Talk about "self driving" cars. Now this one would suit me just fine.

James Bond would be right at home in that. Me, not so much.

Hell the CGI is crappy. I don't think I'd trust the builder if they can't get the ads right.

We've been chasing this dream basically since 1946, when pilots came home from the war and Popular Mechanix regularly opined that we would all have auto/aircraft hybrids in the near future.

I used to have some old Mechanic's Illustrated mags from the '30s and '40s and there were a few articles on Flying Cars, and a couple of home made ones that actually worked. I guess the country isn't ready for idiots on the roads and in the air... :wink:

Look guys, the cars of the future, in fact some today, are so computer controlled that drivers have been woken up after being stopped by police so idiots abound. As a former pilot, I'd love to have a VTOL flying car with a range of some 500 miles, especially with the computer controlled flying aides they have today.

Meanwhile, enclosed AutoGyros are a reality, and have been for a long time. Not VTOL, but close.
Also, AGs have the very worst survival rate in crashes.
I wish for you the courage to be unpopular. Popularity is history's pocket change. Courage to tell the truth is history's true currency.

Flying cars are the transport of the future! As they have been since the 1930s...

Better hope it's self driving as there's enough bad drivers on the road, and sure don't want them in the air over my house!
