The GS F would take over the GS range from the GS 450h, a powerfully smooth sedan that features a 3.5-liter, 338-horsepower V6. The GS F takes a step toward BMW M5 territory, borrowing the 467-hp 5.0-liter V8 from the RC F.
According to our source’s rendering, the hot GS could wear a new front splitter and rear spoiler, as well as a racer boy two-tone color scheme. From the rear, it looks to employ the RC’s trick quad-tailpipe exhaust setup. It should debut in the fourth quarter of 2015.
A saloon version of the RC F is reportedly in the cards as well, adding some practicality and versatility to what is now Lexus’ sportiest vehicle (can you tell we still miss the LFA?).
Expect the four-door RCF to arrive in 2016. If we play our cards right, a convertible version may follow that.

Another nice nugget from Autocar’s dispatch is the possibility of a third, brand-new model, which may be released at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show.
The vehicle’s identity is still under wraps, but there are rumors that it will be a production version of the LF-LC concept that wowed at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. Keep an eye out for it in November.
