No, we are not talking about the new and upcoming Land Rover Defender but the classic Defender. New rumors have suggested that the classic Defender might be making a comeback thanks to Jim Ratcliffe but it looks like that is not going to happen.
Land Rover came out to clear things out. According to Land Rover, there is no chance of that ever happening. They also added that they will not let anyone build their Defender.
It was initially speculated that billionaire Jim Ratcliffe was trying to strike a deal with Land Rover to buy the Defender’s intellectual property rights but it looks that was not the case.
While we won’t be seeing the classic Land Rover Defender making a comeback, we still have the 2020 Land Rover Defender to look forward to. It is believed that the updated model will be coming in 2019.
