Dodge Viper Will Return in 2012 says CEO

Dodge Viper Will Retrun in 2012 Says Dodge Brand CEO | AutoGuide.com News



Quote:
Dodge brand CEO Ralf Gilles has confirmed that the Viper will return in 2012 as a 2013 model year car.

Dodge recently ceased production of its halo sports car, while continuing on with certain development aspects, eventually showing a concept car to dealers at a recent national dealer meeting.

Gilles commented that the new Viper, ďis not based on anything else,Ē and that, ďThere wonít be a part of the car thatís untouched.Ē That being said, the new Viper may do away with the previous modelís 6.4-liter V10 engine.

Gilles didnít rule out the use of an engine from itís new parent company Fiat, which owns Ferrari, but said the next Viper wonít just borrow a powerplant. He did say that the long hood with the cabin near the rear of the car would change.

Previous reports had suggested the car would just be a version of the Alfa Romeo 8C (itself based on the same chassis as the Ferrari California and Maserati GranTurismo), and while there will be some similarities, the proportions will be different.

The goal, says Gilles, will be to make the Dodge brandís new halo model more accessible. That being said, it will be easier to drive and more forgiving Ė including having, for the first time, stability control.

What is really fun is that there are 4-5 articles out there already and they all are different. Can one say editorial license. By the time this has all been rewritten the car will be being made in Italy and it will have a turbocharged Fiat motor.

The 8.4 met standards well into the future, so doubt there will be a change there...........the insinuations are they will likely use some Fiat/Ferrari engine developement ideas to improve. Likely will be in electronic management, etc.

Couple articles state the long nose will go away, yet others comment on how unique this is and few vehicles are designed like this -- meaning we want the Viper to stay unique.

Keep stirring the pot, it keeps alot of folks interested and just makes sure the car is built for the faithful, IMHO.

Thumbs down

Great reporting. BTW, the current engine is an 8.4 liter not a 6.4. However, with that being said, I'm certain your other information about the future Viper is totally accurate.
