Hello -

This is just what Amory Lovins has been squaking about for the last 10 years :

What is a Hypercar Vehicle?

That dovetailed into a carbon-fiber composites company :

The way I see it, it will "creep up" into different auto industry components. The whole auto won't be fiber, but maybe the heaviest parts will be replaced over time.
