Carbon Fiber will get to that point, it's slowly trickling down, but it wont get cheap over night, it's going to be YEARS. Big car makers using it on a mass scale will greatly help though

Alfa Romeo 4C is a good example, it has a carbon fiber monocoque, but I doubt we'll see it get that crazy with cars like the IDX.

apparently they also want to make a sedan so, we'll see how that goes and even if it has anything like what the 4C does, which it would be cool if it does.

how much could they have possibly spent on developing it,
can they not just get by with using that tech on just one car?

I don't know if this counts as trickle down but the BMW i3 uses a lot of carbon fiber. it is still luxury but it is not like it is outside of the price range of most people who are looking to buy a BMW anyway.

They have an i8 model, so likely there MIGHT be some similarity in parts or tech or just maybe they're taking a bit of a hit making it for the sake of getting in early on this segment. They have the cash for it, why not.
