2014 Lexus GS350 F Sport

Lexus has built a brand around refinement, quietness, precision, American-consumer-friendly ergonomics and reliability for luxury-seeking individuals and families. Dead-center in their lineup sits the GS sedan, a utility player on the luxury sedan bench, now bolstered by an F Sport package aimed at some of the more focused sport sedan competition.   The original GS debuted in 1993 and has quietly gone through three generations including those with V8 engines optional.
