    He says he hates anything stock and modifies everything. Maybe he will finally force Dodge to unlock the PCM on Gen4-5.

    Guys...he has a Challenger behind him. He's pushing the Hellcat. I have to admit though, I'd love to see HIS version of the Viper.

    He has the REAL Challenger in the background which is quite a statement on its own. I'd be surprised if Viper continues under this guy, well maybe as a rear seat delete option on the Cuda, LOL. I am surprised with his musical tastes, was expecting Lynyrd Skynyrd redneck special but I see some of my own stuff instead. Hmmm... I must be a redneck in denial, LMAO...

    No Dodge CEO will want to have his legacy go down as the man who personally killed off the Viper. They may discontinue the Viper, but they will blame some bean counter in Italy as the fall guy.

    Well, I am sure he will not be doing it directly and explicitly. He actually does not have to anything, Ralph already did this part when he halted the production until wink wink, June. I seriously doubt that this guy will be reactivating the production of a car that does not sell, then he would be setting him up as the new fall guy. I am sure he is smarter than that or at least should be.

    Sales talk. BS walks. The Viper faithful need to step up to the plate and put their money where there key strokes are and buy the Gen V at the great prices now available. If the dealers feel the money and Dodge offers a lower priced variant of the Gen V with less content for 2015, maybe, just maybe, enough dealers will order 2015s when the 2015 order book opens ( date not known yet) to allow Dodge to continue the Viper program.

    I would love to buy a Gen 5 at the discounted prices, unfortunately, timing is wrong. I bought a house a couple months ago, and it would be my high-mileage 2003 (not worth much) and my 07 Superbee (which I want to keep) plus boatloads of cash, which I just don't have at the moment (I don't finance toys). Even if I got, $60,000 for the Viper and Bee combined (a real stretch) we're still talking 40Gs.

    A dealer local to me has a '13 Blue LE on the floor for a year now. Even in his TV commercials, where he advertises "a penny over invoice" on everything, he even mentions "yes, even this Viper, one penny over invoice"! A good deal, that someone should take advantage of.

    I want to support the Viper so it keeps going, and I would if I could.

    I wasn't aware, no. Thank you, I'll check it out, but still probably a no-go for me at this time. Appreciate it.
