Corona Motors, in an effort to promote their new non-polluting car engine, hired the advertising firm of Carter & Lombardo to approach Spider-Man about building a Spider-Mobile. Initially turning down the offer as a dumb idea, Spider-Man reconsidered when he realized how badly he needed the money for rent and expenses. With the aid of the Human Torch (Johnny Storm), they completed the construction of the Spider-Mobile. After a crash course in driving, Spidey's first capture was of Hammerhead's thugs. Mysterio tricked Spider-Man into dumping the car into the river, but Corona Motors wanted their product back.
After being unable to find it in the waters, Spider-Man faced off against a modified version courtesy of the Tinkerer. Battling it out with the car, Spidey subdued the vehicle and returned it to Carter and Lombardo, albeit a little smashed..
Following the establishment of Parker Industries as a global conglomerate, Peter designed and built a new Spider-Mobile alongside Lian Tang, a designer at the Shanghai branch of Parker Industries. The new Spider-Mobile featured web-fluid airbags, a voice-operated computer system, the ability to drive along sheer surfaces or upside-down, and the ability to unfold its wheels into spider-like legs.
