what makes carbon particularly expensive is that its not used in many applications, its scarce. Paradoxically you cant increase its use to drive down cost because of the cost...
that is true come to think of it.
i think one of the only ways to cut cost when it comes to CF is to make a part, a car part for example that is part carbon fiber and part metal.

It's not just about cosmetics but also performance, this does result in weight reduction
LOL which is negligible on a street car. Oh that 2 pound weight savings will translate to what .001 on the track of the typical owner? I get it we all think we're the next Senna, but lets not step in to the realm of absurdity and pretend like anyone is going carbon for a performance bump. Becuase we all know if someone wanted pure performance they're not going for a Lexus...
