The Bowling Green Assembly Plant's $131,000,000 long completed, with some previous components upgraded that had been in existence since the C4 production, C7 production is close to its full production rate. Convertibles are being introduced into the assembly process (though perhaps not yet for-sale customer cars), and the beginning of export cars have been starting down the same assembly line.

Thanks to GMauthority.com, we have more production line details, including this "teaser":

"Once the car is lowered onto the ground, it is inspected under blindingly bright lights for any dings or imperfections. It is then driven into a Dynamic Vehicle Testing booth, where over 800 performance tests are done on the car in under 2 minutes. The birth of this American icon takes about 3 days, but at the Bowling Green plant, you can watch it all happen in about an hour by scheduling a plant tour."

Apparently, from reading that article and another one about the assembly process, the C7 is not a unibody car but a body-on-frame car. I assumed it would be a unibody as that is commonplace today but not so for the Corvette. That's pretty cool.
