2012 NY Show – Terrafugia Transition
It’s a popular sci-fi prediction transferred from generation to generation — in the future we’ll all have flying cars. Well, all of us may not have them yet, but there was a flying vehicle on display at the 2012 New York Auto Show. The Terrafugia Transition may be more of a road-going airplane than a flying car, but it is a plane that can be driven like motor vehicle. With wings folded the 2-seater has the footprint of a large SUV and can be driven via standard carlike controls. After arriving at the airport, the wings unfold, flight controls appear and with a rear propeller to provide thrust, the Terrafugia can take to the skies.
