1997 NAS Land Rover Defender 90
Number 950
Complete Nut and Bolt Restoration
Offered for sale is a completely restored, extremely solid 1997 Land Rover Defender 90 NAS Convertible
finished in rare British Racing Green Metallic. This was the final import year for this vehicle and is one of only
438 NAS Defender 90s imported in British Racing Green Metallic in 1997. There were only 1499 convertibles imported
that year and this beauty is stamped #950. I purchased this D90 16 years ago and have loved it ever since.
This D90 just passed Rhode Island Vehicle Inspection with no issues or warnings (July 2017).
The Land Rover Defender 90 came with full-time four wheel drive and high-low range selection, a full roll cage and
factory air conditioning. Mechanically fantastic, this Defender is a pleasure to drive offering a rugged feel that
only the best 4X4 in the world can provide. The rebuilt 4.0L V8 starts effortlessly, idling and pulling strongly
and smoothly through each of the ZF automatic transmission’s gears. Compression is excellent across all cylinders
and the truck’s road manners are exactly what you’d expect from a meticulously restored , well-maintained
Defender.
With DOT regulations bringing the Defender 90’s three-year (`94, `95 and `97) North American run to an end, the
`97 model is the last and arguably best vintage of the iconic truck. Adding to the attraction is `97 is the only
year this model came with an automatic transmission. Consequently, the market on NAS Defender 90s has remained
exceptionally strong, making them one of the few modern-era production vehicles to actually be considered
investment grade.

Jaguar Land Rover offers (some) detail about new Ingenium engine

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 18:33:00 EST

Jaguar Land Rover officially announced its Ingenium family of engines with the unveiling of the 2.0-liter version in the Jaguar XE concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, but it kept details very thin at the time. All we knew was that the new turbocharged mills could be configured to use gasoline or diesel, and be positioned longitudinally or transversely. Months later, JLR is finally letting some more info slip about its new baby, but there are still some big questions to be answered.
For the Ingenium project, Jaguar Land Rover gave its engineers a clean sheet of paper and told them not to worry about using any previous parts or machinery. In the end, the designers came up with a family of turbocharged, aluminum-block engines based around modular, 500cc cylinders to allow it to grow or shrink as the market demanded. The layout was also made adaptable enough to incorporate hybrid drivetrains, if needed. "Being configurable and flexible are the two key strands of Ingenium's DNA because we have future-proofed our new engines from the outset," said said Ron Lee, the company's director of Powertrain Engineering.
To maximize efficiency, Jaguar promises that all versions of the Ingenium engines come with computer-controlled, variable oil pumps and water pumps to use only as much energy as needed. They also get direct injection, roller bearings for the cams and stop/start. The diesel version alone has 17 percent less internal friction than the mill it replaces, the company claims. JLR is also promising class-leading figures for Ingenium's torque and horsepower too, but it's not giving away those specs just yet.

Jaguar and Land Rover to consolidate dealerships

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 11:00:00 EST

Jaguar and Land Rover are set to merge their sales facilities, according to Inside Line. Jaguar Land Rover North America President Andy Gross says 45 percent of Jaguar owners also have an SUV in their stable, so it makes sense to give customers as much exposure to the cat's high-riding cousins and possible. The number of overall outlets will remain the same, and the brands will reportedly remain separate on the showroom floor, however.
So far, just one dealer has made the move to combine under the roof of one 68,000 square-foot facility in Paramus, New Jersey (above), though a further 20 are ready to make the shift and become Jaguar Land Rover outlets. Gross believes the shift is necessary so that his company's dealer network will accurately reflect the company's products. We'll see how cozy the brands are when Jaguar starts rolling out its own SUVs in a few years.

Is Jaguar's 3 Series-fighter the brand's last chance?

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 10:00:00 EST

The upcoming line of compact 3 Series-fighters from Jaguar, often referred to as the Jaguar XS, could consist of a sedan, wagon and possibly a coupe and GT model (think BMW 5 Series GT). The car's all-aluminum architecture also will provide the basis for two new sports utility vehicles. Just how important is the much-touted "baby Jag" project to parent company Jaguar Land Rover? A JLR executive reportedly says the brand's survival is directly linked to the success of the XS, codenamed X760, Autocar reports.
The brand's survival is directly linked to the success of the XS.
"If the X760 fails, it will probably be the end for the [Jaguar] brand," the executive says. But Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar's global brand director, claims Jaguar will "build the most advanced, most efficient, most refined car in that [compact luxury sedan] segment. Not almost as good as, but better than the best in the world."
