2020 Wrapping Up
The 2020 Corvette production will come to an end soon. The Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky, has only 236 remaining cars to build, according to Corvette Blogger.
The majority of these 236 2020 Corvettes will be completed on Friday (today) with the remaining vehicles built on Monday. Yesterday I discussed the final Corvette that would roll off the assembly line. That model will come out of the plant on Monday.
The average number of Corvettes the plant puts out is 180, so if they stick to that pace, there will be about 56 or so Corvettes to complete come Monday morning.
Once those cars are finished, the assembly plant will be able to transition to the 2021 model year. That shouldn’t take too long to get ready for the 2021 model year. The car is essentially the same as the 2020 model year, though there are some minor updates that will need to be accounted for.
The production for the 2021 model year cars will be disrupted by a holiday shutdown at the plant. According to reports, the plant will build cars for the first few days of the week of the 21st of December, and then it will shut down for a short period for the holidays.
Nothing but shutdowns and delays due to lack of parts, COVID, strikes, poor quality control-you name it. 16 months since my deposit and still NO car. The absolute worst buying experience in my 50 years of buying Corvettes.
