2014 Lexus IS announced (is Lexus trolling us?)

This is hideous. Can't believe it is the actual car. Interior is gorgeous though

This might actually be worse than anything Acura and Infiniti have out now.

Shame because the current IS is such a great looking car.

Looks like the powertrains are a carry-over too

Someone please tell me that is a rendering or some tuner's idea of a bad joke.

That Predator analogy is fantastic. Kudos.

Too bad about that grill; rest of the car looks sharp and so does the interior.

you guys are funny...saying its "not as terrible".

Comon' be fair, this iteration is much better than the F-Sport.

Its not a ground breaking, sexy, stunning design, but its not bad looking, pretty non-descript and definitely not offensive.

However, the interior appears to be gorgeous, and of higher quality than BMWs interiors which, at least for my taste, are getting a bit stale.
