After Chevrolet pulls the sheet of the 2014 Corvette C7 and its new cross-flag logo at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show early next year, the car will begin production in Bowling Green, Kentucky. And fortunately it will be just in time for summer.
Beginning in the third quarter of 2013 — that’s as early as July — the Bowling Green plant will begin birthing the first production C7 Corvettes, which will probably be auctioned off at the next Barrett-Jackson event. GM has already suspended tours of the Bowling Green plant until further notice so that the facility can begin the necessary preparations without any distractions, and to keep the looks of the next-gen Corvette secret.
For those looking to get a C6 built before the Bowling Green plant gets re-tooled, you have until December to place your order. That means if you want a 427 Convertible, a surefire collector’s car, you better hurry.
