    We all know that the Viper is coming to the end of its production life. I am confused as to when that will happen. Will dodge produce a 2017 model year car and than that will end the production or is 2016 the end of production for the Viper?

    Thanks.

    I think the more accurate question is whether the 2017 or 2018 model will be the last one. The 2017 model will be out by next next summer if the usual schedule is followed. So a 2018 model in 2017 is certainly possible.

    Did we ever hear whether the contract was indeed signed to close the plant?

    Also, is everyone assuming that a plant shutdown would also discontinue the production of the viper vs transferring build to another facility?

    I'll quote MoparMap on the contract

    Well that is relieving to read! I am currently working my way up to a new Gen V and was afriad I might have to speed up the pace a bit for this to happen.

    So after renewing the contracts, The facelifted /refreshed Viper should appear as a 2017 model or 2018 ?
