At the blink of an eye, technology is jumping through loops. When I was a kid, I thought by the year 2000, we’d be flying in the air like the Jetsons. For those who grew up in the eighties would definately know what I’m talking about. However, we have surpassed that, & I have yet to see a flying vehicle. That is until I came across the Aptera:Hovercraft-Chic.
When I first saw a picture of this contraption, I immediately thought about the year 2020. Don’t ask my why I chose that year in particular. I guess by this time cars will be driving themselves. Afterall, some cars automatically parallel park themselves these days, so go figure?
Aptera motors is gearing up to bring you the hovercraft you’ve always wanted. The best thing about the hovercraft (sorry, the Aptera) is its efficiency. This vehicle, though its appearance may be somewhat smoke, mirrors, and Back to the Future, gets 230 miles per gallon. That’s pretty darn good, and you don’t have to run it on trash or even power from the clocktower when struck by lightning.
The hybrid Aptera will begin production in 2009 and cost about $30,000. That’s just around 8,500 gallons of gas!
Wouldn’t you want to be one of the first individuals to pull up to Neimans in this? I know I would. You’d definately be the center of attention!
