    Land Rover 'investment blitz'

    The new line up of cars was inadvertently leaked when it flashed up during a power-point display
    Variations include a family of six luxury Range Rovers, five leisure Discovery and Freelander models, and five iterations of the utilitarian Defenders.
    Land Rover is aiming to capture around 3 per cent of the global sports utility market by 2020










    This is an Autocar/Daily Mail story. So make of that what you will.

      I really, really hope Defender #4 is real and that awful modern thing will be sold side by side with the current one.

        Doubtful, isn't the old one going out because they just can't keep it legal with new regulations?

          It will be eventually, but they keep pushing it back. Currently it'll finish being produced in 2017. The chances are production will move to India before then.

            I hope the new Defender is priced to compete with the Wrangler and Xterra, and doesn't become a rich toy.

              When the hell did JLR hire Dany Bahar?

                They already had Dany Bahar and Swizz Beatz in one person: Victoria Beckham.

                  It'll still be legal somewhere. Just like Toyota still makes the J70 Land Cruiser to sell to places like Africa and the Middle East.

                    Yep. Until it becomes too costly to refurbish the machinery they'll keep cranking them out for whatever market that will still buy them.

                      So the Blitz is coming to Coventry again? Good work, D-Fence, good work.
                      Battered and weary after the craziness of the 1960s, the self-righteousness of the 1970s and the greed of the 1980s, I want to go home again, oh, so desperately - home to that land of drive-in restaurants and Chevy Bel-Airs, making out and rock 'n' roll and drag races and Studebakers, Elvis and James Dean and black leather jackets. Not that I ever owned a black leather jacket.

                        Unbelievable lol

                        But yeah - people still exist that ask why JLR is at the top of my 'want to work for' list.

                          I actually like the DC100, or that style... I think it looks modern, utilitarian, and has enough hints of the Defender in it to replace it. If they can make it reliable, relatively simple, and cheap(ish) I think it will sell rather well here...
