Company Promises to Start Mass Producing Flying Cars by 2016

 

The inventors of a flying car say they are only two years away and a few million dollars short of having their product ready for the public.

 

Speaking to the Journal, CEO Carl Dietrich acknowledged that he has already received 100 pre-orders for the vehicle — each costing roughly $279,000 — and plans on being able to fulfill those requests within the next two years.

If this wasn't made by you Wade, I'd see it as a troll thread. That looks hideous  :laughing:

 

Still, pretty cool but why does the video look like it's from the early 90's? That music  :smh:

I think if this creates an industry of its own:

 

1) The look of the vehicles will improve

2) The cost of the vehicles will decrease

 

These flying cars would be perfect for somebody like me who wants to fly. Rather than just buying a plane, which is more difficult to transport by itself, I could have both in one.


I suspect that even if this wasn't useful for the average consumer, a weaponized version of these vehicles could be useful for the military. They can fly to a location where a car could not otherwise reach and then use the car as necessary.

No way they are gonna just let normal people fly a car around. I mean people need to be basically molested at the airport just to sit in a plane.

It would be cool, but here's the one thing I've always had in mind: cars break down.  OUR cars.  They wear and tear.

 

Professionals perform maintenance on planes routinely, and quite often compared to us and our vehicles.

 

Just the other day, I had a guy sitting in the Taco Bell drive-thru, and his rugged, 1987 Beretta had died.  I wonder what would have happened if his car-plane had died, and what would have happened to any passengers or those he eventually hits as he falls to his death.

tragic if one ends up crashing into another flying car in mid-air while falling into a traffic jammed highway.
