The German company Porsche and the American aviation concern Boeing plan to unite to create a premium electric flying car.

A few months after Porsche and Boeing announced their desire to make a flying car, a German automaker’s patent application appeared on the web demonstrating what this aircraft might look like. The patent was filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in the summer of 2019, however, it was published only at the beginning of this month, writes the foreign portal carscoops.com. The document describes the aircraft itself, capable of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL), and also includes a series of sketches. Such a car gets four large screws, responsible for up and down movement, as well as a 90-degree turn, and a small cabin for two people.

 According to the patent, for the performance of a flying electric car, instead of freely rotating rotors, many channel fans of different sizes can be responsible. Such a technical solution is known outside the aerospace industry, for example, it can be found on hovercraft.

 Recall that earlier Porsche and Boeing have confirmed that they are developing an electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft, calling it only a concept. Is a flying car captured on patent images, this conceptual device has not yet been officially confirmed.
