So chances are that the Altezza facelift will be a year or so before the IS300 facelift (in years ahead)...

Yes, Altezza was first launched in 1998, around Oct coz I remember the Toyota AMLUX corporate showroom in Ikebukuro, Tokyo making the car on the window display when I made the trip before Christmas..

No, the GS400 was first released in 1997 Fall. I remember because I got the delivery of my 98' model ES300 in 97' Fall when the GS300/400 was just launched in Oct (in Canada).

I bought my GS400 is the spring of 1998. I know the GS400 was released in the fall of 1997 but it was introduced as a 1998 model..So if the Altezza came out in 1998, did it come out as a 1999 model or did it come out 1997 as a 1998 like the GS....
