News Chevrolet Corvette Production Resumes at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant

Chevrolet Corvette Production Resumes at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant

Business will get back to normal next Tuesday at the Corvette plant following a temporary closure


  • A fire broke out following tornadoes recently which forced the plant’s closure.

  • Corvettes will once more roll off the line starting next week.


General Motors’ still ultra-hot C8 Chevrolet Corvette has had a tough early life. In 2020 alone, the Bowling Green Assembly Plant where the supercar is built was idled three times due to parts shortages causing many delivery delays for anxious Vette buyers.

This latest production halt was caused by a series of deadly tornadoes that caused a fire to break out at the plant a week ago. While no one was hurt, GM had no choice but to idle the assembly line this past week in order to repair the facility.

Automotive News reports that Chevrolet will see Corvettes once again roll off the production next week. Some employees will return on Monday and the entire workforce will return on Tuesday.

There’s no word as to how many cars were not built or how many, if any, Corvettes were damaged during the storms or the ensuing fire.
