Sounds like it is affecting all automakers. Hoping it doesn't impact GT500 production!


General Motors extends plant shutdowns due to chip shortage (consumeraffairs.com)


"The chip shortage has been blamed on the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it has had a major impact on automakers. Last month, GM and Ford announced that they will produce fewer cars and trucks due to the shortage."

"Experts said the shortage was caused by the nation’s rapid economic recovery during the pandemic. At the start of the pandemic, semiconductor makers scaled back production in anticipation of a steep drop in demand.

Demand did decline at first, but the auto industry ended up recovering quickly when consumers adapted to online car shopping and purchases. When auto plants reopened, they quickly ran out of the semiconductor chips. "

Between the extended 2020 production until the end of the year and the chip shortage now, I suspect there will be far fewer 2021s compared to 2020s on the streets.

Just a personal observation.....

The Ford and Chevy dealers by me are literally almost out of cars.

The Honda, Toyota, Mercedes, and Porsche dealership lots are PACKED with inventory.

So why are the American car lots empty and the foreign car lots full?
