The Dodge Demon was a concept made by DaimlerChrysler, designed to slot in under the Viper as a more affordable sports car from Dodge. The Demon was first shown at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, and is being considered for production[1]. It was conceived to compete with cars like the Pontiac Solstice, Saturn Sky, and Mazda Miata. Unlike many other concept cars, the materials and construction design of the Demon were such that production would be feasible.
