    Does anyone know exactly what days and hours the plant is open and manufacturing vehicles (not open for tours)?

    The plant operates 24/7 in some capacity. I've been there at 2AM on a Sunday and the parking lot was full of cars with lots of activity going on inside (from the bit I could see through the windows).

    Another thing is that different areas of the production lines have different shifts. You would assume (I did), that they are running 2 x 8hr shifts per day. But in actuality, they are doing a mix of 8/10/12hr shifts depending on areas.

    I should probably add, not to go on a Thursday at 3pm. Literally every shift was down.

    The more specific question is what is schedule of operation of the final assembly line.
