Like brand said, you can use the cable that came with your iPhone (or buy another one from Apple) and use it with pretty much any brand USB car charger, like below.
Plug ^^^^ into your car, and then plug your Apple USB to Lightning cable into that.

Let me spell it out again:
Any 12v to USB car charger will work, since the new lightning cables operate on the USB standard. You don't need to carry your 'home charger' around. Something like this would work.
Honestly, it's a little disrespectful to the community to put such little effort in.

Yeah, I just bought an extra lightning cable then went to Microcenter for a dual port USB car adapter. Plug in = instant car charger. At $19 for the cable and $3.75 for the USB plug, it's quite a bit cheaper than I'm sure the dedicated car chargers will be.
You should be able to get spare lightning cables at pretty much any Apple store. I bought 4 extras (one for my nightstand, one for my home computer, one for my work computer and one for the car). The one that came with it is plugged in down stairs so I can charge there during the day if needed.

Using a USB car charger is better than a dedicated one anyway, because you can charge anything that uses USB, not just the iPhone.
Try to get one rated for iPad charging (2A) even if you don't have an iPad. They don't cost much more, and this way it'll have the power to charge pretty much any USB-charging device you'll ever throw at it.

You can use both ports at the same time.
