I'll believe that it's imminent when prototypes are genuinely out and about! Rolling Eyes I'm not convinced that even LR know what's become of the new Defender! 2011 FL2 TD4 XS

Yeah, I though I was going to see a genuine test mule, not a DC100 mash up.

Surely it will be around for LRs 70th. 18MY Velar R-Dynamic SE D240, Fuji White

Its interesting to read, in this and other articles that have appeared over the last few days, that the stylists have finished their work and its engineering that are now working on completing it. With something like the Defender, it really ought to be the other way around!

That first photograph is surely a Jeep with a Landrover (not Land Rover) sticker? The best single thing to look forward to with retirement is reseting the alarm clock snooze function from five minutes to half an hour.

Yeah, I was going up to the dealers today to put £500 deposit down on a new 90, my dealers got 12 since the article came out but I’ve decided against. Underwhelmed by their latest offerings and not sure if LR is the brand for me, I no longer fit in to their customer base.

Short wheelbase RRS. Could just as easily be a mule for a new Evoque?

Looking again, they seem to have reduced the front and rear overhangs compared with the RRS

it must be an improvement .......... you can drive it ......... without your right elbow out the window.

I think they have listened to their old, no longer needed ex-customers.
