Noise

"Another option on the table at the moment, according to our source, would be to keep the folding hard top concept, but with carbon fiber panels and carbon fiber arm extensions. This would be costly, for sure, but it would achieve a higher level of interior noise reduction without much weight."

CF does wonders for weight reduction but is terrible for higher noise transmission (I work in acoustics software...) Magazines... ugh.
