Since the past 18 months, Ralph Gilles the numero uno of the Dodge unit, has been giving mixed reviews on what he intended to do with the epic Viper brand. In a recent interview thou, he said that he has decided to end the production of the current Viper in July 2010. The company stated it intended to preserve the value of existing Vipers by not simply continuing the current generation indefinitely. It seems that 500 final cars will be built which they claim will be the most special Vipers ever. But, what is so special about it, is still undisclosed.
Gilles also revealed that an all new sports car is being developed with a launch targeted sometime in 2012. It is expected to be devoloped with some help from Chrysler’s new Italian brothers Fiat. There is a also very likely possibility that Ferrari could be also helping with the development of this mysterious model. Muscle car fans across the globe will certainly be keeping their fingers crossed for Chrysler to retain the Viper’s raw nature in the new generation.
