The game was supported by a wide range of expansions and supplemental rulebooks, a quarterly magazine that ran for 10 years, third-party supplements, a video game called ''Autoduel'' by Origin Systems, two different card games, a ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' roleplaying setting, three novels and even a series of adventure books that mixed a "choose your-own adventure" format with actual game mechanics.

Jackson tried a reboot in the early 2000s with Car Wars 5.0, but the system never took off--it was sold as various prebuilt cars in two-packs with each having a copy of the rules, and gamers who thirsted for the construction rules never got them. It didn't fare that well.

A spinoff was a card game with similar ideas, although some concepts are noticeably different. This was given an expansion pack, ''Battle Cattle'', which features ... well, guess. A second was a computer game, ''Autoduel'', from Origin Systems. There was also a tabletop RPG, using Jackson's ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}'' system and the ''Autoduel'' name.

''Car Wars'' was originally published by Steve Jackson Games in 1980. In this game, you typically play the role of an 'autoduellist', a futuristic sportsman who drove in autoduelling events. What's autoduelling, you say? VehicularCombat as a future sport, of course.
