The Viper is dead! Long live the Viper!

No sooner has FCA auctioned off the last of its “old” Vipers that rumours have emerged stating that the next generation Dodge Viper is not that far off.

This is not a surprise, really, as performance cars are extremely popular these days. The Chevy Corvette is on fire, there’s the mad-mad Ford GT, BMW has “M’d” everything, Audi R8, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, Pagani and so on and so forth. Everybody’s in the big-power game. FCA’s SRT is Big-Power and they weren’t going to be without a true halo supercar for very long.

The rumours are not saying much other than the next Snake will probably not have a V10 engine, more likely an all-new V8 with and without forced induction. One thing is certain and that is it will be fast and look the part too.

It sounds as though it will land as a 2021 model year and could break cover as early as next year’s North American International Auto Show in Detroit. January 2019 will mark the original Viper Concept’s 30th anniversary.
