What happened to the lights? Did the designer have a stroke?

In 10 years the F30 M sport will look classy.

The only good thing about this car is the LFA gauge

Oh dear. What a marvellous mess! Was the designer having an out of body moment?

That Lexus is ugly. It looks like they were having too much fun designing the car in Z-brush.

I don't find it that ugly. It is a bit overwrought, looks more like a concept car, so it will not age well. But it is certainly very interesting. We knew about the spindle grille for while, and overall it looks surprisingly similar to the LF-LC concept, which is quite striking.



The most interesting thing would be how this thing drives. The new GS is already known to be a better driver's car than the F10, so can the new IS be sportier than the F30?

Its unbelievable... just when you thought japanese have learned from western design they come up with something like this.
What a joke... Cant they take a look at hyundai's for instance? Or even kia in certain ways.

What a grotesque car.

Photos comparison demonstrates a cultural/geographical divide and Lexus manges to make the F30 look sedate.

I cannot put to words how ugly I think that car is. I mean I know lexus has gone crazy the past few years, but that is just the most inelegant premium car I have ever seen. I don't care if it drives like an E30 M3 I would not buy it. That is how ugly I think the car is.

I like it. I'd pick the IS over F30, epecially if it drives better, and it likely does, when even an ATS drives "better". Interior is probably best in class now. It will be interesting: new C Class and new A4 to come. Hope I'll be soon back in a RWD Alfa Romeo though. Will be a very interesting battle in 2014. BMW vs. Mercedes vs. Audi vs. Lexus vs. Alfa Romeo (back in the game).
