February 28, 2013 was a sad day at GM's Bowling Green factory in Kentucky as the final C6 Corvette rolled off the assembly line. The last Corvette was a white 427 convertible collectors' edition model which will be heading to GM's Heritage Collection in Detroit.
During its nine years in production, the Bowling Green plant built a total of 215,100 C6 Corvettes.
Now the plant is undergoing a retooling to begin production of the new C7 Corvette Stingray later this year.
If you're one of those people who still wants to get their hands on a C6 Corvette, don't fret. Automotive News said that Chevrolet dealers had a stockpile of 6,100 Corvettes on February 1st, giving them a five month supply.
