Very recently, roadsters enjoyed a short-lived popularity boost. With the Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Sky coming in to take on the Mazda Miata, Dodge decided it had to have something to show off too. The Demon was that car.
The Demon looks like Dodge’s take on a Honda S2000, with conservative lines, and a basic, but working interior. The car was also perfect for enthusiasts thanks to its rear-wheel drive design and six-speed manual. Overall the Demon was slightly more powerful than a Miata with its 2.4L Inline-four engine and 172-hp. It was going to be pretty light weight too, coming in at around 2,600 lbs. Looking remarkably street-worthy, that’s a strong indication of just how close Dodge must have come to building it.
Quietly shelved, perhaps the newly-minted SRT brand could bring it back? Because the world needs a baby Viper.
