Reportedly, DeLorean Aerospace promises that their DR7, a personal commuter aircraft, should be fully flying by the end of 2018. The shape looks less like an airplane and more like something flying out of Blade Runner. You know that shit is coming.

Using a centerline twin vectoring propulsion system (CTV), the DR7 manages an aerodynamic shape with a small drag signature. The fuselage acts as an airfoil with stall-resistant canards, much as the Blackbird SR71 does for importance. It not only improves efficiency but increases low-speed stall resistance. With its dedicated thrust-vectoring fan system, it doesn’t need a rudder. Efficiency is high and higher cruising speeds are more possible than with normal VTOL designs.
