It seems that when the production for the Dodge Viper is to be halted next year, the 2017 Dodge Challenger Cobra may take over Viper’s spot at the Conner Avenue plant in Detroit, Michigan.
Sure, the Dodge Challenger Cobra may not be the fanciest name you’ve ever seen, but it sure is going to help us be reminded of the Viper (though it has been halted several times prior to this, so pretty sure people will remember it).
At the moment, the Dodge Viper SRT churns out 645 horsepower and this is all thanks to the V10 8.4-litre engine powering it, which takes the vehicle from standstill to 100 in approximately 12 seconds, while the top speed is 206mph. The Challenger, on the other hand, offers a V6 3.6-litre engine. We’re expecting for the Challenger Cobra to offer much more power if does come out.
As for now, since 2017 is still a little out of reach, we’ll just have to wait and see if the Cobra is going to be able to take over from the Viper.
