Jensen Motors - Revival Hopes

Revival Hopes

A revival in 2001 was short lived. By the end of 2002 production on their only model – the £40,000 S-V8 – had ceased.

In April 2010 Jensen International Automotive (JIA) was founded. This new company will buy old Jensen Interceptors, and sell them as new ones after a complete restoration, with new engine and interior trim.

In September 2011 CPP, a specialist sports car manufacturer announced they were planning to make a new Jensen, expected to go on sale to the public sometime in 2014. The new Interceptor will be based around an all-aluminium chassis and will feature alloy panels, ‘echoing the four-seat grand tourer layout of the much-loved original’, according to the official press release.

Famous quotes containing the words hopes and/or revival:

    The man whose silent days
    In harmless joys are spent,
    Whom hopes cannot delude,
    Nor sorrow discontent:

    That man needs neither towers
    Nor armour for defence,
    Nor secret vaults to fly
    From thunder’s violence.
    Thomas Campion (1567–1620)

    I do not think a revival of business will be greatly postponed by [Samuel J.] Tilden’s election. Business prosperity does not, in my judgment, depend on government so much as men commonly think.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
