DETROIT--Chrysler Group will continue making and selling Dodge Vipers after all.

The company on Friday removed the for-sale sign from its Viper business and will continue making the sports car through 2010 "and beyond," a Chrysler official said.

The move to keep the Viper marks a sharp departure for Chrysler under a Fiat-led management team.

The plan failed, and Chrysler filed for Chapter 11 on April 30 and emerged June 10.
