The rumors of dropping the GS have been around for a while, but now it seems like they're thinking of dropping the IS too.

 

They just redid the ES and LS, though.

I think I've seen maybe one IS and one LS in the last few months.   I saw a GS last year.

So, Lexus is pondering the fate of their sedans and considering dropping them altogether and everyone lauds their bold move. Ford does it and everyone is losing their minds...

They obviously need to do some weeding, but I think exiting the sedan market will take a little longer.  I definitely think Lincoln needs to exit the sedan market but Lexus has a far larger customer base to transition.

You won't miss them, by the way......they'll be the vehicle poking along in the left lane everyone is trying to get around.....though that could also be a Camry or Corolla (it's amazing, any time there's someone poking along, it's 80% of the time a Camry, Corolla, or Lexus ES.
