Re: ford is an insult to the knight industries

I think ruling out Ford (or any car) by default because it is no Firebird´ish looking car is an insult to Knight Industries. Trust me... if this new Mustang will suck so much in the action sequences I will be also one of the people that will say... "yes, the nay sayers were right, it was bad!&...

Re: ford is an insult to the knight industries

I can see mid to low 12 second quarter mile times on the upcoming GT500KRs... Probably high 11s on the 720+ hp Super Snake... Definitely OUCH. But ouch also on your warranty... With that much power on a chassis that is not necessarilly top notch however, hopefully, Ford will do something about its h...

Re: ford is an insult to the knight industries

shinobi, I don't think the Edmunds comparison video is a fair comparison in that the Mustang Shelby is just overpriced. A Mustang GT that is only $27,000 has 300hp and that Mustang Shelby only has 319hp??? A lot of the overpricing is due to the Shelby name. People will pay more for the car just for...

Re: ford is an insult to the knight industries

I agree with the title 100%. Even if it's old I think that the K.I.T.T. "upgrade" was completely stupid. They would attract a bunch of original viewers by just using the old K.I.T.T. I believe original viewers will still be attracted despite using the new mustang simply because its a Knig...

Re: ford is an insult to the knight industries

Yea ,I have nothing against Japanese cars .They make great cars very reliable. Without going to far into it Kitt has to be an American car and like what was said limited options on the market to fit that bill plus GM wanted nothing to do with Knight Rider. There aren't many muscle cars out there to...

Re: I have a dumb question about KITT's voice

As much as I love Mr. Daniel's voice acting as KITT, I don't think his voice style would go well with such a robust car like the new Mustang GT500KR. IMHO Peter Cullen's voice as KARR would fare better... I wonder if VK will attempt the same voice style as Arnett's for KITT.... :|

Re: New KITT

I chose the Mustang. The others don't really work for a variety of reasons: Chevrolet Corvette Z06: I do confess this would look super nice, but it can cost upwards of $70K for the standard model, then you still have to modify the thing. It would be cost prohibitive to use this one. The GT500KR (Su...

I'm not knocking on how cool the mustang looks, but like you said, it just looks cool, no functionality whatsoever. The design of the Cobalt SS is based on trend as well...

Re: rwd vs fwd: what I am saying

On a slightly different topic, a car that can go 300+ mph should look the part and have aerodynamics and a drag coefficient of something that can go that fast. Though I am open to KITT being the current mustang in the new series, the star car's aerodynamics are not very convincing of something that ...

Re: KITT GT500KR's FAKE?

I doubt the public will know the difference anyway, especially on TV. A GT500KR uses the same exact chassis as the base Mustangs (only difference I believe is a modified suspension, bigger force induced motor, and a body kit), so its should be fairly easy to make a fake GT500KR. Just like all the po...
