The next ES sedan could be sold globally, replacing the GS

Lexus has shared a teaser image of a yet-unnamed future production car, which we believe to be the upcoming ES. The now-familiar spindle grille fills almost the entire image, which Lexus has served us with the tagline "Expect the Unexpected".

Is the GS on life support here in the U.S. too?

We last wrote about the Lexus GS one year ago to editorialize about the rumored death of the luxury brand's sports sedan. Now, Dutch outlet AutoRAI claims to have gotten confirmation from Lexus Europe that the automaker stopped taking orders for the GS in March, and will cease production of the Euro-spec model in April. In keeping with last year's speculation, AutoRAI reports the next-generation, front-wheel-drive ES will fill the role of the rear-wheel-drive GS there.

Opinion

Really, the ES is as good or better in almost every aspect.

We enjoy playing the speculation game.

Talk of a twin-turbo V6 for the new Lexus GS and LS has us wondering if this engine will make it into the hypothetical Toyota Supra and BMW Z5.

Replacing Displacement Without Getting Much In Return

We test the 2016 Lexus GS 200t sedan and find that it's a nice enough luxury sedan, but driving enthusiasts will definitely want to stick with the GS 350 and its more powerful V6 engine.

Opting Out Of The Horsepower War

The Lexus GS F gives up power to the competition, but still has plenty of charms behind the wheel.

Toyota believes that it can make human inputs largely unnecessary from highway drives in vehicles by 2020. To prove what the company can do, the Lexus GS Highway Teammate concept shows the tech in action right now.

The Lexus GS gets a number of enhancements for the 2016 model year, including a turbocharged 200t model. The updated sedan debuts in California as part of Monterey Car Week.

Lexus may not be ready just yet to enter Australia's highly competitive V8 Supercars series, but it appears to be paving the way this year by providing an RC F to act as a safety car, an IS 350 F Sport as a medical car and a GS 350 F Sport as a support vehicle.

Detroit

Lexus has just unveiled its 467-hp GS F to the masses at Detroit, and while it might be down on power compared to its rivals, its weight advantage is notable.

V8-Powered Sedan Serves Up 467 HP, 389 LB-FT

Lexus has lifted the veil on its 2016 GS F ahead of its official Detroit Auto Show debut. The luxury performance sedan packs a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 that pumps out 467 horsepower and 389 pound-feet of torque.

Spy Shots

A mere trio of weeks after the latest report in the slow-moving Lexus GS F rumor cycle, we have a brand new batch of spy photos of the BMW M5-fighting sedan. Looking more and more production ready – notice the more finished exhausts compared to our last round of photos – the GS F can be seen poking around what we imagine is Germany.

Report

The Lexus GS F has been one of those cars that's been rumored and whispered about for years, but has never come to fruition. The last time we spoke of the Lexus-badged BMW M5-killer was in a crop of spy photos, posted one year ago yesterday. So what's behind this latest rekindled round of rumors?

We all know that street racing is dangerous, and that motorsports are best left on the track or drag strip. However, that doesn't mean that there still isn't some outlaw allure among enthusiasts of racing on public roads. In this video, Vice Japan profiles Eikichi Nagayoshi of Japan's island of Okinawa. He is a used car dealer by day and an illegal racer by night.

The Lexus GS was totally redesigned for the 2013 model year, but Lexus is already tweaking its midsize luxury sedan. While a handful of small changes are being made, the big news for the 2014 model year is that rear-wheel-drive GS350 models will be getting a new eight-speed automatic transmission for improved fuel economy and performance.

Spy Shots

Other than some missing badges and (hopefully) a not-yet-finished rear fascia, what you see here is an undisguised look at the long-awaited Lexus GS F high-performance sedan. Lexus' answer to the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, the GS F has been spotted again.

Teased

With the teaser image of the concept car above and the announcement that Lexus will be premiering it to the world at the Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday, September 10, you know pretty much what we know. The Japanese luxury brand has decided to to say nothing more. Picture sleuthers have, however, suggested that it is a conceptual preview of either the RC Coupe or the hotter RC-F that will be revealed in Tokyo, or, less likely, the coming NX crossover - and that covers all the bases that we know

Spy Shots

It's been a while since we've heard rumors of the fabled high-performance Lexus GS F, but thanks to our eager spy photographers, this looks to be our first real proof of the machine's existence. We don't have the usual brace of photos from all angles to work with this time around, our spies saying that every time Lexus' garage door opened, engineers jumped in front of the cameras to prevent the car from being photographed.
