Remember watching “The Jetsons” on television and seeing the flying cars navigate across the TV screen? Back then, the mere thought of a flying automobile in real life was absurd. Fast Forward 50 years and absurdity is one step closer to becoming a reality. The Terrafugia Transition is a 1,320 pound vehicle that can serve as a car as well as a “light aircraft”.

“The truth is, until the vehicle actually flies, 75% of your risk is at first flight” stated one of the engineers right before flying off into the sunset. The outcome? Mission accomplished! The Terrafugia flew like a charm and already had 70 enthusiasts  leave a hefty deposit without hesitation. For a wealthy person, the cost of this car/plane is only chump change, starting at the low price of  $194,000. All you need is 20 hours of flying time and you’re good to go! I mean come on, can you really put a price tag on being able to park your plane in your drive way?
