The first flying cars are set to go on sale to the general public as early as 2015. Terrafugia has announced its Transition design, which is part car, part private jet with two seats, four wheels and wings that fold up so it can be driven on land. The company hopes to have the 'flying car' on sale in less than two years.

The Massachusetts-based firm has also unveiled plans for a smaller model that will be fit in a two car garage, and, because it takes off vertically,  won’t need a runway. Would you buy one?
