Is it me or has the new RR grown quite a bit in length over the current car? The rear overhang seems to be the same size if not bigger but the wheelbase is much greater.

I love this picture, it somehow reassures me that no matter how soft it may look, it is still a fully capable off-roader. If only I could afford one....

all that picture does is reassure me that Land Rover employs photoshoppers

I did not say they didn't have a hand in 'things' but no direct influence on design. BMW on the other hand did go as far as providing their own designs, but these were never chosen
Making the statement that they had 'no direct influence on design' is not credible.

Here is a quick facelift I did for the rear/side. Got rid of the idiotic 'vents', integrated the bumper more, adjusted the lights, and reduced the curvature of the front. It isn't perfect, but I think its miles better than the real thing.

I've rethought my opinion. I like it now. A lot. It's very evolutionary, but in a good way. The front anf rear lights are decidely explorer/evoque, but it works. Much more upscale and smooth.

Really stunning

Unfortunately, for many years, Land Rover reliability was GARBAGE.
Land Rover was even nominated as the UK's most UNRELIABLE car manufacturer (especially the build quality of 2003-2007 Freelander was atrocious)

I do hope they do something about it though............and thankfully, from what I'm reading, they might be doing so. Most of the user reports on the Evoque seem to point out better reliability.

Let's hope it stays that way because Land Rover needs to get rid of its past reputation of cheap**** build-quality vehicles. Hopefully the Evoque and this all-new Range Rover will pave the way into a more positive direction and improved quality and reliability for Land Rover vehicles.

The move from the front fender/wing to the door looks troubled at the bottom.

You're absolutely right there. It was the reason why Jaguar was saddled with the S-Type, rather than something that the Jaguar engineers wanted to design ;)
