It’s official. FCA has announced that the Viper will end production after the 2017 model year, closing the door on a 25 year run. It’s been a great quarter century but all good things must come to an end. To celebrate, Dodge will be producing five special edition 2017 Vipers that will actually be available later this month. Find more info on these fab five at Auto Guide. All done? Not necessarily. With Chrysler’s penchant for reusing model names, you may not have to wait 30 years to buy a Viper again. Sergio Marchionne has stated that the Viper may return, albeit, based on a shared platform and not powered by a V10. Read more on a possible Viper 2.0 here. Is that a mistake?
