The MacDonald Partnership, which pulled out of a rescue deal for Jensen last month citing “irresolvable issues”, has renewed its interest in the carmaker on behalf of an unnamed investor. TMP wanted to move production from Merseyside to a plant in South Africa and says this possibility is still likely.
A Home Counties millionaire businessman is also understood to be willing to buy the company and keep production on Merseyside. Reports suggest he wants to make engineering improvements to the S-V8 Roadster, which would delay production by several months.
Jensen Motors appointed PKF last month after failing to raise new investment. Its 35 staff were made redundant.
