BOWLING GREEN, Kentucky — The redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray hit a major milestone on Wednesday, as the first shipment of cars left the GM Bowling Green Assembly plant en route to dealers.

Corvettes will begin arriving at dealerships within the next few weeks.

GM issued several photos of the cars, carefully wrapped in plastic and loaded onto a car carrier.

"Bowling Green Assembly has produced approximately 1,000 Corvette Stingrays for customer deliveries," said the automaker in a statement. "Most of these vehicles are expected to be delivered to dealers within the next few weeks. To expedite delivery, vehicles may be shipped out of build sequence, which is a normal part of any new vehicle launch."

The plant underwent a $131-million upgrade to support production of the Corvette Stingray, including approximately $52 million for a new body shop to manufacture the car's new aluminum frame in-house for the first time.

The Corvette coupe, which competes with the 2013 SRT Viper, starts at $51,995, including shipping.

GM said production of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible will begin by the end of this year.

Edmunds says: Watching the Stingray coupes roll out of the Bowling Green plant is the next step in an emotional journey that began at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show with the car's unveiling.

  • Still no news regarding the rumored less expensive Corvette C-7 with the 5.3 liter V-8 engine. I hope that it's not just a rumor.....

    I heard about the 5.3V8 version as well.....From what I know- coupe with fixed roof and less ornate body, cloth seats, dual exhaust, smaller wheel/tire pkg, less color choices, automatic only transmission ....and hopefully sell for under 45k (?) -it would suit me just fine. Hell I would even go for a V6 version if they could trim the cost even more ( say 40k).
