Plant Tours

In 1981, General Motors moved production of the Chevrolet Corvette from St. Louis, MO to 600 Corvette Drive, Bowling Green, KY. Known as “America’s Sports Car,” visitors can watch an icon in the making. The Corvette is the world’s longest-running, continuously produced passenger car with more than 1.6 million produced. The GM site consists of 212 acres, and the plant has one million square feet –equivalent to 22 acres or 17 football fields, under roof.
