Dodge has announced production of the 2014 SRT Viper has been halted once again amid decreasing sales.
It was only a couple of days ago when we found out production of the 2014 SRT Viper was resumed on June 23 after being stopped on April 14. Now, Dodge says the assembly line at Conner Avenue has been stopped once again yesterday and it will restart on July 21. In the first production pause, 91 workers were laid off but now the number has been reduced to 82.
Once the assembly line will restart, the production rate will be the same as before even though there are some risks of creating another inventory surplus. Starting with 2015 model year, the Viper will be sold once again with the Dodge nameplate probably as a method to boost sales since customers would react better to the famous designation.
