Mad Scientists: Why not a carbon fiber tube frame chassis?

I've asked this question on various forums - probably including this one a few times - and never gotten a really clear answer. I see folks welding tube and semi-tube frame chassis for 911's...but I always wonder why no-one bothers to get some carbon fiber tubing and use structural epoxy to build a chassis. In theory it should be easier to build and be ultralight. Granted, it would be difficult to repair in case of a crash - but that is also true of nearly all carbon fiber parts.

So why not build a tube frame chassis from carbon fiber?
