Dodge Viper: V8 convertible for 2021?



https://www.caranddriver.com/feature...gend-is-reborn

for its 30th anni

was the late 80s/early 90s the last golden age of sports cars? the final Enzo-era Ferrari, the NSX, the Miata and the Viper were all fresh designs at the time

That concept pic is

Viper is one of those cars that always hold a special place in my heart.

An old neighbor I had when I was doing undergrad in Vic had one and once he was kind enough to let me take it out for a spin.

It was rough as hell and the epitome of a PURE muscle car; raw, mad and unforgiven.

They should go back to that route and make a hybrid electrical that focuses on one thing and one thing ONLY: straight line acceleration/quarter miles.

Didn't they cancel the viper because of bad sales? Why are they trying build it again?

i feel like dodge needs to focus on making cars people want to buy instead of shitty darts/journeys/200s/durangos. at least in the 80s they were making money off k cars and mini vans they could afford a halo car

Can you really call a mid-engined corvette a corvette?

^there's been mid engine corvette concepts almost as long as there's been corvettes. It's almost a shame to have not made a mid engine corvette after 60 years or talking about it
