Check this out:
Trim levels: RC, G, GT, GT “Limited.”
Weight: From 1,180kg (2,601 lbs) for the RC version to 1,250kg (2,756 lbs)
Engine: DOHC horizontally opposed 4-cylinder direct injection
Output: 147kW (200hp) / 7,000 rpm
Torque: 205nm / 6,400 – 6,600 rpm
Wheelbase: 2,570mm
“The U.S. model will be a Scion,” hachi-roku Chief Engineer Tetsuya Tada tells me later in a tete-a-tete. “Scion’s concept is one trim level. That should be comparable to our GT trim.”
Nothing here that we didn't already know except for 2 things.

The lightest version being the RC (the stripped down track version) only weights 2600lbs. That is without any serious weight reduction. You can already imagine how it is possible for this car to hit close to 2400lbs gutted, carbon fibered out, lightweight parts. That is LIGHT.
I'm sure the BRZ may be heavier then the FR-S but it's good to know a gutted bare minimum frame for the hardcore guys might be able to reach 2400lbs. That is 94 Honda Civic light.

It would require a ton of lightweight parts and a ton of money but there is probably a reason they opted to use this car for GT300.
