If you’ve got a need to own a brand new, dealer-purchased Dodge Viper, you’d better get your financing in order quickly. Unconfirmed rumors seem to indicate that the last production run of the 10 cylinder, 600 horsepower Corvette fighter will start by the end of the month. This makes sense, since dealers have already begun accepting orders for the “Final Edition” models.
If the rumored replacement for the Viper is still in the cards, we won’t see it until the 2012 or 2013 model year. Given Dodge’s current financial situation and new ownership, I suspect they’ll have to move a whole lot of Fiats to justify the expense of a new high performance image car. Speaking for gear heads everywhere, I hope it happens.
