The turtle van has a variety of origin stories, most of which are very similar.

2003 animated series- After a run in with the Purple Dragons, the turtles end up stealing the dragon's already stolen van. After a while Donatello revamps the van and renames it 'the Battle Shell'.
2012 animated series- The newest incarnation of the turtle van isn't a van at all, rather a subway car which formerly served as Leatherhead's hide out, it was transformed into a vehicle capable of traveling on and off subway tracks and renamed 'Shellraiser'.
Every incarnation of the turtle van has had a large variety of high-tech gadgets and weaponry to aid the ninja turtles in their crime fighting adventures. Just a few of the vans many features: Missiles, GPS, oil slicks, water cannons and armor plating.
