Vehicle Weight and Power to weight ratio

Body

Vehicle Information: Year: 1987; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3 upgraded turbo, larger intercooler; Total Mileage: 100,000+;

What is the standard weight of an '87 930 and how light can it be made? I am considering deleting comfort (A/C, power windows, etc) items and non-essentials (back seats). Would it be possible to lower it to about 2000 lbs.? What type of weight savings would I get from using aluminum or carbon fiber panels, and Plexiglas? Would the power to weight ratio be better than a 2002 turbo GT2? My car has approximately 300hp. How will the handling be affected?
