Despite the fact that the Lexus GS was a fairly popular model, the manufacturer took it out of the range. At the same time, the last, fourth generation, received the largest number of fans. For all the time of its presence on the market, this car has established itself as a high-class, comfortable and also very fast sedan in the GS F version, which was equipped with a 5.0-liter petrol V8 with 467 hp.

According to the latest rumors, Lexus plans to "revive" the GS, and take the new Toyota Mirai as a basis for creating the car. Thus, the Japanese model can get a hybrid power plant on hydrogen fuel cells. Independent designer Sugerchow decided to showcase what the new Lexus GS based on the Toyota Mirai could look like in their renders (photo: instagram.com/sugardesign_1).
Although the luxury model was based on a Toyota sedan, the GS clearly displays elements similar to the current Lexus IS. This applies to the angular LED headlights, radiator grille and other details that have been tweaked to give them a sportier shape. At the rear of the sedan, attention is drawn to the monobloc lights and an elegant spoiler.
Latest version of Lexus GS
According to foreign media reports, the GS sedan, based on the Toyota Mirai, may debut next year. If these assumptions prove to be true, the new model from Lexus will use the familiar FCV hybrid powertrain, which currently generates 182bhp. and provides a cruising range of up to 647 km without refueling. Fuel consumption will be 3 liters per hundred kilometers. By the way, if this model eventually goes on sale, then it will be released in a limited batch, since nowadays, hydrogen fuel cell cars are even less common than electric cars. Special filling stations are not even available in every country in the world.
