    I believe they are using Alfa Romeo for their upmarket sports cars in the future. I don't think there will be a direct Viper replacement.

    why do they need one?

    Ford occasionally has the Ford GT....if that even counts

    Chevy has the Vette (which is actually affordable to some of the masses)

    I dont see the need.....self driving cars are the future....not v10 sports cars

    Dodge SRT Tomahawk concept (granted its a game concept but the ideas and the tech are the important parts)

    SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo Revealed

    I think Viper gets a new chassis that can meet the new safety requirements (side curtain air bags) and a goes hybrid and/or turbo V6.

    A Viper without a V10 isn't a Viper. If they removed 2 doors from a Dart, added a turbo v6 and called it a Viper would it still be one? NO

    whatever they do with it it needs to match Vette pricing w/ their base model....w/ having an $80k base model after rebates its not going to be successful to the masses

    The beauty of the SRT Tomahawk is that it retains the Viper's V10 engine :). Granted 2590HP and a 400 mph top speed might be a little far, but we are talking a vision for year 2035

    That's one of the best things of owning a viper .Its much more exclusive than a vette. They are everywhere . That's why most all vette owners give viper guys the thumbs up. God made vipers so vette guys would nave heros .

    Did anyone see the Motor Trend blurb about a supercharged Viper coming, they claimed 900hp, also with an auto option? I think they said its going to be built pretty much just for the track but will be street legal?
