Is there a new Defender on the way? 2015-ish?
Are any details, specs, pics (too early?)available from anywhere?

According to LRM, not yet, but they're looking into Euro Ncap thingy engines to fit it with that might extend its life, if I'm reading it correctly.

Euro Ncap? Euro 1,2,3,4,5 are all ratings for emissions not crash safety, so therefor not related to Ncap ;).

Sadly one of the options mentioned to abandon the model :(.

I was told a while back that they had it on the drawing board and were very happy with it.

I also heard it would use the D3 chassis - as they wanted to continue to offer different body styles.

 I have an oven with a 'stop time' button. It's probably meant to be 'stop timer' but I don't touch it, just in case.

i also heard this, it was one of their options because of the new EU emissions regulation and the fact the chassis was so expensive to produce and the front end had to be pedestrian head friendly :angry: but now they have found a new compliant oil burner and i suspect i poorer quality chassis which will inevitably rot faster. or use the dico chassis and plastic panels, they can now product it. :) but i also heard that the new defender will have the 2.8 disco engine but just another roomier :(

ah yes...just dug it out...got the Euro bit right..just its not Ncap!!

Its on page 10 of the October LRM, there's a bit about the new 2012 defender having an super clean engine, and a half page on 'Will Land Rover ditch the Defender?'

Saw the headline in the magazine but my Brother pinched it before I had a chance to read it and inwardly digest. So if you have a good Defender, look after it as prices will increase. Now's the time to buy one!

According to ECR this is the official Land Rover concept.

Don't want to go off on one too soon, but my first feelings are not good.
