It can reach 60 miles per hour (96 km / h) in 2.7 seconds for the coupe and 2.8 seconds for the convertible. Both have a top speed of 198 mph (319 kph).

The hottest variant lightweight package cuts about 66 pounds (30 kilograms) through changes like removing the rear seats and removing some sound insulation. The Sport Package adds SportDesign body parts, different trims, and clear taillights.
