According to the GT3 book, the car is between 1430-1505kg depending on spec, and I guess you can probably add another 20-30kg of fuel depending on the size of the tank.

I thought that, per European Union specs, the "curb weight" listed in the manual and on the web site included all fluids and a full tank of fuel. I think that's pretty standard, although a few manufacturers still list the dry weight of their cars.

shizzle listed the number range based on option content in his post; I thought you picked up on that. My belief is that those numbers include fluids and fuel. The website shows a weight of 3153 lbs (1430 KG)......

no worries.....I'm guessing no one who's been lucky enough to get a car has taken the time to weigh it yet.

Porsche always indicates the weight with all fluids and full tanks, but with the lightest possible configuration, and no driver. That is the DIN figure, 1430kg in this case. The CE figure includes a 68kg driver+7kg of luggage, so 1505 kg.

So to obtain 1430kg, you have a order a GT3 with the small tank, PCCB, bucket seats but no club-sport configuration and no full leather inside. Maybe a front light configuration is also lighter than the standard?

Quite unusual configuration I think.

in the end...i guess "everything" does in fact matter...light feels right, up to a point on the street, at the cost of creature comforts

The Car and Driver test car, which was Euro-spec but not a Club Sport, and with PCCB, although the seat type is unclear and fuel tank size is unknown, had a curb weight of 3,197 lbs.

thats very respectable - what is the weight savings with the different brakes - perceptible ?

I agree that option spec will make a difference. My main reason for posting was to clarify on the point of whether fluids and fuel were included. As you point out, there's no reason to add extra weight for that.

According do the book the number does include fuel, but that's probably for the standard tank. If you get the 90L tank, it'll probably end up weighting a bit more filled up.

OK, I think I see what you meant by your original post. Sorry for the misunderstanding.....
