You know what? I’m actually a fan of what Lexus has been up to lately. For decades they were the most boring brand around. And now, while they may not be at the top of the performance game, they’re at least making stuff that should please enthusiasts on some level, like the new GS F.

Because of his discriminating tastes, we sent pro racer Robb Holland to test the car in Portugal, and he came away impressed. Good. It’s nice that Toyota is trying these days. I can even live with that controversial Lexus styling, even if it is hardly what I’d consider classically beautiful.

I am, however, kicking myself for not making this the headline:

Well played, Der Sportwagoner. Well played.
