Car planes have been around forever. I think they first started coming up with them right after WWII. This one does have an advantage in that its wings are attached all the time instead of being a separate module that needs to be attached to fly.

Here's one from 1956...


Car planes aren't very Jetson anyway. George flew a hover craft style UFO not a plane. This craft is more Jetson style...

At Fort Eustis they have a round one like that on display at the transportation museum they have there. It is pretty cool.

Here is a flying car I took a few shots of a couple of years ago.
