The FAA is what holds these cars back, that's the reason for the teather, it's not allowed to fly without it attached, it doesn't need it for stability, nor does it have any safety factors, the plane/car will smack right into the ground, it's only to help prevent damage to external parties.

http://www.moller.com/ is another skycar series that has been developed, they also face the same FAA problems.
