Meanwhile, now that the Chinese own Jaguar Land Rover, they are stealing as much intellectual property as possible for a pump and dump, just like they do with many auto manufactures that enter Chinese partnership. I hear these are selling like hotcakes, with all sorts of modern electronic nannies and mechanical goodies for just $20,000. JLR won't last the next 10 years.

Tata Motors in India owns JLR, not the Chinese.

It's for when you drive by a Prius owner so they don't get Triggered.

"They made me go real Jersey"

No, the Jersey thing to do would just be to ignore them and grumble "a-hole" under your breath. That guy represents Jersey as much as the long island clowns on "Jersey Shore" and is, if anything, a transplant that hasn't either stroked out or calmed down.

Source: A transplant that calmed down and just resigned to quietly hate the world.

RRs are super popular here.
I should think so, when a $75K+ 392 tops out at 99 mph and a $35K Sport 2.0T does so at 109 mph. That's gotta hurt.

man, I hadn't see that element comparison before... but I recently sat in the Defender and it feels more like a nice luxury SUV. Also, more removed from the environment than in a Jeep.. Anyhow, I thought the two door 90 had a good look, but for me the the biggest advantage would be tow capacity.

I realize this isnt a real hard core jeeping website but Comparing the 392 JL to the Pretender a tad off the mark. lol

The 392 is the best vehicle jeep has ever put out, with capabilities no other rig can touch. Well worth the money and if you have it do it!

As others have commented, I wish they would put that motor or another v8 motor in the gladiator.

Yup, I'm with you on putting it in the Gladiator! I don't need the towing capacity yet, but when I do, I'd move to a Gladiator, and the 392 would push it over the top!

Technically, you are right. But you know how the Chinese operate.
It's called Chery JLR.
Chery, a Chinese auto maker, now owns 50% share.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chery_Jaguar_Land_Rover

They basically owns you if they pays for you.

Technically your original post was completely erroneous.

And the "Land Win" pic you posted is representative of how the Chinese operate - it's a complete knock-off of the Land Rover Evoque that is built in China. The Chinese copied every detail of that vehicle and are producing it in a "Land Win" plant - their version of Land Rover.

I started liking the new defender until somebody compared it to an element on twitter. I cant get it off my head now.

I also just noticed the new defender has a factory angry grill. I am done with that car.

Technically, it’s called “Land Wind”
