Yeah, it's a flying car. :D

Introducing TF-X: Terrafugia’s Vision for the Future of Personal Transportation

Let’s say that you’re traveling on the freeway to a business meeting and your GPS tells you that the road in front of you has just become impassable. There is an alternate route available; however, it adds an hour and a half to your journey. You will miss your meeting. This could be a nightmare. It seems there is an answer being developed. It is a hybrid car that transitions into an airplane.

It'll fix traffic jams, all right...on the ground. Since everyone will be in the air, that's where the jams will occur, and they'll occur at far faster speeds.

High speed traffic jams? Doesn't sound too bad.

I used to want flying cars, until I commuted daily on the Valley Freeway (WA SR167). Based on the average competence level of the drivers there, I decided that the LAST thing we need is for those people to be pilots!

Yeah but a minor accident in the air could prove very fatal. Natural selection at it's finest!
