Lexus to challenge BMW and Mercedes
 
Lexus GS Challenge

Could they have found an older lady to be the host? The whole thing sounds like a paid promo for Lexus.

"In many cases they are now as good as their German counterparts"

next sentence:

"Lexus hasn't just maintained status quo, they've really raised the bar"

How can you raise the bar and yet not be better than the competition. What a shitty series of videos. Also, who the hell buys a 5 series or GS based on autocross performance?

Sweet! Some of those shots were filmed with a GoPro! haha.
I still want a Lexus ISF :(

I like the 2012 GS model more than the new 2013..
IMO, the 2012 looks more baller status :/

the new 2013 has a rear of a hyundai.... no?

Lol nice try.

lexus compares its top of the line gs f-sport with E350 and 535i. its like telling consumers the best lexus can do is to match their competitor's lower end products. thats a terrible message to get across. if they really want to demonstrate to consumers lexus is the best choice, reserve "f-sport" name for the gs thats a M5 or E55 killer and leverage their "toyota" reliability image. who wound't want a m5 thats reliable?

we all know lexus owners pull some serious Gs coming out of their driveways every morning. so this is super useful.

gs-f is suppose to be the e63 or M5 competitor

gs f-sport is like a 5 series with the msport package or an e350/550 w/ the amg package

toyota86 03-09-2012 08:18 PM

^i stand corrected. shows how little i know about current toyota stuff lol
i stopped following toyota after the supra and lexus after the is300 went out of production
didnt even know there was a gs-f

CharlieH 03-09-2012 08:33 PM

i can see why someone would pick the f sport over the competition but there's no way in hell anyone's gonna buy the GSF. just look at their ISF sales... oh right there are none because everyone paid an extra 10k and got the m3

People buy a Lexus because they are tired of owning BMW and Merc !

This is actually true, Mercedes and BMW are like Civics in Richmond.

yeah but GS F-Sport is still several thousand $$$$ cheaper. :accepted:

C5_Ryder 03-10-2012 05:06 AM

Its cheaper for a reason. If the price is the same , which car would you buy?

It's a nice car, but overpriced IMO. And also, if you're taller than 5'10", it's gonna be a bit tight...(and it becomes a 3 seater) lol

ok I don't know about this.

So what you're saying is, Lexus owners can't afford BMW and Mercedes.

Bill Gates owns a Lexus LS...

boostfever 03-11-2012 12:34 AM

he also owned a Ferrari F50. lexus owners prob can afford an F50 too.
