@Georg yeah it certainly would be nice if Ford published an official weight. Oh well, I guess we have to find the magazine with the most reliable set of scales. Car and Driver claims to weigh each car themselves since they don\'t trust the manufacturer figures. I believe Motor Trend also does their own weighing. Road and Track tends to be unreliable on weight, possibly they publish what the manufacturer tells them, although I am not sure. I like Motor Trend for road test results, but trust the scales at Car and Driver. I probably would not trust Ford even if they gave an \"official weight\" for too much conflict of interest (they might skew the facts for marketing purposes).

why does not Ford publish the officel weight on their page... so we have three car magazines so far claiming three different numbers..

ranging from 3590lbs to 3750lbs..

According to Car and Driver the convertible Mustang GT 5.0 is 174 lbs heavier than the coupe and does not have as a great a chassis stiffness either. This is why the convertible is quite a bit slower than the coupe, but it does have the nice open air experience!
