    That is what it looks like. If you have a choice, get the carbon fibre. No glare (it's not often a problem, but once in a while...) and doesn't show the dust or fingerprints.

    Carbon fiber is also much harder to scratch, Piano Black plastic not so much.

    Right. I have a scratch on mine. No one notices it but me (or at least no one has commented on it). I would have gotten the carbon fibre if it had been a reasonable choice at the time.

    I think piano black is the same plastic as on the outside. And yes it can get scatched if you try. Also it attracts fingerprints. I'm gonna put a carbon fiber sticker on it.

    Did you know that piano black is not only vegan but also gluten free and dolphin safe?

    I do have the Piano Black but just wanted to know what the actual material is, because Tesla does not advertise it as 'Piano Black Plastic' but just as 'Piano Black'. Thanks!

    Recycled pianos that were put out to pasture for the last time.... I would think it obvious.
