I think there's some bragging rights if they can get the dry weight under 3k, even if it's 2998.
I expect cars 150lbs lighter than the current model. So...
coupe at about 3050 ~ (6.5 lbs/hp)
light weight NA track beast at about 3000 ~ (5.75 lbs/hp)
FI king of the hill at about 3100-3200 ~ (4.75 to 5.0 lbs/hp)
That's like saying I'm a millionaire, plus or minus a million.
You're absolutely right. It's an internal argument I have with myself. How much weight can they shave off the standard version to counter the added weight from the FI, wider wheels/tires, bigger brakes, etc...
I'll refine my 'top dog' to the middle and say 3150 @ with 660hp.
Coupe I still say will come in a hair under 3k if they can make it happen without blowing the price target.
