        Crossposted from CorvetteBlogger.com:


        Production of the 2020 Corvette will be halted this Thursday and Friday after the Mexico supply chain has been impacted by new coronavirus restrictions. General Motors sent an alert sent out regarding the production stoppage which has been detailed in a report by The Detroit News [subscription req].

        The GM alert says that Mexico has updated its COVID restrictions, which has impacted suppliers in the country. The specific vendors aren’t named, but we do know that the C8 Corvette’s wiring harnesses are among the parts that are made in Mexico.

        “Due to a temporary parts supply issue, we can confirm that Bowling Green Assembly will not run production on Thursday, Nov. 12 or Friday, Nov. 13,” said GM spokesman David Barnas to The Detroit News. “We expect to resume normal operations on Monday, Nov. 16. Our supply chain, manufacturing and engineering teams are working closely with our supply base to mitigate any further impact on production.”

        This is the second production shut down for the Corvette plant over supplier issues in the last month. The plant was previously closed during the week of October 12th.

        “I don’t know what happened down there, something happened to the supply line down there,” said Jack Bowers, president of the UAW Local 2164 representing Bowling Green workers. “But they said we should be good to go next week, start back up Monday full tilt two shifts.”

        Production of the 2020 Corvette was expected to wrap by December 7th with the 2021 models starting on December 8th. We’re not sure how this will affect the calendar, so stay tuned!

                  It’s probably frustrating for the line workers, too

                    On the bright side, no one will get a C8 manufactured on Friday the 13th!

                          Sorry that happened to you all. Amazing how many MECF members’ C8’s were going to be built this Thursday or Friday. . Glad however that all of yours will be re-scheduled for either Monday or Tuesday.

                            This is a good indication of how fragile the supply chain is. The 2021 C8 is in for some very difficult times. My car is scheduled for the week of 11/30.. Worker safety comes first .

                              I believe several of the Forum members were supposed to have their cars roll off yesterday. Sure hope that happened!!
