It was recently announced that Toyota, the world’s second largest automaker, plans to create flying cars. And while other multi-billion-dollar firms such as Uber promise to implement the future mode of transportation by the end of the decade, the Japanese automaker has indicated it will have its flying cars in the sky by 2018. Part of the reason Toyota is working on a shorter window of time is because they plan to have the flying car completed and ready to light the Olympic flame when the global sporting event comes to Tokyo that summer.Dubbed Skydrive, the dimensions will be 9.5 feet by 4.3 feet, making it the world’s smallest flying car in the process of being produced. Toyota is providing around $375,000 to a team of engineers at Cartivator, a Japanese-based firm. Cartivator has indicated that by using jet-propelled technology, much like a drone, the flying car can reach roughly thirty-three feet off of the ground while maintaining a projected top speed of 62 m.p.h.
