Currently the 2013 Lexus GS 350 is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 306 hp that is mated to 6-speed sequential-shift transmission. The only other option in the range is the GS 450h hybrid that mixes the same V6 with an electric motor.
In a world where Audi makes money from the S-Line range, and BMW revealed the M Sport package for the 3-Series saloon way before the actual M3 was show, Lexus is now doing the same.

What we mean is that the F-Sport version of the GS will make its official debut at the 2011 SEMA Show. You can expect this to bring deeper spoiler, a bigger set of heels and a more focused ride and steering setup to the existing 350.

Rumor has it that Lexus is also working on a GS-F that will take on the mighty new BMW M5 with a supercharged version of the V8 powerplant of the IS F, producing about 550 hp. As for the gearbox, the two aforementioned models will probably share the eight-speed automatic transmission.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
