I would hope so but I just don't see that happening. Maybe 3500lbs but that will be on the very low end of my guess.

Here are some random numbers and guesses I am pulling out my ass. I do think these are reasonable though

450 hp
380 lb ft
7500 rpm red line from a turbo 3.2l I6
3550 lbs
Active diff like on the M5/6
65k base in the US and fully loaded a bit over 80k (no ceramics if this car even is offered it)
+1 I think your guesstimates will be very close to reality.
