2016 Lexus GS-F Teased Ahead of Detroit + Exclusive Digital Renderings



gsf teaserLexus has not specified exactly what new F model is coming to Detroit - preferring to leave a bit of mystery in the two teasers just revealed.

We have a hunch it is the long-rumored GS-F in production form, arriving to Lexus showrooms in Summer 2015 as a 2016 model.

But it could be a new IS-F, or perhaps even the expected LS revamp.

We believe it is the GS-F from a close look at the front fenders, the hood length, and the fact that the GS would greatly benefit from the latest nose shown in the IS and RC. This GS-F, if that is what it turns out to be, is likely to headline a refresh for the GS350 and GS450h later in the 2015 calendar year. These revised GS sedans would arrive together, leveraging the halo appeal of the F model to raise the profile of the GS models in general.Track-Drive-Review-2015-Lexus-RCF-Is-Roaring-Delight-Around-Autobahn-Country-Club-13rcf gif RCF new 434

We've created some rough renders showing how the RC F's styling themes feel on the GS sedan proportions. Considering that they all share a similar chassis and floorplan, this is not quite a stretch to imagine shared engines and performance kit across the cars.

The biggest difference shown in these teasers vs the RC F is that the LED headlamps of the teaser are a horizontal array, versus a triangular stack in the RC F. Subtle. Overall, these renders are just a rough, rough guide....
