Aren't these the same people that laid off last year?
The article doesn't state *where* the jobs would be located. Will 85 jobs be in Bennville, or most of them in Michigan, you know the place where they build cars? Do you think they'd want a supply chain that costs $1,500 a truckload or $200 a truckload to deliver parts?
Elmer, somtin ain't not right wit dis fairytale....

The last sales year of the Viper they sold a whopping 370 vehicles
and these new ones no doubt are going to be priced over $100,000 with the SRT/GTS model coming in at around $130,000....
Chrysler says they are only going to produce 2000 of these in 2013
for worldwide sales and only 40% of the exterior will be carbon fiber,(Hood Roof and Rear Deck) and the remainder of the body will be made of aluminum making it only 100lbs lighter....

Somebody blowing smoke up somebodies ass with this article if they think its going to require more employees working 24/7....

By the way, Corvette sales are sluggish due to their $130,000 price tag and not because of new body styles....
