<p>The Dodge Viper was too good for this world, and so its day of reckoning has arrived. A batch of limited-edition 2017 models will be released as a form of respect to the V-10 supercoupe before production ends—probably for good, this time—but for the purposes of this story, it's dead enough. Already killed once, at the end of the 2010 model year, the Viper was reborn in 2013. No longer a Dodge, the brash coupe bore the SRT nameplate; however, like a divorcée returning to her maiden name, the Viper fell back under the Dodge brand in 2015.
