Default Weight?

Does anyone know what a 5-speed 97 GT weighs? No leather.

I have found 2889-3160 lbs. That is a pretty big range. I would think I was on the low end of that range.

Realize that the weights are sometimes listed dry or wet with passengers.

From what I read quickly Id guess it to be more than 3k lbs

This probably doesn't help you at all, but just in case or if it at least gives you a reference. I drive a '01 L. It weighs 3260 DRY.
The second time I weighed it was slightly stripped and it came out to 3140 dry. 3310 Wet....can you guess my weight??

How did you weight it? I found the best place is just to visit the city dump. Sometimes they will do it for free.

Also, doesnt DRY mean no gas in tank, no fluid in transmission, no oil and no coolant?

HIHO,

According to www.cars101.com it is 2885-3160. I know that is a big range, but since the 2.5GT had all the extras and that range is for the model range I would guess 3100.

I got the info from here. It might help.

I corner weighted my car so it was very exact. I did it with little or no gas but full of other fluids. don't know if that is the meaning or not.

as from cars101.com

02 GT Sedan 3445 manual, 3,410 auto trans


man.. my GT's a heavy lil' thing. Now why would the manual transmission be heavier? Absence of the 5th gear? But wouldnt all that computer/electronics that handles the shifiting in the 4-EAT compensate for that?

i'd guess somewhere around 3000 lbs.

my 97 gt auto sedan with me in it, a primitive skidplate, big-ass sub box, and about 1/2 tank of gas was something like 3419 lbs during cornerweighting.

RoundTheBend sounds correct. The sales brochure for the '98s listed the wagon at 3180 lbs. I remember the wagon weighing about 80 lbs more than the sedan. (Brochure is at home)

On a side note: the WRX weighs about the same as the BD GT sedan. A little horsepressure, anyone?
