2014 Corvette Production to Remain Limited Despite High Demand
"We've seen this again and again. You bring out a new Corvette and the demand is sky-high at the beginning, and then it tapers off," said Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter. "It's not worth making that investment [of a second shift], even though for a while we make a lot more money getting those cars out there."
The Bowling Green Assembly Plant, which received a $131-million retooling to commence production of the seventh-generation Corvette is currently producing 160 units per day. GM declined to say how many Corvette orders it has, but rumor has it the waiting list for the sportscar is now at six months.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has a starting price of $51,995, while the convertible will arrive from $56,995.
