I'd buy one if I had the $$
High gas prices, high price tag (not for what you get) ... needs something more than just a convertible. Dodge really needs to bring back a coupe version of the Viper
id guess its the lack of options? do they still have the trim levels they used to like ACR? do they have traction contol yet?
It's a Dodge
they really needed to release a coupe too. Also they should have kept the 2nd gen platform IMO the new one is hot but the last gen was just perfect IMO.
i think it's the gas prices and price tag too
For some reason I don't think people who buy the car are all that worried about gas prices.....
Right now ALL car sales are down.
its just too slow
do they not offer the coupe anymore?
if so, that is the problem...
If I actually had the money...
I wouldn't buy it because I'd want a coupe.
Because it looks pussyfied now. The GTS looked fucking mean, even the RT/10 looks mean sans roof, but this new vert model looks like an XLR or 500sl competitor, not testosterone on wheels the way the previous model looked.
I would rather have a GTS than the new one.
that is disturbingly interesting
at the people who think gas prices are why people don't buy 80K dollar toys
I think the new one looks better.
Considering that you can get a all-new Mustang GT with 300 HP for $25,000 (base), in coupe form, which is more safe. And has the historical heritage that the Viper will never touch, but has none of the exclusivity of the Dodge Viper.
I mean, right now $80,000 cars that seat two people aren't exactly selling too well ... unfortunately. I love the redesign of the Viper; even if it doesn't look as "mean and defiant" as the original.
C6 > Viper
Other than the fact 1 is a pony car and 1 is a sports car, or that 1 is a chick car and the other is not.
If you have $80k+ to buy a "toy", chances are you don't give a shit about gas prices
I'd buy one if I had the cash...I'd much rather have a hardtop though
People are getting the new Vette as a cheaper alternative and the Ford GT as a more exotic alternative
What kind of gas mileage does that Ford get?
Then come up with a reason why it's not selling?
Damn -- we're just coming up with ideas that's all.
Who knows. I'm sure people making $500,000 a year could easily afford a 80,000 car .... and the gas that goes along with it. I don't really know why they're not selling.
I like the new ones but they really needed to release a hardtop, and I still prefer the last body style, it was more original and mean.
I'd pimp one... providing I had 85 grand to piss away on a car that I wouldn't use to haul or commute in. I'm guessing that not too many people fit into that niche. Driving an 85k viper on the street every day isn't too common. My neighbor has one tho. And like 6 BMWs
