convertibles weigh more than coupes, due to weight of top & mechanism, plus additional frame stiffening elements usually added.
The 2010 conv. loses ~6 cu.ft of total interior volume (cabin and trunk) compared to coupe too.
2007 Mustang GT Coupe curb weight (lbs) 3,351
2007 Ford Mustang GT Convertible curb weight (lbs) 3,613.
Careful passenger selection will equalize any perceived difference, and ragtops can be more selective
