    77 Vipers

    Are the vehicles organized and displayed in some way, by gen, year etc (1992 to 2014 for example)? Might be informative to see such a collection if the 77 represent all the Gens and specialty ones as well. Interesting to see how an automobile evolves mechanically and by design.

    77 Vipers

    Might have $3-4 millions worth of Dodge vipers. I would rather have a much smaller variety of exotic cars, Ferraris, Mclaren, Lamborghini, Pagani etc. for the same money.

    How rare is my car?

    It's really rare in Greensburg, LA.....j/k. Doesn't matter what year, what gen, what's a Viper and only about 30,000 have ever been made. Maybe not rare but certainly each one is very special

    My viper was keyed very bad "graphic pictures "

    You would hope so, given the extent of the damage (>$1000) and being willful/malicious versus negligent. This should be a felony crime. Check your state's criminal code.

    Real viper prices

    I have bought and enjoyed 3 vipers (2002, 2006, 2013). The 2002 was modded which I regreted. I knew very little about vipers at that time. I would not buy someone else's mods. Buy stock. The gen 3 and 5 were stock and remained so. Only buy used, if you can verify the history, how the car was...

    Newbie intro

    Two recent hernia repairs = no more sports cars of any kind and automatic transmission only. Each was a blast to drive in its own way. Now I am driving a boat or feels like a boat.

    Show us your garage!

    Downsized (just me and girlfriend) and built a much smaller house and 2 hernia repairs. End result... no more sports car of any kind and automatic transmission only.

    Newbie intro

    Viperless for 2 months now. Had an 02, then an 06, and the 13 for a year. Welcome anyway from another in South Louisiana (about 100 miles closer to the Gulf)

    Downshift to brake?

    Of course I am a poser driver, driving 3 vipers in a row at the speed limit, and never a street race. Had the gen 5 for a year and cannot recall exceeding 4500 rpms. What the hell was someone like me doing in such a driver's car.....scandalous I tell you. Should not be allowed. Having elevated...

    Downshift to brake?

    Have driven mostly manual transmissions for 40 years. From tearing up the streets of London in Triumphs to 3 vipers (Gen 5 last one). I have always downshifted to assist in braking which I suppose is different to braking. If I see a red light well ahead and have plenty of time, I very gently...

    General question about Gen V features

    I have a different viewpoint from Bruce, Nineball, and others that actually have the knowledge and skills to properly drive the Gen V. I have no such skills and still managed to thoroughly enjoy 3 vipers (02, 06, 13). The Gen V in particular is splendid fun even in the hands of an unskilled...

    no more viper (no more sports car for me)

    Thank you all for such kind words and I remain just as interested in the past, present, and future of the viper, an automobile that has thoroughly seduced me over its generations. Bob, although I earned a graduate pathology degree through the Pathology Dept of a medical school, I am not an MD...

    no more viper (no more sports car for me)

    After owning a Gen 2,3, and 5 for one year, and recently two hernia repairs, I traded the gen 5 because I could not get in and out of it without aching and even operating the clutch was becoming painful. So no more sports car for me at all. Still have the SUV, but replaced the viper with an...

    The slowest viper in the world

    Agree. I'm 63, my first fastish car was back in 1972, a V12 Jaguar E-type. Had sports cars on and off ever since. Lost the need for speed but still need the fast car look and feel. I also don't have the reflexes and skills anymore. Know a few much younger than I, that have wrecked their...

    The slowest viper in the world

    It's my third viper and I seem to be going slower and slower with each incremental hp increase. I do enjoy it. It's almost a daily for me (commute is very very short). Going 100 miles each way on business tomorrow...iikely take the viper. Don't care about mileage,,,, having too much fun being...

    The slowest viper in the world

    Lots of threads about fastest this and fastest that. Thought I would post showing proof that I am the slowest viper driver on the planet. I am going 55 in a 55.

    gen V RPM at 70 MPH?

    I am not your typical viper owner. I drive the speed limit and toodle around. I hardly ever pass anybody but get passed all the time. I have put almost 7000 miles on the car since purchase in January, so I use it a lot. My commute to work is very short and use it most days unless storming. My...

    The first TT Gen V race you've ever seen...

    Thanks for sharing.....thrilling to see what can be done. Any plans for a time slip? Would you have to upgrade the rearend to support launches with that much torque?

    About to pull the trigger on a leftover 2013 GTS... thoughts? Input

    I have a 2013 base with track pack (which I will never use). Bought it January. Traded a 2006 gen 3 coupe for it. My test drive was the 100 mile drive home after purchase. It's a whole lot of car for high 80s and even 90s. I have average driving skills at best. It's easier to control than the...

    What are buyer's paying for their new Viper GTS?

    It's a sports car not an investment. It's an irrational, irresponsible purchase to begin with. Who spends $70-80-90-100-200-300K on just two seats, enough trunk space for a toothbrush, unuseable horsepower (for most street driving), questionable gas mileage and visibility etc etc........lots of...

    What are buyer's paying for their new Viper GTS?

    The value of the car goes beyond numbers, retail versus wholesale, math etc. I paid $22k below sticker in January for 2013 base track pack. A day later it was worth less and now.... well it just doesn't matter because I am keeping it for a while. I drive it almost every day to work (very short...

    Re: Track Attack #11, New tires, best lap time, max g’s, 991 Turbo S…and the big ques I don't drive fast and obviously do not race my G5 which makes me appreciate even more guys like you that do. Besides enjoying the videos that you share, you are using the car for its designed use and I...

    first car wash, etc

    First....congrats on TA purchase My Gen5 base gets dirty and rained on all the time. I drive it to work most days (not very far) unless heavy storms are forecast. I take it about once a month to a car wash and hand spray. Don't dry it, just drive it away. Never have used a towel for the hood...
