* ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} hovercars are both the TropeMaker and the UrExample. ComicBook/NickFury (and the reader) get their first look at the iconic [[AirborneAircraftCarrier Helicarrier]] from the passenger seat of a HubcapHovercraft Porsche, courtesy of course, of the explosive imagination of JackKirby.

* ''Videogame/{{Overwatch}}'' has these as part of the world-building: All the "payloads" on Escort maps have wheels tilted 45 degrees relative to vertical and have glowing blue (or red, depending on whether attack or defense is in control) rims.
-->'''[[DeadpanSnarker Hal-Fred Glitchbot]]:''' ''(if the payload stops on Hollywood)'' Might as well have ''tires'' on this thing!

* A derivative appears in ''Videogame/EliteDangerous'''s first ExpansionPack, ''Horizons''. The Surface Recon Vehicle is a six-wheeled rover for exploring planets and planetoids, and has a gimballed thruster in each wheel hub. On a low-gravity world, they fire upwards to keep the rover on the ground, whereas on high-grav worlds they fire downwards to prevent the suspension from bottoming out. The thrusters can temporarily be fired for a forward boost or a jump.

* The [=DeLorean=] in ''Film/BackToTheFuture Part II'' is the TropeCodifier. Turns out that by 2015, all cars can undergo a "hover conversion" like this.
** The Time Train from the end of Part III also has these, except it has its own thrust engines - the wheels are still, for some reason, rotated by the steam pistons in their flying position.
