A teaser photo posted on social media points to new model that will take on the BMW M5.

Things are getting serious over at Lexus. The manufacturer of reliable, ultra-luxurious sport sedans and crossovers is taking a page out of rival BMW's //M playbook and is on the cusp of unveiling a new GS-F model at the North American International Auto Show in January. The model will be perched atop the current GS lineup, which includes the 2015 Lexus GS 350 and 2015 Lexus GS 450h.

Now, we know everyone in the Milky Way is simply saying "a new F-Sport model". We'll go so far as to say that the model is probably the new 2015 Lexus GS-F. Horsepower will likely come from the 2015 Lexus RC-F's boisterous V8, albeit with retuned air/fuel mapping. Following the RC-F's lead, the new GS will come with bigger, lighter forged aluminum wheels, aggressive suspension tuning, a thicker rear anti-roll bar and bigger 6-piston brakes.

We predict pricing for the GS 350 F-Sport to be around $67,000, a full $21k more than the current GS 350.
