Terrafugia TF-X Plug-In Hybrid Flying Car

The flying car has been a staple of science fiction for decades. After all, who doesn’t dream of escaping traffic jams with the push of a button?

Well, the science fiction of yesterday can be the reality of today. Therefore, let us introduce you to the Transition, a car-airplane by Terrafugia, a Woburn, MA-based company.

There are not many details about the Transition (officially called the TF-X). Terrafugia says it will be a four seater, and will feature fly-by-wire controls and “the state-of-the-art in intelligent systems”. It will capable of a vertical take-off and landing – just like a helicopter.

Terrafugia says the Transition is in the ‘earliest stages of design and feasibility studies’.

The Transition may not be heavy of details, but it already does have a price tag – $279,000.

Perhaps the Terrafugia TF-X is only a dream at this point – but enjoy some computer models of the vehicle – if only to consider what might be.
