If you had plans to take a tour of the Bowling Green Corvette assembly plant, you may want to bump them up. The National Corvette Museum gave notice saying plant tours at the Corvette’s birthplace will end on June 16, 2017.

The Bowling Green assembly plant will shut down to make improvements and upgrades for the 2018 model year of Corvette, as previously reported. The shutdown itself will take place during the third and fourth quarters of 2017. However, General Motors has stated this will not impact availability of the 2017 C7 Corvette and its variants.
In the meantime, the National Corvette Museum and the NCM Motorsports Park will be happy to have you while Bowling Green works to improve its operations, and maybe even gear up for the 2018 C7 Corvette ZR1.
