Just before starting the production of the Corvette C7 in 2013, GM added 150 new jobs at its Bowling Green Corvette plant. That number rose to 250 very next year. Right now, as the C7 spends its last days on the Bowling Green production lines, GM announced that it would add a new workforce of 400 workers just before the mid-engine 2020 Corvette C8 production starts later in 2019. The move of adding more jobs is a commonality with the introduction of the new cars. Especially ones that make a significant departure in terms of design and underlying architecture compared to its predecessors. The C7 was a significant departure compared to the C6. Actually, it shared only two parts with it – the cabin filter and the rear latch for the removable roof panel. On the other hand, I feel that the C8 will share more with the C7 despite such a profound change in its form. The added complexity of the new design could be a part of the reason for the significant workforce increase.
