With the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport Toyota's luxury marque hopes to add some adrenaline to the brand.

Lexus executives will have a busy couple days during the upcoming SEMA show as they unveil an assortment of concept and production vehicles that will include the next-generation GS F Sport.

The idea is to instill a little bit of attitude into what might best be described as a sedate, even boring brand better known for its reliability than adrenaline-inspiring designs and performance.  Along with the 2013 Lexus GS 350 F Sport, the Toyota luxury division will reveal some show car offerings that could very well help redefine the brand.

“The all-new GS 350 with F SPORT package will offer our customers more agility and a sportier appearance,” suggested Mark Templin, Lexus general manager. “The racing-inspired F SPORT components were precision engineered for this vehicle, providing quality performance without compromise.”


Lexus Teases GS 450h Hybrid and GS F-Sport

Targeting the extremes.

Lexus offers a hint of what's to come with the GS F-Sport and GS 450h hybrid models.

Less than two weeks after lifting the covers on its next-generation GS 350 sedan, Lexus is offering up a tease of what’s to come, later this year, when it formally unveils two other spin-offs from the midsize GS line: the performance-oriented F-Sport and gas-electric GS 450h.

The hybrid will make its debut at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, an increasingly common backdrop for environmentally-friendly products.  The F-Sport, meanwhile, will be revealed at the annual SEMA show, an aftermarket extravaganza in Las Vegas.

The GS has traditionally been the sportiest line in the Lexus model mix, other than the track-ready IS-F, (which was the first F-Sport model).  Curiously, the original GS 450h was intended to demonstrate the performance potential of gas-electric technology, though critics said it was neither fish nor fowl, neither sporty enough nor fuel-efficient enough.
