In the January issue of Japanese magazine MAG-X, Lexus Enthusiast, an online lexus forum, has discovered a report in it claiming that the GS will be dropped in 2018. The successor was supposed to be launched in the same year too.
In the article, Toyota is believed to have suspended the development of the next-generation GS after realising that it is no longer needed in the firm’s range. It cite that the new LS luxury sedan would overlap with the V6-powered GS with its newly-adopted V6 engine. The last LS was powered by an eight cylinder engine.
