    Interesting way for a car car to go out. I imagine that they could somehow fix this issue if the car was selling well enough and making money.

    My local dealer still has new 2014 vipers on the lot at $136k & $156k... They are just so darn pricey. These are gts coupes (honestly don't know much about their models as I know I can't buy one lol)

    Great car, terrible pricing.
    Like Zebug, I know 2 dealers here in Houston with multiple left over 2015's and a couple of 2014's.
    Considering FCA's current tight finances, it makes sense to discontinue an overpriced car that doesn't sell well vs trying to redesign it.
    I can see it now though at the car dealership: "This is the last years the Viper is being produced, so we're tacking on a $20k ADM....."

    You can find one the on lots in Canada from 84K Canadian .... If I was an American and looking for a viper I would seriously consider a Canadian car due to the weak dollar ATM.
