General Motors will spend $131 million to upgrade its plant in Bowling Green.

GM North America Preisdent Mark Reuss says the money will upgrade the plant so it can build the next generation of Corvettes.

“Last week we announced a number of significant improvements to the 2012 Corvette coming this fall. The third generation will continue for at least two more years, while behind the scenes work will begin to update the facility and ensure the Corvette will continue to be the true American sports car, built here for many years to come,” he says.

Reuss says the expanded capabilities at the facility will eventually create about 250 new jobs.
