I joined this forum at the end of last year but have not posted anything. I mainly joined because I was thinking about buying one and was not sure of the differences between the model years and didn't know anyone who has ever owned one. My car experience has always been muscle cars. Most of my cars have been Mopars. Hemi & 6 pack cars. I Have always thought that Vipers were one of the most beautiful cars ever made. I retired at the end of last year and went to Florida for a month. While in Florida I found website (TURO) that had a Viper that I could rent! I figured to rent one before I decided to invest in one. It was a 2013 coupe that was no where near stock. What a BEAST! The owner claimed it had 600 RWHP. Needless to say I was hooked! Next week my wife & I are going on a road trip to look at a 2008 coupe. If everything is what I think it is we will be driving it home to Michigan. Approx. 600 miles. Should be a fun road trip.
