Default How much does your car weigh?

After reading the CS ariticle in 000 I became courious what my car actually weighs .....

I put my 86.5 with a half full tank on the scale yesterday. 3320# I left some coins in the ash tray...I guess this is not a very Porsche thing to do. Also I have my house key on the key fob...another no no.

Less than yours as I replaced the roof and 3 glass windows with some canvas and a plastic one - lowered the center of gravity too

I'm guessing around 3,000 lbs since I gave some back with stereo speakers.

My 1987 S4 was really close to the factory spec at 1576 kg (3467 lbs), complete with all tanks full.
This is a Euro car, no option but the alarm.

My former 1989 CS was around 1520 kg (3344 lbs) in the same conditions.
It is heavy for a CS, with regular seats.

I will let you know when I will put my current 1988 CS on a scale.
I hope that it will close to the official 1480 kg (3256 lbs).

The Outlaw GT has not made it to a scale since the last phase of its diet. I kept a partial list of items that came out and had tallied slightly over 300 lbs deleted. I now estimate between 400 & 500 lbs in total weight loss.

Will document this after I get it on scales to corner balance it.
