    I believe its closer to 200 lbs. difference between the coupe vs. the convertible . The difference between the convertible vs. the t-top car is much much closer to being the same curb weight .

    Found this site, look at the bottom, it gives the curb weights. Looks like it's more like a 100lb difference between the two.

    There really isn't much of a difference, and in some cases we have personally seen a couple of T-top cars that came in a little heavier than a pair of verts that I have.

    Been over this before in detail,,,,so several months back I called a couple of friends to meet me at the scale.

    I have a pair of verts, one weighs 3,550 lbs. and the other weighs 3,620 lbs.

    One of the T-top cars at the scales that day actually tipped in slightly heavier than both of my verts at 3,7XX lbs. (can't remember the exact number now) But it had us scratching our heads

    Fact is you can't go by what others have said, or by curb weights posted by manufactures etc....The only way to know for sure is to put your individual car on the scales, get a group of buddies together as I did and compare cars that way,,,you may find some interesting results.
