    Wow. Even though I couldn't give a spoon full of amphibian $hit wether they build one or not, I would still want them produced for those that enjoy that sort of thing.

    The Medusa program at viper exchange is where they make vipers into convertibles. Rock on if it floats your boat.

    The Medusa Vipers look great, however the cost is just crazy. I too would like to see a factory convertable.

    I voted , though I personally am not interested in buying one , but for obvious reasons I am very interested in Dodge building this car. The reason may seem obvious, since I sell Vipers, but the reality is that over the past few years, since the Gen V debuted , I have gotten even more requests for a convertible than the ACR. Now, I have an ACR, the new ACR is doing super well, but I have to be objective and if more folks call wanting a Convertible than the highly desirable ACR, it is something one needs to express. Not my personal preference, but that is immaterial, since I am in a position to listen to consumer demands, etc. I do know of one other large Dealer who echoes my sentiment here, as he also has gotten a lot of inquiries on a convertible. I figure it is my duty to be a mouthpiece for the legion of Viper Owners who have purchased a car from us, had one modified by us, etc. and since we get questions on the topless terror all the time, this is another good place to list what so many of you are telling us. Would encourage those with interest , for whatever reason, to join this poll.

    Lots of people like the Medusa, but will not pay the higher price it commands.

    Do not think it would cost Dodge much more to make the coupe into a vert. Pretty straight forward using components from the Gen IV.

    Some potential customers are put off by the magazines that always say the Vipers are brutes and difficult to drive. Perhaps there is a market for a smooth riding, not track focused Vert. Maybe a Grand Touring suspension setting.

    Some may say sacrelege, but it would sell. Survival is hard.

    How about a sub poll to this for which want power tops vs the manual top. Would the power tops bring in more buyers? I would prefer the manual top like the previous generation.

    Deleted - enough with sidetracking OP's intent.
