    I work at Toledo Jeep Wrangler Assembly plant and from the time the body is put into the robots until it is driven off the assembly line is about 18 hours.The quicker the assembly process the better,the Wrangler is the fastest assembled vehicle that Chrysler has.We build a new Wrangler every 90 seconds and work 2 shifts 9 hours per day 6 days a week.

    Many of the largest assembly plants have an output of 300,000 cars per year or more, that amounts to over 1000 cars per day at roughly 20 hrs a day, (need time for maintenance) that is about 50 cars per hour.

    This does not take into account the fact that assembly plants assemble the final car from many sub assemblies and parts made elsewhere.

    it depends on the question, do you mean having all the parts and building it, or all the way from the beggining from a blue print?

    because lets say right now at this moment you drew a car, and we started to creat the body, this takes 6-8 months for a final model in blue print, then if you are to create a engine it takes about a year or two, or you can use a past model engine, (like grand ams) or (grand prix's) now after collecting all your info specs and everything, you need a manufacturer, they will make 5 vehicles for you, this is your test vehicles, it may be 5 each (example= pontiac se, gt, and such) now you test drive them and do all sort of tests, then you may do your crash test, this takes about another year, now you go back to your specs and fix any bad settings, parts models, and re-manufacture, and the process goes again, now your vehicle is ready for production, total time from scratch is approx= 5-7 years for a car to become true.

    but if you mean just in the factory, it takes a couple days, because now days laser sensor pin point machines built cars in a flash, little to no man work, this also is controversial in cutting jobs on people and people being unemployed for a long time!!!

    the machines rule!!

    Its a case of retooling a factory assembly line and getting hundreds of suppliers to do the same to make the old stuff i'd say no chance unless it was for 500000 + cars
