New Land Rover Defender Design Analysis: Our Expert Weighs In

Some design jobs are simply impossible, and directly replacing the 67-year-old Land Rover Defender with a modern vehicle is one such example.

The basic Land Rover is a legend, the strongest remnant of a company no longer extant, having been caught up in the integration and annihilation of the entire British motor industry. In 1885 Rover essentially invented the modern bicycle with equal-size wheels front and rear, the Rover Safety Bicycle. The company moved to motorcycles in the late 1900s and to cars in 1904.

Known for quality, Rover was the first firm to make a gas turbine car, and with the 1970 Range Rover the company invented today’s luxury SUV. Rover was eventually sold piecemeal to BMW and Ford, then passed on to Asian owners—cars to China’s SIAC, utility vehicles to India’s Tata—and Rover itself is no more. Land Rover remains based in the U.K. and retains its experienced

2020 Toyota Supra Design Analysis: Interior, Exterior, Details | Automobile Magazine

“In many ways, this car is a mess. An intriguing and attractive mess, yes, but a mess all the same. Lines don’t flow very well, details don’t really work, there are conflicting lines and surfaces, and there’s no coherent mechanical plan behind the non-running concept car seen in Detroit [at the 2014 auto show]. But go back to the 50 words in the preceding and note the one that counts: attractive.”

For all its oddities and awkwardness, the FT-1’s styling exercise appealed to a wide range of observers, including the most important one, Akio Toyoda, the CEO of Toyota who pushed the concept to production five years later. Our own omniscient Georg Kacher told us long ago Toyota was working with BMW on a joint-venture sports car.
