The launch of the 2013 SRT Viper marked the first time the car has been introduced as a coupe rather than a roadster, but that didn't matter to buyers. According to Wards Auto, the initial run of 800 Vipers has already sold out with deliveries starting next month, and, even more impressively, SRT president Ralph Gilles reportedly said that more than 80 percent of those sales consisted of the sportier, more expensive Viper GTS model.

Gilles indicated that a convertible version of the new Viper could be available within a few years, and it won't be hard to produce since the current car was designed with a topless model in mind. Two of the likely reasons behind the SRT Viper reversing the trend of launching as a convertible was that the outgoing Viper was selling 60 percent coupes and 40 percent roadsters when production ended in 2010. Further, the SRT team wanted to get back into American Le Mans Series racing, which necessitated a hardtop.

      I wasn't loving the 'new' Viper when it was first released. However after seeing the new Vette the Viper looks so much better.

      Only 800... no wonder they sold out so quickly.

        Its very low volume to keep it rare and profitable

      If it wasn't for the headlights, I wouldn't be able to tell the new on from the old one.

      The new viper is garbage if the 2 on display at the NAIAS were a sign of the fit a finish of the car. Im talking about the yellow car.

        I know this is a tired excuse, but you do realize the cars presented at NAIAS were pre-production examples. Now! I agree SRT should have tightened up the gap tolerances for the shows. However, perhaps production spec body panels were not available in time for the shows. NAIAS was a couple weeks ago which means the mules were made weeks prior to the show. I have not heard many complaints about panel gaps from recent shows.

      Come on Autoblog. The GTS is not "sportier". It is exactly the opposite. The GTS is the more luxurious model, which means it has more sound deadening, and thus more weight. You should know this Autoblog, since you reported on it. The track package, which is the actual "sporty" option, is available on both the GTS and non-GTS models.

        While yes, the GTS offers more luxury...it also offers 2 mode dampers and 4 mode stability control. All of this gives you more ways to tune a car for a specific track, therefore being sportier.

      According to Chrysler's 5 year plan, the Viper should get a "refresh" in 2015. Very likely the convertible variant, though I'd love to see it sooner, I'm wanting a new ACR!

      I wonder what percentage of ordered Vipers are NOT purchased....LynxFX also makes an excellent point. Dealers use their allocations and then pump up the price with additional dealer profit or market adjustment. Gotta love the scumbags.

        I think that it's great how people love to use derogatory terms to describe dealers when there is a markup on a limited availability model. Does that mean the dealer gets to call you, the consumer a scumbag when you want to by all of the rest of the models at ridiculous discounts? Or, are you one of the many severely uneducated that believe that, no matter what the selling price, the dealer is making profit hand over fist? I'm guessing the latter...
