Of course, the weird Lexus spindle grille is there, grinning wide while flanked by angular, cartoon rabbit headlights. The engine’s conspicuously missing, so maybe there could be a revolutionary reveal in the works.

Lexus is saying the LS will have a “coupe-like silhouette” so rear headroom could be crap. Oh, and the LS will be more dynamic, because that’s always a good thing to tell everyone. We’ll see.
