Yeah, of course it is too heavy. On the other hand it is fairly light for having a back seat. I don't think that it can lose enough weight to compete with a two seater of similar pwer. Somewhat different mission profile for these two cars.

Mustang needs to go on a serious diet to compete with the Z06
