2195 with 1/2 tank gas and me in it. Corner-weighted within 6lbs each corner. Gutted, no accessories, no soft/hardtop, and some "creative" lightening.

This is with the the heavy Rota Rbs w/215 tires and no turbo. I'm on some pretty light Work rims right now and I'm turbo'd so who knows what the difference in weight is now.

there was a guy who brought his car to < 2000 lbs? from way back? he was drilling holes all over the body, shortening bolts that were "too long", etc.

can't seem to find the link at this moment..

exhaust is just head to muffler and exits toward the ground before the rear axle.
any misc unused bracket was removed.

I guess I could go on and on, but please realize that this is not a street car.

I'm sure you could get a street car down to that weight, but you will have to give up some creature comforts.

Here's a picture of my car:

and it still looks good :gay:
go for boost

Dunno how much mine weighs
No AC or PS, 15" alloys, clocked Greddy kit (@6PSI) with upgraded 3" pipes, soft top right now but hardtop to go on for the winter......and I only weigh 80LBs
Plus, I just out dragged a 2L Toyota Celica in a straight line up to 110mph with another 80LB 'body' in the car and a boot FULL of heavy *** tools and he got the shot on me in second gear
(I clawed back 4 car lenghts ).

Oh *****, I'm 168LB and not 80LB.
Sorry LOL we have weight in 'Stones' here...must have hit the wrong button on the converter
12Stone=76.2KG=168LB.

(PS) I'm 6' 4"
