Hopefully not. My Vert is 10 years and 63,000 into it. It's in perfect shape but, it's getting old. I need some motivation to spend my car fund. I hope the Vert is the answer. ( I won't take the first model year $ hit however)

If the Vert sucks. I think it's time for a country club membership instead. (and keep the current Viper)

I have seen a lot of people say the price is the problem; however, I don't really understand that.

If you are comparing the Viper to a regular C7 Vette there is no real comparison since the C7 bette doesn't come close to matching the Viper.

If you are talking about the new Z06 or even a possible new ZR1 I wouldn't agree price should be an issue. I gave more for my 2009 ZR1 than I had to pay for my 2014 TA.

I paid MSRP, and DGAF. I still like the car and have put 8K miles on it so far. Losing $15K in one year is still not as bad as AMG Benz owners lose every single year. People paying $100K+ for a brand new toy likely aren't as affected by this loss, as some of you might think. Just different perspectives, that is all. I consider this a good problem to have.

According to Ralph Gilles:

-TA lasts on the lot for 30 days on average!
-Dealers who optioned the Viper like Ram trucks are the problem for slow sales
-60% of Gen V customers never owned a Viper before
-Over 700 Gen Vs sold as of now
-Hemi wont fit in Viper. No other V8s either due to width of engine. V10 is the only option.
-1/3 of the 700~ cars were sold by 3 dealers.
-Dealers who price gouged learned their lesson
-No DCT is coming. Doesn't fit, doesn't work well for city driving due to torque from Viper V10 engine. Long story short, Viper is intended to have a visceral experience. If you want an auto, look elsewhere.

This.... It was always a step above the vet for the same money... The exclusivity of a Ferrari or Lamborghini for 1/4 the cost....

And my biggest complaint.. It's not a barebones monster that you can tinker with over the weekend anymore.
