It has been reported that Lexus Facebook fans will get to see the car an half-hour ahead of the official reveal, although the specific details provided by Lexus seem rather to indicate that that time slot will be used to introduce those fans (not the car itself)… building anticipation until the vehicle is revealed.
Timing for the official unveiling is 7:15 p.m. EDT/4:15 p.m. PDT on August 18th. AutoGuide will be on hand with photos and video to follow.
The 2013 Lexus GS will be powered by a 3050-hp 3.5L V6 engine with a 0-60 mph time of 5.7 seconds. The V8 model has reportedly been discontinued, although a hybrid version will be offered. An F-Sport model is also expected with an upgraded suspension and brakes, 19-inch wheels and four-wheel steering. Additional highlights will include a massive 12.3-inch display screen on the center stack. Exterior styling will be inspired by the LF-Gh Concept (above).
