This thread got me to thinking:
http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53099

Bane complained about a Lexus being 3800 lbs and wished it was 1000 lbs less. So here are 28 other cars are under 3000 lbs that he can buy if weight is his main concern! LOL
1. Smart fortwo = 1808 lbs / 70hp
2. Lotus Elise = 1984 lbs / 190hp
3. Lotus Exige S = 2077 lbs / 220hp
4. Toyota Yaris = 2295 lbs / 106hp
4b. Honda Fit = 2432 lbs / 109hp
5. Mazda MX-5 = 2441 lbs / 166hp
6. Hyundai Accent GS 3-Door = 2467 lbs / 110hp
7. Chevrolet Aveo = 2544 lbs / 103hp
8. Honda Civic Coupe DX = 2586 lbs / 140hp
9. Ford Focus S Coupe = 2588 lbs / 140hp
10. MINI Cooper Hardtop S = 2668 lbs / 172hp
11. Nissan Versa = 2671 lbs / 122hp
12. Toyota Corolla = 2723 lbs / 132hp
13. Suzuki Reno = 2745 lbs / 127hp
14. Suzuki Forenza = 2756 lbs / 127hp
15. Pontiac Vibe = 2855 lbs / 158hp
16. Honda S2000 = 2864 lbs / 237hp
17. Toyota Matrix = 2865 lbs / 132hp
18. Honda Civic Si Coupe = 2877 lbs / 197hp
19. Volkswagen New Beetle = 2884 lbs / 150hp
20. Kia Spectra LX = 2919 lbs / 138hp
21. Saturn ASTRA XE = 2921 lbs = 138hp
22. Mitsubishi Lancer DE = 2922 lbs / 152hp
23. Scion tC = 2932 lbs / 161hp
24. Toyota Prius = 2932 lbs / 110hp
25. Hyundai Tiburon GT = 2969 lbs / 172hp
26. Porsche Cayman S = 2954 lbs / 295hp
27. Porsche Boxster = 2965 lbs / 295hp
28. Volkswagen Rabbit = 2975 lbs / 170hp
29. Pontiac Solstice GXP = 2976 lbs / 260hp
30. Saturn SKY Red Line = 2990 = 260hp
31. Chevrolet Cobalt SS = 2991 lbs / 205hp

Out of the list of 32, I consider only 11 (bolded) to be performance based and are quick or can be made quick with just a couple of mods.

Anyway, no main point to this thread. I just wanted to see what kind of cars were under 3000 lbs. It's actually more than I thought.

I pulled data from yahoo autos. I believe if you look at most cars, the convertibles weight more than their counterpart hardtops because they add more structural support underneath.

Example:
08 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe = 3179
08 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible = 3199

You're missing the 1993 Infiniti G20. ~2800 lb stock and ~2680 as is. All of 140 HP stock, but probably 20 of those horses jumped the fence in the last 15 years.

Ha!
