Of course we all know that the coupe will receive the CF roof, however, it states that the difference in weight is compared to the steel roof with a moonroof. Is this to imply that a sedan purchased without the moonroof might be even closer in weight when compared to the coupe? How much is one to assume that the moonroof weighs?
SC, I think there was a thread here that said the CF roof saved only 11lbs vs. a normal steel roof. So yep, the sedan with no sunroof will be closer in weight to the coupe than the sedan with sunroof will. And in fact, it seems conceivable that a sedan without sunroof could weigh less than a coupe with sunroof.
