Future Defender Rumors

Thought I would start a thread on here about future Defender news/rumors/leaks. I've been keeping a close eye on other car sites and haven't been seeing much new info since McGovern said they were moving away from the DC100 concept direction. I'm hopeful it will be closer in keeping with the legend this site is dedicated to - has anybody else heard anything newsworthy lately?

I read the interview where they said they moved completely away from the DC100 concept, hopefully to keep the iconic boxish look and would be priced affordably starting at $40,000 and would be the base for several "Defender" models. All available online. However it won't be simple to maintain. It will flood American and challenge Jeep KIA Honda directly. I don't think it will hurt the real Defender market because we will all be saying "That's not a REAL" Defender. It will make new Owners want a real one!
