    Was curious what the car weighed. Right-Left and Cross weights look good. But the MS60 does not have a 50/50 Front-Rear weight split.

    2013 Model S 60

    Everything removed from the car
    Options: Tech package + Parcel shelf
    19" Factory wheels (I have aftermarket wheels, but they are within 1lbs of the 19" factory wheels.)

    The printout from the shop was pretty boring, so I made a graphic:

    I think I read that it was 48:52 somewhere, perhaps the specs page? Once you sit down in the drivers seat, it would be closer to 50:50.

    This is interesting, thanks. I think my car is even more rear biased because of the jump seats.

    That's a great point... 50:50 when i'm in the drivers seat.
