Next Gen Viper begins production next year, but not as a Dodge?

Yeah, another car nerd post. This one is aimed at the Mopar guys, though. The Viper ended production mid-2010 and has since closed the production plant in Detroit. I guess recently, it was confirmed that the plant will re-open and try to hire back the 150 employees they had to let go to begin production sometime next year. Apparently, they're already being trained on the manufacturing of it, so it is definitely on its way (not a surprise, since the next gen was announced late last year anyway).

But there was a press release a couple days ago that described the car as no longer being branded as a Dodge. Instead, it will be branded as an SRT, which, to me, suggests that SRT will now become its own brand as a performance division of Chrysler Group (just like how RAM broke from Dodge in 2010 to become Chrysler's truck brand), as the SRT versions of a lot of Chrysler's lineup are still hot items (Charger, Challenger, Crossfire, Grand Cherokee, etc). This leads me to believe that SRT's main focus will be the Viper, however, they might still do performance versions of cars from other Chrysler brands. Maybe we'll even see a limited run of SRT RAMs (the original RAM SRT-10 was only in production from 2004-2006). After all, there was a 300 SRT8 that was announced earlier this year and there have been a number of other Chrysler SRT branded vehicles, so this is a likely possibility.
