The Times Online is reporting that the tests of Terrafugia's carplane will start next month:

If it survives its first test flight, the Terrafugia Transition, which can transform itself from a two-seater road car to a plane in 15 seconds, is expected to land in showrooms in about 18 months? time.

Its manufacturer says it is easy to keep and run since it uses normal unleaded fuel and will fit into a garage.

Carl Dietrich, who runs the Massachusetts-based Terrafugia, said: ?This is the first really integrated design where the wings fold up automatically and all the parts are in one vehicle.?
Yeah. It really does look like that.
