Ready For Takeoff?

Finally-a flying car?
More like a driveable plane than a flying car, the two-seat vehicle can fold up its wings -- just like putting the top down into a convertible car -- and fly with a cruise speed of 100 miles per hour; it can also be parked inside a single car garage, driven on the road on a highway speed and run on automotive gasoline.

Terrafugia has been flying prototypes of Transition since 2009 and is now very close to getting it to the market. "We have over 100 orders for Transition," says Dietrich, adding that Transition costs $279,000. "We are expecting to ship the first products to customers in the second quarter of 2016."
It's the landings that are hard...
