Probably not. But the flying car is back in the news as the company Terrafugia, claims it’s delivering its car-plane, the Transition, to customers by the end of 2011.
“There is no launch button on the [instrument] panel,” Gersh noted.
Rather, the car-plane has wings that unfold for flying — a process the company says takes one minute — and fold back up for driving. A runway is still required to take off and land.
And at only $194,000, it’s practically a steal.
Now all we need is better video capabilities on our cell phones and Rocketeer-level jet packs and we’ll be in the future!
