Details about the C7 have been scarce to say the least. Rumors even went as far as suggesting twin-turbo small V8, but the company has remained tight-lipped about everything.

What we do know is that the seventh-generation American sportscar will enter production. A report has emerged according to which GM will shut the Bowling Green assembly plant in Kentucky to outside visitors starting September 14.

This indicates they are preparing to retool the factory for C7 production.

Bowling Green has about 400 employees that assemble Corvettes on a one-shift, 10-hour, Monday-Thursday production schedule.  Approximately 50,000 tourists from around the world visit the plant annually.
