Airbus’ new driverless airborne taxi/gigantic drone concept looks great! It’s so cool to see a major air company work on what’s basically a flying car. Oh, wait, does this thing pass the two year test?
Christian Von Koenigsegg is a lucky man. His unconventional ideas about automotive engineering—pioneering FlexFuel, camless engines and gearless transmissions—have made him and his small supercar company wildly successful. He’s lucky he didn’t try to start his business based on his theory of gravity, which he does not…

Remember AeroMobil? Last year they were promoting their flying car, which I went out on a limb to say is never really going to happen. Like most people, they don't give a rat's rectum about what I think, so they went ahead and made this video of their fancy flying car.
Don't hold your breath for any of these ten car rumors. Even though they refuse to die, none will happen.
Elon Musk took to the stage at the Vanity Fair Summit ahead of the Big D unveiling tomorrow, and in addition to talking about how we all could be living in a Matrix-style virtual reality and the perils of our current patent system, he made the obvious case against flying cars.
You know what manner of shit I can't believe? This shit. This shit right here. This flying car crap. Wired in the UK is telling us that the "flying car may have just landed," but what they really mean is "here's another remarkable flying car that'll never get made because this is how this always goes, forever."
The market for flying cars must be heating up because companies are definitely pushing them towards reality in the hopes people will buy them. We saw the most convincing version of the Aeromobil recently, and now, there's the SkyRunner, the creation of a Louisiana company with the help of Ecoboost power.
For those of you who still think we should have flying cars in the 21st Century, your demands have been met by this thing from Slovakia.
No matter how many rational arguments you make or how much reminding you do about how bad people normally drive on the ground, there will always be those who dream of a flying car. Which is why I'm so surprised I've never seen anyone try anything like my terrible idea here: a hot-air balloon car.
A very clever UK-based guy named Witold Mielniczek has started a Kickstarter for an RC flying car. We're at a point now with flying cars that every time I hear about a new one my eyes instinctively start rolling, but this one actually seems an original and novel idea. Let's see why.
An experimental flying car crashed this morning near a school in Canada. Does this mean it is also the first ever flying car crash? (UPDATED)
When people imagine what the future will be like, they inevitably envision that one day we'll all have flying cars. Let's forget that this is a terrible idea because most people suck at driving on the ground. That doesn't matter. People want their flying cars! It's 2013, for crying out loud. Where are the flying cars?
Terrafugia made big waves last year with the introduction of the Transition, the first flying car. Sure, it was more of a driving plane than a flying car, but it brought a dream everyone has had to life. They're already planning a successor to the first model, and it'll go 200 MPH, take off vertically, and do other…
Wouldn't life be easier if you could just get into your flying car and soar over traffic jams straight to work? We asked Jalopnik readers to come up with ten examples of this awful dream, killing people and ruining lives.
My enthusiasm for the Terrafugia Transition flying car has never waned, but after seeing it through the eyes of Taiwanese's Next Media Animation I'm even more excited about the prospect. Imagine flying around with Gary Busey and his weird Back To The Future shirt. Just remember to alwa—- OMG WATCH OUT FOR THAT PLANE!
I've always thought that flying cars were similar to videophones; people have been demoing them since the middle of last century, but they never really managed to catch on. Then I realize I use a videophone all the time on my computer, and all of a sudden flying cars don't seem so impossible. Especially with new…
If you're one of those people who's always wondering why the flying car hasn't been invented yet, you're too late. The first flying car was already created back in the 1970s — but don't get too excited. It was literally a huge disaster.
