2013 Range Rovers showing more rake?

Recently we heard that some Evoque design cues are coming to the real thing.  I don’t have a problem with that as long as they don’t bring over the Sports Command Driving Position. That’s fine for the Evoque but would turn the Range Rover into a Mercedes-Benz GL.

I noticed the more raked windshield in the latest round of spy shots of the L405 Range Rover on the ‘Ring: http://www.autoblog.com/2011/08/18/2013-land-rover-range-rover-caught-on-a-ring-run/

So I did some very rough Photoshopping and here are the results



The blue overlay being the current L322 Range Rover.  I used the driver and front wheel for scale.  Again, I realize it’s very rough. Below you can see the two redish lines highlighting the A-pillars from both vehicles with the L322 being on the left and the L405 on the right.l322-l405-overlay-apillar

Another item of interest is the how the roof does slope down, like the Sport or Evoque.  The L322 has a much more horizontal roof line.

One last shot I thought was interesting:


Looking quickly at that, it almost looks like a Rolls Royce Phantom!?!?  They really taped off a lot of the windshield

And finally a couple of profile shots:
