    Don't fret, there's plenty around that are older than you are so they'll be about for a while yet :)

    I read that Land Rover has stamped on this "Defender replacement" project with a mountain of copywright/patent documents and threats of litigation.

    So that they can carry on doing next to bugger all about it themselves, without fear of someone doing it for them!

    I was speaking to someone with insight into JLR who knew something of the new Defender. The comment that was interesting was to think in terms of new Mini v the old Mini. It sounds like it there will be a 'utility' version/versions as well. How accurate that is remains to be seen.

    I’d have preferred it if LR had left a gap of just a few months between the old and the new as well. A 5 year gap is inexplicable.

    Usual JLR situation- poor management, missed targets and lack of clear decision-making led to the old Defender running out of time before the new one was close to ready. Originally it was planned for 2015MY...

    It's on the very first post in this thread, but it was back in 2013, so I'm not sure it'll still be working.

    There is a Defender announced for 2020 and I have seen several in-depth video reviews of it on Internet. So on the positive side your petition worked. On the negative side it looks nothing like a LR or a Defender.

    I'm not sure why you want to pretend a particular thread never happened. You could just ignore it
