hey guys i foudn this off of the auto spies website (www.autospies.com) if this is a repost sorry about that. But it appears that the LF-S concept is actually going to be the basis for the new design of the new IS. Comments welcome (both good and bad). I personally think it's a tad bit too radical for a lexus.

"Auto Spies World Exclusive: If you were like us, you were hoping that the next Lexus GS would be a re-badged LF-S, like the one shown in Tokyo...

Here's what we've found out...

Lexus threw everyone a curveball (including us). The real story on the LF-S is that you WILL see it come out as a Lexus...but surprise, the design of the LF-S is the next IS

The story is the GS was too far in development to change the skin to be similar to the LF-S.

Stay tuned....The IS will be the first Lexus based on the more modern and attractive LF-S design.

YES!!!"

*edit* here's the link to the article i looked at

doesnt look all that bad considering how bad a lot of the other concepts look. Most of them look like space ships or somethinbg. I like this one though.

I seem to be the few who love the look of LF-S :-?

If some of the more radical parts of the design gets moderated down a bit in final production, this would be a very sexy car, much better than TL and GS.

auto spies is a pretty reliable source. However, i hope they are wrong on this one. Yea i agree with you sun5467692, it look too big to be considered an IS. But i think what autospies is saying is that the design (i.e. theme or whatever) of the car will be the basis for the new IS and not that the LF-S, as it is right now, is going to be the new IS. I dont know but i thought this was interesting nontheless. Keep the comments coming! :)
