Flying cars are just TWO years away: Terrafugia claims its TF-X will be ready to take to the skies by 2018

Via NWN


Traffic can be a real grind. For those travelling between work and home by car every day, the seemingly endless cycle of gas-brake-repeat at a snail's pace can wear thin.

But commuters of the very-near future may be granted some respite by taking to the skies in a flying car.

The US company behind the concept vehicle TF-X is hoping a prototype will be ready to fly in just two years - and it will go on general sale within eight.

  1. But will you be able to get it with twin 20mm Vulcan cannons?

  2. hmm... need to know more about the 'it flies for you' since I don't think I'd be too cool being flown by a computer without me having any say in the controls during the flight, but... I'd buy one of those I think... would certainly make looking for a house in relation to working location, moot :)

    1. 'The TF-X operator will have final say over whether an approved landing zone is actually a safe place in which to land, and they may abort the landing attempt at any time,' the company says.

      It only mentions landing, but I assume you could override whatever.

    1. :) If you use it mainly for flying, the tread ought to last for a long time.
