2014 Corvette Stingray shipment

If you were one of the first to place an order for a 2014 Corvette Stingray, your car may be on its way.

About 1000 seventh-generation Corvettes have already been built at their Bowling Green, Kentucky assembly plant and shipments are now under way.

Most of those vehicles are expected to be delivered to dealers within the next few weeks, although they may be shipped out of build sequence to expedite delivery, which is a normal practice with any new vehicle launch.

General Motors invested $131-million (US) to upgrade the Bowling Green facility for production of the new Corvette, including approximately $52-million for a new body shop to make its all-new aluminum frame in-house for the first time.

Corvettes have been built exclusively at the Bowling Green plant since June 1981. Production of the new Stingray Convertible is scheduled to begin by the end of this year.
