Unhappy RIP Viper

Not many Vipers are sold - 630 last year - despite an enthusiastic following. And of course FCA's own 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger and Charger SRT Hellcats and new 840-horsepower Challenger SRT Demon can't help matters. But the last straw is the fact the Viper can't comply with new safety requirements going into effect.

"What a difference a week makes..."

Sergio Marchionne Says That Dodge Viper Revival Isn't Going To Happen
Bradley Brownell Today 11:30am

"Automobile Magazine’s Todd Lassa reported the disappointing news that a new Viper is “not in the plan”. Marchionne added that the halo Dodge wasn’t a money maker, and wouldn’t work with the upcoming package of FCA sports car engines. Sergio didn’t completely give up on the idea, reportedly commenting that he would be happy if FCA could find a way to get it done."
