DETROIT -- Chevrolet plans to end production of the 2013 Corvette in February and idle the sport car's assembly plant in Bowling Green, Ky., for six months as it retools for the highly anticipated all-new model.
Production of the redesigned 2014 Corvette is scheduled to begin in August or September next year, General Motors said today.
GM said it has told Chevy dealers the factory will stop accepting guaranteed specific orders for the 2013 Corvette at the end of October. Dealers can continue to submit orders for the 2013 Corvette, the last of the sixth-generation of the car, until the end of December. But GM won't guarantee that a specific combination of trim level and options will be built.
