The demand was so high in fact, when Land Rover attempted to completely redesign it, feedback rioted against it, forcing LR back to the drawing boards. Since then, Land Rover has been stuck trying to decide what happens for the next generation of Defender.
In a recent report from Automotive-Business-Review.com, word is that the Defender will cease production in December of 2015, ending the model’s overall 67-year production run.
A successor is planned, though no details were spared in regards for what’s next.
