Description[edit]

The Slipper LX-Series Hovercar is the result of the Samuel L. Lewis's company's success with the Savannah Master. This allowed the company to expand into other markets. However, the vehicle in original form, the G-Series, uses conventional technology available unlike the Savannah Master.[1][1]

The LX-Series premiered in 3061, becoming company's most successful line of Hovercars. This was due to their economic design and high-speed. The vehicle also has a number of variants as well.[1][1]
