#CarNews: Porsche is working on Flying cabs

Porsche has confirmed it was working on developing a flying taxi car – but it could take a decade to become a reality.

The company’s head of development made the exciting announcement this week, explaining while it could take 10 years to finalise the technology and get the airbone passenger vehicles out there, they are in the early stages of drawing up a blueprint.

Speaking at the Geneva Auto Show on Tuesday (06.03.18), Porsche R&D boss Michael Steiner said: “We are looking into how individual mobility can take place in congested areas where today and in future it is unlikely that everyone can drive the way he wants.”

It would see Porsche and its parent company Volkswagen join a number of firms developing designs for flying cars ahead of a shift in the market towards on-demand digital mobility services and self-driving vehicles.

At the show, VW’s auto designer Italdesign and Airbus unveiled a new version of its two-seat flying car Pop.Up.

    Pleading with African Big Men and Dictators for forgiveness. Shouldn’t forgiveness be sought from the victims? Poor Samoei……. charged with accusations of rape, murder, arson and forceful eviction of populations….. the stench will follow him for the rest of his life

    The first trip of EVERY AFRICAN PRESIDENT should be to fellow African countries, not to western countries. Uhurutos foreign policy objective was regional ties strengthening, and this is a very positive first step. Ruto should actually visit all 52 african countries. We need to start looking at ourselves as one people. I remember Raila spent 80% of his time licking wazungus ass. This should not be the case with Uhuruto. They should strengthen regional ties so that we can export our macadamia nuts to Niger and Cameroon and we can buy their cocoa, instead of buying it from Cadbury’s in the U.K, it is a big shame that Safaricom posted a Kshs 25billion profit and yet 20billion went to the U.K and Kenyans got a paltry 50cent raise on the safaricom shares!. We have brilliant Telecom minds in Africa and we have to start turning our focus to ourselves. Kudos Uhuruto. All CORDOM followers are poverty stricken monkeys who should never see the helm of leadership of kenya for the next 50years.
