Well said. The LS 400 is exactly what the doctor (literally) ordered back then and honestly it doesent seem like Lexus has quite cracked the present formula yet with a market conquest as it had.

Car and driver thinks that a new V8 is on the way. But I know Toyota and this could turn into another high power GT-86 scenario. But the rumor of a twin electric turbo V8 is tantalizing.
