Unlike a flying-car, the approach being taken by Terrafugia was to design a vehicle for pilots that brings additional ground capability to an airplane instead of attempting to make a car fly: the result was Transition, a road-able airplane. Once on the ground, the plane can fold up its wings and drive almost like a normal car thanks to a certified aircraft engine that runs on unleaded automotive gasoline.
