Even if it’s headed down the path to cancellation, the Dodge Viper still can’t find a way to escape the news. Fiat Chrysler’s decision to ax the Viper was thought to have been because of its poor sales. While that’s a justifiable reason for the sports car to go bye-bye, a more telling reason behind the Viper’s demise has come to light. Anonymous sources tell MotorTrend that it’s Dodge’s inability to fit side curtain airbags into the Viper. It’s for this reason that FCA, Dodge’s parent company, has chosen to end Viper production in 2017.
