Can't recall exactly where I read it (owner's manual, perhaps?) but I think my '87 weighs in about 29xx lbs. I'm surprised the 997 is as light as Porsche says--less than 100 lbs heavier than my 930? With all those technodoodads and safety equipment? Does that weight include gas/oil/coolant/AC refrigerant/other fluids, battery, etc? It's a common tactic for sportbike manufacturers to list curb weights of 350-some pounds, sans vital fluids. Then a motorcycle mag puts the bike on its scales and finds the actual weight to a bit heavier.
