Default Take a guess at the base weight????

What's your guess for the stated curb weight of the base coupe at launch or whenever it's officially published? How about $50 Amazon gift card (on me) to the closest guess...

I hope it's less, but going with 3,230 lbs.

Gonna need to be around < ~3400lbs to be competitive with other ME cars, methinks... (I am secretly holding out hope they can get back down to the svelte 3100~3200 range of the C5 & C6 Z06... but not holding my breath either, because I could definitely see GM putting out a porker too).

You guys are optimistic... you really think it's going to weigh less than a C7? C7... 3,347 lb (1,518 kg) (Base) 3,444 lb (1,562 kg) (Z51) 3,523 lb (1,598 kg) (Z06) 3,560 lb (1,615 kg) (ZR1)

I doubt it. I bet it's 3460 at least... slightly higher than the Z51.
