"Ladies and gentlemen, what if I told you that in just a few short years, your automobile won't even have to touch the ground at all. With Stark gravitic reversion technology, you'll be able to do just that."
Howard Stark[src]

A Hovercar is a personal vehicle that flies at a constant altitude of up to few meters above the ground and used for personal transportation.

History

The first hovercar being displayed on stage

In 1943, Howard Stark presented a hovercar at the World Exposition of Tomorrow. The audience was impressed, despite the failure of the prototype.[1] Four years later, the second hovercar was fully operational, and was used by Stark and his friends to close the portal that led to the Zero Matter Dimension.[2]

Many years later, Phil Coulson obtained a 1962 Chevrolet Corvette that he affectionately referred to as Lola. This vehicle was upgraded with technology based on the Stark Hovercar, allowing it to fly, amongst other things.

Trivia

  • In Marvel Comics, many S.H.I.E.L.D. agents drive hovercars that use very similar technology to Howard Stark's prototypes.
