We Officially Bid Farewell to the Dodge Viper in 6 Months

Dodge has confirmed production of the Viper sports car will end on August 31, 2017.

Speaking at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show, FCA design chief Ralph Gilles shared the news while also confirming the sports car is sold out for its final model year. Last year, after announcing that the Viper would be discontinued, Dodge limited the first wave of orders to 206 units before opening the order books one more time before the end of the year. The first set of orders were sold out in less than a week.

To celebrate the final year of production, the American automaker released a set of five special edition cars, including the 1:28 Edition ACR, GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR, VooDoo II Edition, Snakeskin Edition GTC and Dodge Dealer Edition ACR.

Rumor has it that Dodge could be building a successor to the Viper, but we shouldn’t expect to see or hear any news of it for quite some time.
