Flying car pioneer Terrafugia shows of their latest design with the Terrafugia TF-X.

The future will be cool. That is when Terrafugia succeed and make the Terrafugia TF-X flying car a common sight.

Terrafugia revealed the Outer Mold Line for the TF-X, the four-seat, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) hybrid electric aircraft. The video below shows the TF-X how the engineers at Terrafugia envision it. 

Currently Terrafugia has built a one-tenth scale wind tunnel model to test the design. The development of the Terrafugia TF-X is expected to last 8-12 years. Fans of flying cars can already reserve a Terrafugia Transition now and will get first access to the TF-X. 

The TF-X has a full auto-pilot for flying capable of automatically avoiding other air traffic, bad weather, and restricted and tower-controlled airspace. 

The futuristic flying car will have a backup full-vehicle parachute system which can be activated by the operator in an emergency if the operator believes the TF-X™ to be incapable of auto-landing.

The details on the planned features of the TF-X can be found here.

The Terrafugia Transition is a less cool looking flying car. It looks like a small airplane with folding wings. The Transition is expected to sell for $279,000 and can be reserved for $10,000 down. Terrafugia expects that the Transition is ready in about 2 years.
