Well folks, your dreams of local news broadcasts filled with reports of flying car crashes may soon be reality, with Terrafugia hoping to be selling its Transition model of hybrid car-plane (starting around $280,000) as early as 2015. The company has also announced a concept for a next generation flying car, the TF-X (seen above), which is capable of vertical takeoff and landing for when you can't stand sitting in traffic a second longer. For me, that is every second. I actually had to move across the street from the office I work at because the commute was giving me panic attacks. And the good kind of panic like when you're nervous about kissing a girl, the bad kind where you start to daydream about what it would be like if you just jerked the wheel and launched over a bridge guardrail.
Hit the jump for a video about the next gen model.
Thanks to lilco, who agrees the best cars don't just fly, they fly themselves so you're free to make out in the backseat. Just don't accidentally kick the ejector seat button.
