: This is not flame bait. I love my M Coupe and can't get enough of it. I just can't figure out why it weighs (according to bmwusa.com) 3131 lbs, whereas the bigger 911 Coupe weighs 2910 lbs. Where does all that weight come from?
: Or take the Z8 for that matter. 3495 lbs without hardtop??? That's outrageous!
: Any insight as to why the heavy weight would be appreciated.
