The aircraft was called the Perigrine I believe. It may have been a
casualty of the spinoff of Gulfstream from Grumman. However this is a
guess at best. Maybe someone else can shed some light on this.

I had noticed that these new single engine busines jet proposals bear
a striking resemblance to it though. The only thing I can think of that has
changed since then is the acceptance of single engine aircraft for charter
flights in instrument conditions (Cessna Caravan, TBM700, PC-12). Maybe
this is enough to revive the concept of a single engine jet successfully.
