We've gotten word from a very reliable source that Toyota is planning two big debuts at the New York Auto Show, although neither is wearing a ToMoCo badge.
First up is a fully redesigned Lexus GS, something that we've reported on and spied before. Although it's unclear whether the GS we'll see in NYC is a concept or a production model, we do know that it will be underpinned by an all-new platform that will also be used on the next-generation IS, due out sometime next year.
The current GS has been on the market since 2005 and, despite consistent sales, it's overdue for a refresh. Expect many of the same V6 and V8 powerplants to carry over, although we haven't gotten word on an F variant or whether the 450h hybrid will soldier on.
More intriguingly is word that Scion will bring its own version of the FT-86 to the Big Apple's auto show, although don't expect a production version – this will be yet another concept similar to the version we saw at the Geneva Motor Show, just with new badges and a few stylistic tweaks.
Expect more details to follow in the coming weeks.
