What's most interesting about this conversation is that the next Lexus LS is set to arrive in 2016 as a 2017 MY vehicle. That's not far off at all from the G11- Lexus sure does keep their vehicles...

You're absolutely right, I was looking at the wrong month of YTD totals. The 7-series beat the LS last year as well by ~200 units.



Yup, Lexus can't sell cars at as high of prices. But also...

I'll be more convinced people like the looks of the G11 when they don't have to mention it in context of the S-class.

I don't think they lost their way at all. The LS460's lifecycle was extended so all their sedans wouldn't go stale at the same time, which is what just happened. Now they're on a staggered schedule...

I agree with you here. I think some people in this thread will find the design more palatable when the pretty pictures and reviews come out. I won't be one of them though. :p
