Introducing TF-X – What will personal transportation look like in the future? Maybe like this, if aerospace company Terrafugia succeeds in its efforts to build TF-X.
1,2,3 take off! – TF-X is designed as a four-seat, plug-in hybrid electric flying car that's capable of performing fly-by-wire vertical take offs and landings.
Where's my (flying) car? – According to the U.S.-based company, TF-X will be able to fit into a single car garage and will have a non-stop flight range of at least 500 miles.
First attempt: Transition – TF-X might be at least eight to 12 years away, but Terrafugia has already built a vehicle that flies.
Skyworthy car – Since 2009, the company has been flying prototypes of Transition, a two-place, fixed wing, street legal airplane.
Yours with $279,000 – Transition runs on premium unleaded automotive gasoline and can fly with a cruise speed of 100 miles per hour. So far, the company says it has received more than 100 orders for the vehicle.
