Last sixth-generation Chevy Corvette leaves the factory


The final example of a sixth-generation Chevrolet Corvette — a white 427 convertible heading to General Motors' corporate museum — rolled from the assembly line in Bowling Green, Ky., this morning. The plant will now retool to build the seventh generation Corvette, the convertible edition of which we'll see more of this weekend. Unfortunately for GM, the retooling will take much of 2013, leaving dealers with a dwindling stock of Vettes; last month, the Corvette was outsold by the Ford Raptor.
