We tried playing with the teaser photo to eke out more details, but sadly there's not much else to see. That said, feel free to click on the image above for a larger view.

      That image looks reminiscent of the Infiniti G35 ad campaign of 7 or 8 years ago.

        Times change, that's the point of a new model. The GS F-sport is pretty widely held to be a great driver's car for a vehicle it's size so Lexus is likely looking to pull the same thing off for the LS.

        Stop kidding yourself. The LS is barely competitive in terms of what it offers. Sure, it has the highest sales in its class but it also lacks individuality. Two engines and basically two trims (luxury and sport). Boring. I can get a Mercedes S class in Hybrid guise or as a range-topping S65 AMG. I can get a variety of BMW 7 series cars including an Alpina B7. Do I even need to mention the Audi A8? The LS is a good car, but dull and hugely, HUGELY, overrated.

          "dull and hugely, HUGELY, overrated." Lexus is the most reliable cars, your statement is absurd... Or You are one of those German fanboys/Japan haters?

          Right, because you already know what trims of the LS exist for the new model? And the Mercedes Benz hybrids are a joke.

      Current LS gives off a very luxurious, rich, "boss" vibe. if they make that even better that would be cool. personally i think the LS is better than the 7 or s-class.

      Don't expect much change at all in the length or the side profile Expect major changes in the front and rear The car will be lighter, more powerful, more efficient, and more agile The hybrid will be much lighter, and get around 30 MPG Lexus has been spending a lot of time working on a high-powered turbo version with Toyota Ghb in Eurpoe. If that makes production, it would come out late next year/early 2014 Expect prices to start around $75k BD

      Lexus hasn't made anything remotely interesting in the last 10 years, and please don't mention that self parking gimmick. The only two cars that were interesting were the GS300 in 98 and SC hardtop convertible when it came out. Other than those two(I guess if you are part of 1% you can add LF-S), their cars have been just dull. They need to fire all their designers, get some fresh blood in there.

        Yeah! They totally need to fire the ones who have created vehicles that have brought them to the number one selling luxury brand.

      Wow the new Lexus must have terrible aero. Look at all those turbulent regions.

      I don't know why anybody would even consider buying this when Lexus already has the best sedan out there, the ES 350. Front wheel drive is so much better for snow and rain not to mention the interior is light years ahead of other rivals like the Aston Martin Rapide and the Porsche Panamera. Or so I hear.

      I personally can't wait for this bad boy to show his face Lexus is on a roll.. Haters will hate but I am a car fan that loves each and every car for what they are.. I see comments like all Lexus are starting to look a like which only a blind man or Audi fanboys would say and others like Lexus is copying Audi which again only a Audi fanboy or a German fanboy and again a blind man would say ... As no Lexus cars on the road look like any Audi out there... The only company that I don't like too much is Hyundai / Kia

      and... it will pretty much still look the same except for the new corporate grill. Move along.
