Report: Land Rover to axe Defender after 67 years in 2015, successor is planned

Despite the fact that North America stopped officially receiving the Land Rover Defender in 1998, production for the classic and legendary off-roader continued elsewhere and for markets abroad due to high demand.

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.
