Back in August Chrysler announced plans spinoff the Dodge Viper and sell it as its own brand. Now Chrysler President Jim Press confirms that there are three offers to turn the supercar into its own brand name.

Chrysler needs to submit a restructuring plan to the U.S. Treasury by February 17 and demonstrate its longer-term viability by March 31 in order to preserve a $4 billion federal loan. Getting a few bucks for a spectrality supercar will be a good step in showing that Chrysler is spending wisely.

So what’s in store for the Viper’s new future? We can’t be sure because the sale will likely happen beyond the March 31st deadline. But in a time when plenty of cool/fast/fun cars are in trouble, we are just happy that the Viper has a future.
