Jensen Motors introduced the Jensen GT, a shooting-brake version of the Jensen-Healey, in 1975. The new configuration was a 2+2 design with a very limited back seat. Aside from the body shape and seating, relatively little differed from the roadster. Acceleration and top speed were slightly reduced due to the increased weight and additional smog control components on the engine.

During its short run (Sept 1975 – May 1976), 509 Jensen GTs were built before Jensen Motors went into receivership.

On the 25th of February 2015, Autocar published a report stating that the Jensen marques latest owners, "The Jensen Group" would begin production of a new Jensen GT car in 2016, costing around £350,000. [2]
