    Very nice. Definitely stands out. I like the aggressive stance and the mean rear end staring back at you. I want this car!!!

    If he did, he should take them down and watermark them to ensure credit. Otherwise, somebody may steal them and claim them as an "exclusive spy shot".

    Not bad pics, BTW.

    No, I did not take these photos. The photos were taken by a guy (desiZ) on my350z.com.

    it really is a poorly designed and proportioned, ugly son of a bitch isnt it? Look at the taillights and how they completely fail to integrate into the overall form. Its a terrible design overall.

    Too bad the CTS will be redesigned within a year of this.



    The Lexus design language is starting to show through. I wasn't seeing it before, but the GS and IS have a lot in common. Good for the brand. Too bad the 06 Sonata shares the theme.

    The Sonata came out at exactly the same time, so no.

    Well, I don't think this will put the CTS and BMW 3 Series out to paster, but I do think it will give an even bigger bump to the best selling luxury brand in the U.S. The current IS is pretty nice, but has become largely forgotten. I think this model is more mainstream and with more engine and body style choices, it should outsell the current IS by a good margin. Lexus is just getting harder to catch, that's all.
