2017 Dodge Viper Ordering To Reopen Soon

Dodge has confirmed that ordering for the 2017 Viper will reopen before the end of the year.

The company paused ordering for the final production year of the famed American supercar on October 7 to assess just how many cars it could produce for the 2017 model year.

According to Dodge boss Tim Kuniskis, it was important for the brand to determine how many orders its suppliers could fulfil, given the high demand for the run-out model.

Speaking with The Detroit News, Kuniskis said “We actually had to shut down the ordering because we outran our headlights. We didn’t know if we were going to have enough parts to build all the cars that people ordered.

“The demand for ACR is off the charts — way more than we ever expected. We are close to opening it back up now that we know how many more we can build. They will sell out quickly,” he said.

Soon after Dodge announced that 2017 would be the final year for the Viper, North Carolina dealership, Gerry Wood Dodge, made headlines after revealing that it had ordered 135 Vipers and would even be creating its own special edition models courtesy of the automaker’s customization program.
