Inspector Gadget, and sometimes Penny

Two pictures of the Gadgetmobile

The Gadgetmobile, also spelled the Gadget Mobile, is Gadget's trusty car that he uses when he is on his cases in nearly every episode of Inspector Gadget. It closely resembles a Delorean (in the original series) and is equipped with all sorts of gadgets.

In the Inspector Gadget film series, it is a talking male car with its own personality and mind. In Inspector Gadget 2, the Gadgetmobile is given a new look as a purple color instead of his former white color.

Modes

This vehicle transforms into 2 different modes:

Van mode

Gadget uses this mode when he is usually out on a family trip somewhere with Penny and Brain (like the airport, for example).

Police car mode

Gadget uses this mode to solve his cases in. Unlike it's van mode, this mode is much faster. This mode has things like a robotic claw at the front to grab things with and some "hilarious gas" (which come out from the back), etc. The Gadget mobile flies in only one episode of Inspector Gadget, which is Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas 1991.

Behind the scenes

In the original series, the police car mode closely resembles early Lotus Esprit models, and the cars Gadget uses in the live action films are based on early 1960s Lincoln Continentals. In the 2015 reboot, the Gadgetmobile resembles a Fiat 500, and can also transform into a race car that looks a bit like a Porsche in the front. This Gadgetmobile could also transform into a larger variety of other forms, and replaced the original after it crumbled to dust due to Gadget's hijinks.

In Inspector Gadget's Biggest Caper Ever, the Gadgetmobile was a sentient sky blue convertible with navy blue fenders, denoted as Gadget's car thanks to red G logos on it's doors and hood. Like the movie versions, this incarnation of the Gadgetmobile was capable of speech, but was given a more serious personality only edging out of Gadget's own incompetence. This Gadgetmobile also has it's own set of voice-activated gadgets, and on occasion, can drive without a driver. The Biggest Caper Ever Gadgetmobile could be seen talking to several characters within the film, and was voiced by the late Bernie Mac in the one-off special.
