I'm really crossing my fingers that the "new" Defender will resemble the current model and be imported. I do like this although the wood is a bit much.

The teak just brings back wonderful memories of sanding and oiling decks on boats. I dont miss it.

I like the way the seats are in the back. The rest I could do without.

Being a wooden boat builder and all I "like" it.... but it could have been done MUCH better in my opinion. Too much, and those seat backs in gloss white are just way flashy and over the top. Yuck. Tacky.

Wooden boats are very addicting to me, in a Defender the wooden floor just looks bad.

Two things missing: an attached mobile spray tan booth, and interior hook for hanging gold chains.

Exactly! Defenders and the douchebaggery that is yatching couldn't be worlds further apart. That aside even the execution is ridiculous.
