Well, to stir things up, I read it would be aluminum. Probably more likely than CF.

everything is still speculation...as far as cab goes, but more then likely not...more like the 335 hard top vert...

My bet

I have heard Al, steel and CF as well. My guesses in order are:

1. Steel: very likely to use the roof right off of the 335 vert
2. Aluminum
3. CF: Very unlikely IMO due to cost considerations. A single rectangular (almost flat) panel with steel on all edges is fairly easy, all the parts for a folding CF roof would be difficult, require all new tooling, design, engineering and be $$$
