A number of carplanes (aka: roadable aircraft, flying car) have recently appeared on the market or will be appearing soon. The purpose of this site is to contrast and compare these vehicles and to provide the latest information on each. It is an unbiased site that is not funded by any of the manufacturers.

Below is a summary of currently available carplanes, or carplanes that are expected to hit the market sometime in the next 5 years. There are 10 real competitors and I have ranked them from 1 (best) to 10 (worst) based on their relative overall attractiveness.
The production date for the Terrefugia Transition has once again slipped, this time to 2017. This may be a result of their need to go back to the FAA for another waiver. Not good.
The German Carplane has a new website. Looks like there is some progress going on here.
The Aeromobile crashed in May of 2015. The ballistic parachute prevented serious injury but it looks like their progam will be set back a bit. Too bad.
