Although there have been attempts to create flying cars going back decades (and even pre-dating the Back to the Future films), it’s not a technology that we’ve come close to creating. The closest thing we have to a flying DeLorean in 2015 is a DeLorean hovercraft created by Matt Riese in 2010 which has occasionally been seen on TV hovering in McCovey Cove during San Francisco Giants home games.
