Bowling Green Assembly

Welcome

GM began production of the esteemed Corvette at the Bowling Green, KY assembly plant in 1981, and the facility has remained the exclusive home of the Corvette for over 30 years.  Known around the world as America’s sports car, the Corvette exemplifies the definition of innovation. The Corvette is the world’s longest-running, continuously produced passenger car with more than 1.6 million produced. When the first Corvette rolled off the line over 60 years ago, it was born an icon, and GM has continued this reputation for the car with six decades of refinement and innovation.

GM has demonstrated time and time again that its goal with each new generation of the Corvette is to raise the bar for performance cars; the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is no exception. To build the Stingray, the plant underwent a $131 million-upgrade, including $52 million for an all-new body shop. The site consists of 212 acres, and the plant has one million square feet –equivalent to 22 acres or 17 football fields. Man and machine work together in harmony to bring to life the perfect balance of technology, design and performance.
