RWD corner weights (checked two RWD cars - within pounds of each other - one at 4K, other at 12K miles):
892 962
1041 976
Total - 3871 Lbs

Left 1933 49.9%
Front 1854 47.9%
Rear 2017 52.1%


Dual-Motor (NOT Perf model) with 225 miles on clock:
1004 1053
1029 976
Total 4062 Lbs

Left 2032 50.0%
Front 2056 50.6%
Rear 2005 49.4%

Removed the aero hubcaps and total weight went down to 4060 Lbs.

I will update this post when I get a Mdl3 Perf on the scales.

Official curb weight ("kerb weight" in the proper Queens English) is just the vehicle - no luggage, no driver/passenger. All fluids filled. As the vehicle would weight when parked. As delivered, new - with spare tyre (if equipped), charging adapters (if equipped), floor mats, etc.

GVWR is the total MAXIMUM weight the vehicle is rated to be/tolerate, including passengers, luggage, packages, beer coolers, etc.

OK, just trying to account the ~65lb discrepancy
I would say Tesla is rather optimistic in their published curb weight for RWD models in that chart. I weighed two Mdl3 and they were within 3 Lbs total of each other. ~65Lbs HEAVIER than shown in the published chart.

Agreed. And based on weights I've seen posted online by someone who actually weighed a few Model 3's, the difference between AWD LR and RWD LR is closer to 225 lbs, not 267 lbs.

Has anyone found the corner weights for the standard range model? I'm curious how the battery cells populate the battery tray.
