General Motors’ Bowling Green assembly plant in Kentucky has finished the first 1,000 Corvette Stingrays, arguably the most anticipated vehicle of the year, and the vehicles are now being shipped to select locations.
2014 Corvette Making the Drive to Cedar Rapids
Plant leaders and managers expressed their excitement for new vehicle and their pride at being part of the 2014 Corvette’s production.
Plant manager Dave Tatman said it was “amazing to see the transporters filled with Stingrays heading to customers in all corners of the country”.
“The pride at Bowling Green is overwhelming and it shows in the tremendous quality and attention to detail going into each one of these new Corvettes.”

In preparation for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, the plant underwent a $131 million dollar project, which included $52 million towards a new body shop that is manufacturing the car’s all-new aluminum frame. This marks the first time that the frame has been built in-house.
A Classic Sports Car Becomes Technological Wonder
The fuel-efficiency and acceleration is bolstered by the lightweight aluminum frame, while the roaring engine gives the z51-equipped model a 0-60 time of 3.8 seconds. The car can also run the quarter-mile in 12 seconds at 119 mph.
Available features like the performance exhaust system and magnetic selective ride control make the 2014 Corvette Stingray one of the most technologically advanced sports cars ever made.
