Lexus is scheduled to introduce the redesigned GS 350 at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, but a new report is indicating the company is also considering a coupe variant.

Details are limited, but product planning manager Ben Mitchell told Inside Line, "We're really trying to increase the emotional qualities of our brand. We want to emphasize exterior styling and dynamics." He also added the company is conducting a "...fairly active study of coupe opportunities."

If the model is eventually approved for production, it would take the place of the SC 430 and compete with the Audi A5/S5, BMW 6-Series and Mercedes E-Class coupe. Additionally, we can expect it to feature a 3.5-liter V6 and a starting price of approximately $50,000.
