The TerreFugia Transition is the first step toward becoming a Jetson.
The car-plane weighs 1320 pounds and can carry a payload of one-third its weight (so, maybe two adults and a computer). It has a 20-gallon tank and that lasts about four hours, claiming to get 30mpg in the air and 30-40mpg on the ground. The vehicle cruises at 120mph and needs about 1500 feet in order to takeoff. Presumably much less to land, if you do it incorrectly.
There is a nifty animation provided in the site.
