So nine months after first debuting at the Detroit Auto Show 2013, the very first examples of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray have begun travelling to dealers across the U.S.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is being produced at the Bowling Green Assembly facility. Plant Manager of General Motors’ Bowling Green Assembly plant Dave Tatman said, “It’s an amazing sight 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.”
Unfortunately for some, the Corvette C7 won’t exactly be heading to dealers everywhere in the U.S. Back in late January it was revealed that General Motors was forcing businesses to meet a sales-volume threshold to stock the car and those dealerships which failed to sell at least four Corvette’s in 2012, are being left out from the new C7-generation Corvette.
Byron Hansen, from the Chevrolet dealership in Brigham City, Utah stated, “I don’t anticipate getting the new Corvette this year, and many smaller dealers like me won’t get it either.
Dealers also confirmed that they’ll be unable to stock the new Corvette simply for eye-candy purposes.
