2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport

Quickly Closing In On The Benchmark The Lexus GS has been chasing the BMW 5 Series for more than two decades. This year, it may have finally leapfrogged its benchmark prey. Rewind your clock back to the late 1980s, when the midsize four-door sport sedan segment was dominated by BMW. The Bavarian automaker was selling rear-wheel-drive sedans (with manual transmissions, no less) that were every bit as powerful and agile as they were luxurious and comfortable – the best of both worlds, felt many buyers. Of course, it didn't take long for other automakers to get in on the action. ... Read More

    Featured: 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport Supercharged adds what we've been missing
    1351807140

    If there's one legitimate complaint that can be hurled at the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport, it's that it has no more power than its less-sporty siblings. It's not that 306 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque isn't enough for good performance – as the GS 350's 5.7-second sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) can attest – it's that a separate model that's ...

    Picture the scene: You're in a quiet place; a forest. The grass is green, the sky a perfect shade of blue. It's sunny; the temperature is hovering somewhere near perfect and a gentle breeze wafts by. You look at the pretty flowers – bend down to reach one... then, BAM! No, we're not talking about Bambi versus Godzilla – though we do offer ...

    1338389880

    The SC 430 wasn't exactly a hot ticket item, but it was the only Lexus model available with two doors until the model was discontinued in 2010. That could change for the 2014 model year, as Inside Line reports that Lexus is primed to unleash a coupe version of the all-new Lexus GS.

    Report: Lexus looking to distance itself from Toyota, move more upscale

    Automotive News reports Lexus may use the company's new GS to put some distance between itself and parent company Toyota.

    Apparently, being the Official Automotive Marketing partner of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit property was just the excuse Lexus needed to get in touch with swimsuit model Tori Praver. And we can hardly blame them. But what could Praver's statuesque body and perfectly feminine features have to do with cars, you ask? That's a very good question, and it's ...

    Lexus is doing whatever it can to convince people that its new GS is not like the anesthetized machinery it's been known for in the past. Part one of that plan was a Super Bowl commercial – a first for Lexus. Part two is throwing some sex into the mix. Lexus has earned (or more likely paid for) the right to call itself the Official Automotive ...
