I can’t say I’ll miss the Viper.
About 15 years ago a friend of mine had a 1994 version that we enjoyed flinging along twisty back roads. The car was fun, and we got lots of attention (and third-degree calf burns from the ill-placed exhaust). The Viper was perfect for young adults in the late 1990s, but it doesn’t have a place now.
FCA has realized that fact, too, and come 2017, the venerable Viper will end production. There is no replacement car in the works.
