Hugely informative piece, yet I consider it to be ultimately rubbish. First off, it does a wonderful job at annihilating any beliefs Land Rover is still alive or even kicking-. And, makes no mention of future product planning; I mean, where is any mention of its hugely anticipated LRX, to change perceptions all its designs need be oblong, rustic and technologically primitive-I'm-too-sleek-to-incorporate-any-new-technologies. Come on, this isn't a mustang. Where's the British in it? Innovation anyone. It's a slippery slope the article makes no mention of! But, that's just me, u know.
