Some cars on the road make you feel like you're in a Sci-Fi movie or in an episode of the Jetsons. Then again, it is 2014. (Eep!) We want to help you get oriented to the here and now, and picked out some of the most futuristic cars that are on the road today or will be very soon. Enjoy!

1) 2012 Fisker Karma
Any car that actually comes in a "stealth mode" or "sport mode" is automatically super freaking futuristic, which is why we have added the 2012 Fisker Karma to this list. Stealth mode gets you at a top speed of 95 mph for 50 miles and sport mode will top you off at 125 mph for 250 miles. And, it's pretty easy on the eyes to boot.
2) Nissan Motivity 400C
Does this thing even have a window?! Or does its cool-ness just make sure that all other cars on the road will defer to it? This car was designed to be triangular so that air resistance would be at a minimum, making it easier to acclerate-- within the speed limit, of course...
3) Bugatti 57 Atlantic
Okay, is it just me, or does it look like this car should be flown and not driven? I can't even imagine the traffic it will cause on the streets as people gawk at it. What the what!
4) BMW i8
The i8 makes you feel like the future is here in front of you and almost tangible. It's undeniably pretty and sleek, unlike any other car on the road, and did we mention that it's electric? #marryme
5) Volkswagen XL1 (image from Jalopnik.com)
Any car with Delorean-like doors is futuristic in my book. (Yea, my book has sort of low standards. Shaddup.) The best thing about this car is that it's a diesel plug-in hybrid. It only seats two, so becoming an XL1 driver's plus one is a pretttty big deal.
6) Audi A9
Where is the window?! Why is this not freaking anyone else out?! Well, I feel a little better because this car is still in concept mode, partly due to the fact that the material they are hoping to use for the windshield has not yet been invented. (UH, WHAT.) Concept designer Daniel Garcia says it will be a windscreen that can repair itself and adjust its opacity according to the situation. Innnnteerrressstttingggg.
And here is a video of a bunch of futuristic cars that were on display at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. (DROOL-WORTHY)
