500 pounds weight loss is expecting too much. The car isn't any smaller and might even be a bit bigger. Some parts will be lighter aluminum this time but that Alcoa internal bulletin said it'll be the doors (front and rear inners) and hood (inner and outer). Just those parts being aluminum won't save 500 pounds.Happy to see a 2-door will still be offered.
With weight loss of ~ 500lbs?, a new smooth 6-speed manual, 300hp Hurricane, bikini top and no doors my empty nester days will be happy!
