On weekends when news is as slow as Ents, we go deep into the abyss of finding interesting stories to write about – hopefully, something to entertain your lazy weekend. We turn to YouTube and sometimes Tiktok for topics that will catch your attention. When worse comes to worst, we even check small car brands – brands like Donkervoort and today we discovered something really fascinating.
Pardon our ignorance but did you know that Donkervoort has a clothing line? We didn't and we're actually embarrassed for being oblivious of this fact.
However, it looks like this Corvette C8 production halt will be extended for another week, GM Authority has learned. This was confirmed to the publication by Thompkins, still connected to the temporary supply issue.
To recall, a previous production cause happened from March 1 to 5 due to lack of availability of transmission components. Before that, there was also a stoppage from January 29 to February 16 for reasons still not related to the global chip shortage.
Truth be told, the Bowling Green factory in Kentucky has a lot of things on its hands right now being the exclusive assembly plant for the Corvette since the '80s. Apart from the highly-coveted Corvette C8 Stingray, derivatives of the mid-engine 'Vette are also currently in development, with pre-production units of the Corvette Z06 being built there since April.
With the prototype already being tested on public roads early this year, the production version could debut this July. Then again, the current production woes aren't working for the Bowtie brand and could alter the timeline.
As always, we'll keep an ear to the ground for further developments so watch this space.
