Who Will Be Able to Tame The Next Viper? Will it Be The Government?


The Dodge Viper has always been known for its brutal nature and raw driving style.  The monster V10 powered sports car will never be mistaken for a subtle machine so it was a solemn day when Mopar waved farewell to the snake.  Now that the Chrysler Group has begun its renaissance, the Viper is rumored to make a return for 2012.

There is however (as always), a “but”.  A new federal law will mandate all 2013 model year cars to feature some sort of electronic-stability control.  With the rumored next-generation Viper to see production in 2012, it will more than likely be labeled as a 2013.  This means that for the first time since the start of the 1990s, a Dodge Viper will have stability control.  The real question is: will this turn the once raw and brutal pure driving machine into a computer on wheels?  We will have to wait and see.
