Really cool..but maybe a challenge for airspace control.

#1 indeed, people can't control their drones! Awesome detailing in that digital clip.

I'll believe it when I see it flying over me - I don't trust CGI.
The wings look far too small to support a vehicle that size. With even the driver alone, never mind with all four people aboard, the weight of the batteries with current technology would be enormous.
Pie in the sky...
Looks good, though. But so does the USS Enterprise. :)

That means that all car parks will have to be repainted as at the moment you have not got the room to park a car in some of them any body want a job painting all them white lines :D :D :D :D :D :D

#4 - It looks to me that the intent is to have designated take-off and landing pads. I doubt they intend for this to be used in parking lots, driveways, etc., otherwise we risk the annual number of civilian decapitations to rise 5000%

#1 #2 yea, but at the same time, to drive a car you need to take a license, so I would assume having one of these would require a pilots license :)

Terrafugia estimates 8 to 12 years before they have a prototype to test-fly. I doubt they will still be in business by then.

Just a question... where are the doors on that thing? :D 8-)

Am I the only one who thinks flying cars are a terrible idea?

I don't see the appeal of a mass of personal air traffic flying over our heads generating a ton of visual and audio pollution as well as increasing dramatically the chance of having something fall on our heads.

I'm really sorry, but I really don't know where to start.
Just a few things.
300hp is not 1MW it's at best 225kW
OK maybe they mean 1MW for take off only?

225 kW for 200 mph?? and charge the batteries for landing and take off?
Where does the energy come from? 300hp won't make that thing go at 200mph apart from in a dive.

Ducted fans, where? maybe one? hidden in the back but where was the air intake?

Weight. The thing is large, where is it's centre of lift when in ducted fan mode?
It looks far too far to the rear.

I await enlightenment from the inventors.
