Throughout its existence the LS has been a luxury cruiser along the lines of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but that will reportedly change for the next iteration of the Lexus range-topper. Instead, Lexus will aim toward the sportier end of the market, with vehicles like the Jaguar XJ and Porsche Panamera in the LS’ crosshairs.

Exterior

Lexus European chief Alain Uyttenhoven has shed some light about the next generation LS due in 2016. Talking to British magazine Autocar, Uyttenhoven said the new LS will remain the company’s range-topping model and is set to become “more emotional” which probably means it will get a differentiated design compared to the rest of the range. He also ruled out the possibility of adopting the liftback silhouette of the Porsche Panamera but did say “it’s not good for the brand to have Russian doll styling”, indicating it will get a more polarizing design to make the car stand out.

The LS F which is also underdevelopment now is going to utilize twin-turbocharged model of 5.0 liter V8 and this one has the potential of delivering 600 hp.
