That's the dumbest "guess" at what it will look like. So good to be using the RRS platform. Good choice there.

yeah, those "artists conceptions" in car mags always suck. I hate that "is this the next corvette?" crap.

Is that artist rendition an Amigo look-a-like?
Second version is better.

Interesting video........Of course, the "Yank" seems to be the only one on the right track!!


However, if Land Rover comes out with this orange thing, I don't think I'll ever buy another new Land Rover again .............

Why does that orange motoring appliance make me think a Honda Element and a RR Phantom had a drunken tryst?

May I offer an example of an American 4x4 automotive manufacturer who has done an exceptional job at NOT SCREWING UP A GOOD THING. And it even looks good in Orange!!! (unlike that "thing" in my last post)

To the Boys at Land Rover, if you're listening, there's NO NEED to "reinvent the wheel".

Then & Now: (see pics below)

I must point to the 90s when Jeep did screw up the design with the square headlamps. Seemed like most manufacturers gave that a try for a few years (Jag XJs, Mustangs, Jeep/Chrysler, GM), then made a big point of marketing the hell out of going back to the design's roots. Mind you, this happened after "New Coke" too!

"Square Headlights"? Come on......I wouldn't exactly equate that with "screwing up the design". Cosmetically, it was about the only thing they changed. There's a difference between putting the square vs. round headlights in an overall design that hasn't changed since before Land Rover were even conceived, and that "abomination" of a concept above. Aside from the headlights, you could still tell that a YJ Wrangler was a Jeep and it still did what a Jeep was supposed to do. I'd gladly take a Defender with "square headlights" if the rest of the design wasn't screwed up. Just my $.02................

P.S.- Speaking of "squared headlamps", have you looked at either of those Defender concepts above?

The first one doesnt look half bad... That orange thing is an abomination.

On another note... What does everyone think of the fact that Land Rover is coming out with a Front wheel drive Range Rover?

Dilutes the brand elitism but expands the potential we'll get some future product that resembles a Defender.

LR is crushing their sales goals with the 2010 lineup right now which is good.
