  • Fiat Chrysler to close Dodge Viper plant in August

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU) will take the expected step of permanently closing a Detroit plant that builds the Dodge Viper next month.

Fiat Chrysler (FCA) chose to end production of the Viper supercars with the 2017 model-year after sales didn't meet expectations of 1,500 per year, USA Today reported.

The automaker will officially close its Conner Assembly Plant on August 31, according to Automotive News.

Right now, 87 employees are at the plant, which was built in 1966 and was purchased by Chrysler in 1995. GM also has a plant that spans both Detroit and Hamtramck, and also remains headquartered in Detroit.

The Viper has left an outsize imprint on the automotive industry for the past 25 years.

The company is "just following the law" by filing documentation with the government, Tinson said. It was idled in July 2010 after the Viper was temporarily discontinued following Chrysler's brush with death during its 2009 bankruptcy. The plant was then renovated and reopened in 2012. The 392,000 square-foot facility on Detroit's east side is where the Dodge Viper sports auto, along with V-10 engines, have been produced since the 90s.
