As predicted by the Spies, the HPX Crossover concept car featured many details that may make it into the GS-series.

Look for a Lexus version of iDrive and the AWD system of the HPX, to be implemented, into the GS-series.

Prototypes are currently undergoing testing at the Nurbrgring racetrack and engine and suspension tweaks are being done with the help of the Porsche engineering team in Weissach, Germany.

A concept version of the car will be showcased at the Tokyo Autoshow this fall.

I don't like this version.

I don't like the current version.

I loved the previous one.

Looks like they're continuing down their march to lameness.

OK, OK, I hear ya all. How about THIS version? Much better ah?

Another iteration:



ANd more info:

New Toyota Aristo, known as the Lexus GS in the states, information is available in Japan. The new Aristo is supposed to debut in Japan in the Spring of 2004. Toyota made a complete exterior style change and we're not sure about what the interior is going to look like as of this moment. The current Aristo was famous for their I6 turbo, but things change and they are going to stop the production of the turbo engine because of the emission problems faced by Japan.

The new Toyota Aristo, known in the United States as the Lexus GS-series, recieved a major facelift in Japan. They will come with a 3.5 liter V6 engine. The engine code is 453F and the specs are as follows: 280hp @ 6400 rpm, 238 lb-ft @ 4000. The 3.5 liter V6 engine seems weak for U.S. but it is strong enough for a small country with narrow roads. Japanese have to say "good-bye" to the famous I6 turbo engine but they will be satisfied with the new 3.5 liter engine.

Other rumors for the GS that is bound to appear in the states is that they will come out with a 3.3 liter-V6 and a hybrid 3.3L as well. The hybrid is also rumored to come equipped with AWD. Also, the 5.0L V8 that is going into the new LS and SC will more than likely appear in the upper scale GS.
