Rumormill: Chevy Corvette production to leave Bowling Green for... Lansing?

Even though it was just named the Official State Sports Car of Kentucky not even a month ago, a story from WLNS speculates that Chevrolet Corvette production could move from Bowling Green, Kentucky to Lansing, Michigan. The UAW president and economist who brought it up apparently didn't suggest that it would happen, they were really just throwing out possibilities to the WLNS reporter.
General Motors' Corvette rep David Caldwell, though, has doused any idea of this happening. When Autoblog asked him about the story, Caldwell told us that there had been a roundtable about what the Lansing Grand River plant might produce, and various cars were mentioned, including the Corvette. However, as Caldwell notes, "Corvettes are born in Bowling Green," and "nothing going on in the foreseeable future changes that long-time fact."
In other words, all of you in the Bluegrass State can relax now.
