  • Porsche patent reveals the company's unmanned aerial taxi design


    Porsche just a couple of months ago announced a collaboration with Boeing to develop a flying taxi. Now, a patent from the German automaker describing the operation of this future vehicle has been discovered. One of its main features should be the possibility of vertical take-off.

    Porsche filed a patent for registration in July 2019, but only published it earlier this month. The document describes an aircraft with four propellers: two static in the front part of the body and two larger and movable in the rear. It is assumed that the latter will allow the structure to move from vertical take-off to horizontal movement and vice versa. Representatives of Porsche also indicated that their transport is designed as an unmanned device, but if necessary, it can be managed by a person with a sufficient level of skill.

    Users of the Taycan EV Forum noted that the schematic images in the document partially resemble the concept that Porsche presented when announcing cooperation with Boeing. Then the company said that their flying taxi will be equipped with a vertical take-off system - so the new mode of transport will be able to do without landing strips. At the same time, the patent states that the development can be used in the production of other devices, including hovercrafts.
