Hopefully this marks the emergence of economies of scale coming into play for the use of carbon fiber. With any luck, the main body, and possibly even the chassis, of all cars could be made from CF, reducing weight and increasing fuel economy at once while leaving the basic gas engine at the same power as it is today. Increased safety, greater fuel efficiency and overall faster cars in one "swell foop."
