The writing has been on the wall for a while now, but FCA has officially confirmed the Dodge Viper will end production after the 2017 model-year. The last model-year will begin production on June 24th in Detroit with a host of limited-edition models.

Since the Viper began production in 1992, over 30,000 copies have been produced. However, as we all remember, there was a gap in production during these last 25 years. In late 2009 then parent company Chrysler Group announced Viper production would end after the 2010 model. New parent FCA then brought the third-generation car back in 2013.

As the case with the last Viper death, the 2017 model-year will be filled with commemorative limited-editions. The limited-edition snakes are outlined below:
