I was wondering about that. I was thinking the other day how sweet it would be to walk out of work or whatever, see the sun shining, and hit a button on the remote and the top would go down.

No it won't.

I don't see power coming to the roof.

Same here... not until they redesign the car, which is several years off. The folding mechanism in the new MX-5 (esp. the hardtop) is brilliant. In order to have a power folding top for the Sky, they'd have to add servos not only to the roof (with what 3 pivot points?) but also to the trunk lid and the AFFBUTs. The extra weight would be significant, and the complexity would make it infeasible.

Personally, I'd pay a couple extra grand to have a hard top convertible like the MX-5. Hopefully the next-gen Kappas will have that option.
