DETROIT (WKZO) -- Chrysler officials say the Detroit plant where the Viper sports car is assembled will be shut down for more than two months because of weak sales. Tuesday, the automaker announced production will be halted at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant the week of April 14th and not resume until the week of June 23rd. The base price of the Viper is just over 99-thousand dollars and less than 600 were sold in 2013, and so far this year, only 91 of the vehicles have been sold.
