The Lexus LS might not have the same cultural gravitas as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or the BMW 7 Series, but the LS remains one seriously competent and comfortable full-size sedan. While its biggest, fanciest trim shuffled off into the sunset when the latest generation was released, a new report claims the 600h trim might be due for a comeback after all.
