This is an actual, honest to God, totally legit flying car
And here we have a vehicle that can roll down the road and fly to your destination without you having to touch a thing, thanks to the wonders of autonomous flight. By the developer’s (Terrafugia) most optimistic estimates, it’s only a decade away.
That said, there is roughly a zero percent chance of something like this going into production during our lifetime.
Not because it’s impossible -- it definitely can be done. Developing a vehicle that’s capable of vertical take-off and landing, so you can take off from your driveway, essentially, is difficult, but it’s been done before, and autopilot (both for cars and for planes) will get you down the road and up into the air while you’re taking a nap.
If I’m wrong, I’ll eat my words in a decade and gladly hop in a Terrafugia for a trip to the beach, where I assume cabana-bots will tend to my every need. But there are simply far too many legal, economic, and security barriers that a vehicle like this must work around, and a company like Terrafugia is, frankly, too small-time to clear those hurdles.
