2013 SRT Viper to be Offered as Convertible Too

Back in the day of the Viper's first generations, Dodge used to debut the car as a convertible, and only then sell it as a coupe. In 2003, for example, it took four years for the Viper to receive a hard top version.

So in case you were wondering, SRT is indeed planning a convertible counterpart for its 2013 Viper coupe, but they're just not in a hurry to deliver it.

"The car was designed to be a convertible," said Chrysler SRT performance division president Ralph Gilles to Ward's Auto. "Under the skin is a convertible chassis. It's already there - the stiffness is there. It's extremely easy should that come, but we're not in any rush".

SRT's latest high-performance snake went on sale in November and the first batch of 800 cars were already sold. The lucky customers will receive their cars starting next month.

Launched in 1992, the Viper is currently being sold in its fifth generation.
