How could you be wondering, when Ford listed the curb weight as 3603 (or thereabouts).
The weights of nearly every car out there is always the "base" car.
The optioned out cars are always heavier than the listed "curb weight" from the manufacturers. Though some manufacturers "fudge" the weights just like they do the power. I weighed my 335i coupe and it came in about 150 lbs lighter than what BMW lists it at. It also make more power than the 300 hp they advertise (which everyone knows).
Cuz we all know a 3600 lbs car with 300 hp can't do 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and 1/4 mile in 13.4 @ 105+ mph.
Usually loaded cars are 50-80 lbs heavier depending on options, maybe more if there are lots of options like 20" wheels and panoramic or dual sunroofs.
What I am at least wondering is how much the 2011 GT Premium with Brembo Brake package weighs.
I'm sure it's a bit more than the base 2011 GT, but I'll bet it's within a couple lbs. As the "premium" options probably a bit, and the Brembo brakes probably add a few more lbs.
But the Brembo brake package car also has wheels that are about 3 lbs lighter each, and it does not have a spare tire, which saves about 30 lbs.
So my guess would be fully fueled up, it would be within 10 lbs of the base car.
