Dreams Come True: Boeing Partners With Porsche On Electric Flying Ca

Recommended Posts

U.S. planemaker Boeing Co said on Thursday it was working with Volkswagen’s (VOWG_p.DE) sports car brand, Porsche, to develop a concept electric flying vehicle capable of transporting people in urban settings. Boeing is already competing with arch-rival Airbus SE and other companies to introduce small self-flying vehicles capable of vertical takeoff and landing. Earlier this year, the planemaker conducted an inaugural test flight of an aerial car prototype that could accommodate two to four passengers and fly up to 50 miles.The test flight was within months of Airbus showcasing a prototype of an autonomous passenger vehicle in partnership with Volkswagen’s premium brand, Audi, that has the ability to both fly and drive. Porsche has been aiming to build flying cars that can be used as taxis and for ride-sharing purposes.

Boing might as well research the flying car concept space, it’s been striking out on passenger planes recently.

Btw... They are not alone. Airbus SE started testing a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) vehicle about a year ago, and Larry Page’s Kitty Hawk company recently demonstrated a super quiet, single-passenger VTOL...
