The same idea gets refreshed every 5-10 years. There's been dozens of these concepts over the decades, and not one of them has ever gone beyond prototype stage and maybe a few kits to ambitious pilots with experimental certifications, to the best of my knowledge.
The problem is the compromises that have to be made to be able to fly, and to drive at highway speeds almost inherently mean that in being able to do both, it will be good at neither.
The idea of the general public having one wouldn't be a threat. It would be illegal for them to fly it without a license.
