How long will it be before consumers can invest in something like the Terrafugia TF-X? This compelling concept car is capable of driving around the neighborhood like your old Chevy, but it also boasts the ability of spreading wings and taking off with the help of several aircraft features.
You wouldn't need a runway to take off in your personal airplane -- simply put it into flight mode and a pair of 600-horsepower electric propellers will emerge and open up. These cause the innovative vehicle to levitate and then rise up straight, later retracting to let a 300-horsepower engine take over while you cruise at up to 200 miles per hour. When it's time to touch down, the Terrafugia TF-X can carry it out on autopilot.
