Here’s a great picture that shows just how fast the 1400-car shipping lot at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant is filling with brand spanking new 2014 Corvette Stingrays. We understand that the Quality Control process has been very tight, but with this many Stingrays lined up and ready to go, it most likely means that the QC isn’t finding many issues and production is ramping up.
Here’s a welcomed sight through the fence at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green. Two rows of 2014 Corvette Stingray convertibles in various colors all lined up and looking ready for some sunshine.
Over the weekend at Corvettes at Carlisle, select GM engineers in attendance gave a series of quickie seminars (5-10 minutes and then Q&A) at the top of each hour. On Saturday morning, Steve Grilli, Bowling Green Assembly’s Quality Manager spoke and confirmed that retail production for the 2014 Corvette Stingray is underway as well as some other interesting tidbits of Stingray news.
We know that the most important question right now on people’s minds is when will production start for retail customers who have ordered the 2014 Corvette Stingray?

The dream of a National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park is roaring closer and closer to reality with each passing day.
Corvette enthusiasts and community and state leaders gathered Friday, June 28th in Bowling Green, Kentucky for a groundbreaking ceremony for the $20 million, 184-acre, dual-track park located just across from the museum off I-65.
It looks like the Corvette Assembly Plant has been busy cranking out examples of the 2014 Corvette Stingrays because they are literally everywhere in Bowling Green this weekend for the Corvette Museum’s 60th Anniversary celebration.

The Motorsports Park near the National Corvette Museum continues to roar closer and closer to reality every day.
Crews hope to be done in 45 days as they began clearing the 184 acres of land last week for the track, which will be located off Porter Pike across from the museum on the opposite side of I-65.
The clearing hopefully is just a prelude to the official groundbreaking as early as next month, museum Executive Director Wendell Strode told The Bowling Green Daily News.
No more will you be seeing auto transports rolling down the road filled with colorful Corvettes from the Bowling Green Assembly Plant. GM will be transporting the new 2014 Corvette Stingrays to dealers with a special new cover to help protect the new cars as they are in transit.
