11/14/2011—The Chief Engineer behind the 2013 Lexus GS, Yoshihiko Kanamori, has had his share of transpacific flights these past few months. Just last week, he was on hand at a California racetrack to showcase the vehicle, as well as speak to the Lexus magazine team about some upcoming stories. We were also fortunate to catch up to him at the vehicle's unveiling last August in Pebble Beach, and Mr. Kanamori, generous as ever with his time, was gracious enough to grant the above interview.
