Since it arrived on the market the first generation Dodge Viper much has changed for the automotive sector and the global society. Dodge Viper has been regarded for many years as one of the best American sports. However, the public seems that you has given it back under How have gone down their sales in the past years.
This situation was known in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and despite having tried to reverse the situation nothing has been done to save the model. In the middle of the last year, Dodge announced that the Viper would cease its manufacture and sale in 2017, and according to statements of Ralph Gilles already have the date exact. FCA designer announced at the Chicago Auto Show that the timing to unplug the respirator is August 31.
In these statements, took the opportunity to say that the production of the year 2017 is already completely sold. In addition, said customers who want one already can not configure it at the dealership by leaving clear already that there is no possibility to order more units. However, that more units can be configured does not imply you not to buy because there is still the possibility to get one.
The reason is that many dealers in the country have made collection of units to increase their stock and will surely make a great business with them. Yet, it seems Viper seems to have died for ever, because its market has been significantly reduced and to launch a new generation requires investment so high that FCA may not now assume.
The best of this situation (not for FCA) is that the Chevrolet Corvette is left alone in the great American sports market. Remains to be seen if General Motors model endure much longer in the market or if on the contrary end up disappearing as it has happened it to the FCA.
