Is it still worth buying a Land Rover Defender?

I love the Land Rover Defender. Is it worth still buying one?

If you want a proper 4x4 this is still the best thing to buy and given the industry that's built up supplying parts and spares for them, you will have no issues keeping it on the road. They also hold their value well. Definitely a good time to buy.
