Jensen Motors introduced the Jensen GT, a shooting-brake version of the Jensen-Healey, in 1975.
The Jensen GT went into production in 1975 but without the Healey name.After a California owner bought Jensen Motors Ltd. in 1970.With the petrol crisis and the large engine Interceptor, falling sales, a new, more economical small engine car was now needed. So came the 2.0 litre Lotus 907 engine but with the luxury seen in the Interceptor but now a up-market practical car for the time .
The new layout featured a 2+2 layout with a very small back seat. Aside from the body form and seats, there were few differences between the coupe and the roadster.
The new car, dubbed the Jensen GT, would include features such as a full burr walnut fascia and electronic windows that were not available on the standard Jensen Healey. There were even options for leather trim and air conditioning. Due to the extra weight and additional smog control components on the engine, acceleration and top speed were significantly restricted. Before Jensen Motors went into receivership, 509 Jensen GTs were constructed during its short run (September 1975 to May 1976).
