• Lexus releases teasers for the GS-F and GS450h

Lexus has been rolling out their new fleet of vehicles over the past couple of weeks, highlighted by the presentation of the 2013 GS 350 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. You would think that after what’s been a busy two weeks, Toyota’s premium brand would be slowing down a bit to catch their breaths.

Apparently not.

The Japanese automaker is now gearing up for the world debuts of two new vehicles, the GS F-Sport and GS 450h.

No word yet as to what these cars will bring when the covers are pulled off, but all indications are that the GS 450h will be making its world presentation at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. Among other things, the GS 450h will carry a hybrid powertrain that features a V6 engine combined with an electric motor.

Meanwhile, the GS F-Sport will carry plenty of aerodynamic accessories, not the least of which include a redesigned front bumper and judging from the teaser photo, a honeycomb grille and a new set of alloy wheels to go with a new suspension set-up.

Though it’s possible that we’re going to see the GS F-Sport alongside the GS450h in Frankfurt, don’t be surprised if Lexus keeps the former under the covers for now with an eye towards the 2011 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

At the rate they’re going, it’s probably best for these guys to bring one up at a time. SEMA’s scheduled for November anyway and after the month they’ve had and the busy September coming up, these guys have every right in the world to keep the GS F-Sport behind the curtains until then.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Oh yeah, I have to say that I’m really impressed with the details of the car and it seems luxurious. I can’t wait for the debut of the vehicle. I think it will sell like hotcakes.

That’s quite an amazing review. I think although this vehicle will debut in the Frankfurt Motor Show, it really doesn’t mean that it will be available in the market. I like the details in here.

I wonder on how this car will perform using its engine. However, with the elegance of the car I bet it would be powerful as well. I hope to see a future production for this one.

hmm. It seems that there are a lot of future production of the Lexus. I really love the styling of the car. I was thinking on how this car will perform using the combination of v6 and electric motor.
