All Corvette Z06 LT4 Engines are Now Hand Built in Bowling Green

All Corvette Z06 LT4 Engines are Now Hand Built in Bowling Green


When production of the C7 Corvette Z06 first started, the supercharged 650-horsepower LT4 engine was being assembled in two different locations. The Performance Build Center inside the factory was hand-assembling the LT4 but as Z06 sales were outpacing the PBC’s engine-building capacity, LT4s were also being sent to the Bowling Green Assembly Plant from GM’s Tonawanda powertrain facility in New York to make up the difference.

Now, thanks to the efforts of new plant manager Kai Spande, we are pleased to hear that all Corvette Z06 LT4 engines are now being assembled by hand inside the Performance Build Center in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

This was a different kind of Bash presentation than previous years as most of the major announcements were already known as the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport was revealed a month earlier at Geneva while the four new colors and some new options were confirmed in the 2017 Corvette Order Guide which was made available earlier in the week.

That being said, it’s always great to have members of the Corvette Team around to ask question and gain insight on the new models and we took full advantage of it during the bash.
