Chevrolet unveiled the seventh-gen Corvette — dubber the Stingray — at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show , but it looks like the company needed another eight months to actually finish preparing the sports car and have it ready for the dealerships.
Chevy built approximately 1,000 Stingrays at its Bowling Green assembly plant, and they will hit showrooms within the next few weeks. A truckload of 2014 Corvette Stingrays left the assembly plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky today, September 18th, 2013, so customers should expect their Stingrays pretty soon.
In order to develop the new Stingray, the Bowling Green facility required a $131-million upgrade, including a $52-million investment for a new body shop to manufacture the car’s all-new aluminum frame in-house for the first time. Taking a look at the amount of this investment, it is pretty clear that Chevrolet is banking on the 2014 Corvette Stingray being a smash hit.
