Viper production put on halt because of slow sales


Auto News reports that 91 hourly workers at Chrysler’s Conner Avenue Assembly in Detroit will be laid off because the company has suspended production of its SRT Viper.

Only 91 units have been sold through January and February. According to the site, Vipers haven’t sold well in winter months because the specialized tires don’t grip well in cold weather.

Production will be down at least two months, beginning the week of April 14.
