Ø Chrysler vows new Dodge Viper supercar due next year, USA Today, April 15

o If you need any evidence about how serious Chrysler is about creating a next generation of the Dodge Viper, expect to see the new one next year, USA Today said. The automaker just released a photo of a Viper slaloming down an icy slope as engineers work to give the super-performance car electronic stability control for the first time, the paper said. Chrysler’s caption said, “SRT engineers expanded the development scope for the next generation Dodge Viper to include stability control tuning for the first time. The development comes just in time for the next ‘Super Car Olympics,’ sure to take place late in 2012 when the all-new performance icon returns,” the paper said
