Terrafugia XF-T Flying Car Offers Vertical Takeoff

by on May.08, 2013, under Auto Review Specs

As automakers go, Terrafugia is a niche company. In fact, let’s call it “super-niche”: manufacturers like Tesla may cater to a very limited subset of buyers, but Terrafugia’s target market is even narrower.Flying Car 2

That’s because Terrafugia makes flying cars. They’re not as cool-looking as the rides you’ve seen in movies and comic books since you were a kid, but they are cars, and they do fly — and Terrafugia’s latest model goes one step further.

That model is called the Terrafugia XF-T. and expands on the company’s existing Transition vehicle by offering helicopter-like rotors, which allow the XF-T to take off and land vertically.

According to the folks at Terrafugia, flying the XF-T “should be statistically safer than driving a modern automobile”. That’s in part because the XF-T “will be capable of automatically avoiding other air traffic, bad weather, and restricted and tower-controlled airspace”. (Terrafugia offers no details on exactly how that technology works, so for now, we’ll just have to take the company at its word.)
