Conner Avenue Assembly is a Chrysler automobile factory in Detroit, Michigan. The factory opened in 1966 and was originally operated by Champion Spark Plugs. In 1995, Chrysler purchased the facility for the Dodge Viper.[1]

Viper production moved from New Mack Assembly to Conner in October 1995 and Plymouth Prowler production started in May 1997. The Viper's V10 engine was originally built at Mound Road Engine but moved to Conner Avenue in May 2001. The facility had been out of use since 2010, when Viper production temporarily ceased, however the plant resumed operations in late 2012 to build the Viper again.[2]

On July 12, 2017, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles announced that due to the Viper's discontinuation, the plant would be shut down permanently on August 31.[3]
