Gen 2 or Gen 3 Viper GTS???

Welp.... I am looking for a new vehicle. (As most of you know ) I really don't like the styling of the "new" Gen 3 Viper as much as the 2nd Generation.... But, I am curious as to which one is more USABLE as a daily driver. ......... My current truck is a "daily driver", meaning I drive it when I leave the house. This could (really) be 3-4 times per week. And, I live in FL, so the weather (for the most part) is good.

I am looking for input from the many Viper car owners on our forum, as to which Generation they think is the most USABLE. (Walt, you took a LONG ride in your new 3rd Gen.... Dennis (01GTS/ACRineedalongername ), I think you use your 2nd Gen GTS every day.... )

Any suggestions are welcome. I am pretty sure (that) the 2nd Gen Viper will keep a better value over time. But, something in me has grown to like the 3rd Gen GTS over time. I don't like the styling as much, BUT at least I know the drivetrain pretty well.

Anyway...... Let me know what you think of your rides, fellas!

For the price of a Gen III Coupe you can get a nicely modded Gen II. You'll have better looks and easily outperform the Gen III.

'99 GTS gets my vote . . . Only 'cause it's a supports big mods better. Plus it looks pretty fkn good too!

But, IF my decision were based on looks/style alone (no plan to extremely modify) -Gen 3 Coupe would definately be in the running!

Remember, you are talking daily driver, not track car....

For about HALF the price of an 08 you can get forged internals, Roe S/C, SRT brakes, Lowered, Striped & Custom Interior and 635 rwhp.

Would be an awesome daily driver (if I needed it for that-which I don't).

Gen II GTS is the way to go. Those have the sexiest lines out of all of the Viper Generations and you get forged internals if you ever decide to do force induction.

personally, i like the original roadsters with the side pipes.... but for a daily driver, you need something like a gts that can be locked......
