As per GM’s national constraints report on February 15, 2021 –  Corvette production continues to feel the effects of supplier restrictions

Other than some bizarre winter weather hitting the middle of the U.S. and closing the Corvette Assembly Plant the last couple of days, 2021 Corvette production continues to chug along, but not without hiccups.

Below is a summary of 2021 Corvette production updates and constraints that we’ve put into chronological order:
