Terrafugia founder Carl Dietrich was once online for Gofly Prize training discussions and he answered some questions. I told him that they would have progressed a lot faster if they made a tricycle model rather than a four wheel car but he said they wanted a machine that is not missing a wheel.

Larry was certainly a visionary and a do-er, not a useless lawyer.

If you plan to hover up and down the street, you don't need any wheels at all.

Checkout this disguised as a car Mosquito Air:
I see a logo on the "bonnet" of the company called Pegasus. Their page I used to know is dead, but I do recorded what they were up to when it was online: https://rotorcraft.info/frontend/catalog/rotorcrafts/index.php?t=0&st1=1&m=226&st2=1

Edit: New page: http://www.pegasusflyingcar.com/
As a four wheeled vehicle this would never receive Department of Transportation approval.

Approval only necessary if it's taken on a public highway, ofc

How about something like this one?
My own design that won 19th place at Teknofest Istanbul in 2020.
