Corvette Production Screeches To A Halt As GM Admits Parts Shortage Idles Plant

February 22, 2023 – Chevrolet has idled the Bowling Green, Kentucky plant for the rest of this week as a parts shortage has shut down production of the popular sports car. The plant employs over 1,300 people and plans to resume production on Monday, February 27th. General Motors has not stated which parts are in short supply but has only indicated that “the parts shortage is not due to a semiconductor chip issue.” No other cars are affected in the shutdown as only Corvette Stingrays and Corvette Z06 vehicles are produced in Bowling Green. This news is disappointing to prospective Corvette owners waiting to purchase a vehicle as the production of the mid-engine sports car has suffered many setbacks in the past few years, due to Covid shutdowns and parts issues.
