With all else equal, and assuming an 11% weight gain, you're looking at a roughly 3.5%loss in acceleration, which varies as per the cube root of the power to weight delta.

So, a 12.6 goes to a 13.0, and mph goes from 112 down to 108.

Roughly four car lengths in a quarter mile, and the coupe is lightly jogging away at the finish.
