Hmmmmmm... I kinda thought the blue suit and red cape would give it away. :wink:

It's a joke... I never honestly thought anyone would take it seriously. :roll:

:lol: Sorry guys... I couldn't help myself. I was REALLY bored at the office today, hahaha!

Nelson B is correct... I shot it at the Little Rock car show... it's Louisell's replica with a really short dude posing as Superman.

EXCLUSIVE FIRST PIC... Mike Tracer in KITT...

Not exactly the look I was expecting... but it's SUPER cool to see that he'll be in the classic KITT at some point in the movie.

the chevy-orange 350 (why not pontiac blue?) with the gaudy weiand blower intake doesn't exactly look like a turbine engine. It would be chevy orange since Pontiac quit putting ponchos in their cars since 1979. It was cheaper to just use the same engine across all 3 brands of GM vehicles. I was awa...

I would say it's more a case of too few coupes being on the market... and even fewer manufacturers willing to typecast their flagship sports cars to a made-for-TV movie.

The Acura is nice... but the Nissan GT-R shouldn't be overlooked. Very nice lines that are somewhat reminiscent of the third gen. T/A. It's less exotic that the Acura... but then again, KITT was never an exotic-styled vehicle. VK, overlook the NBCU logos... I was very bored at work. http://aycu22.we...

Hmm.... the car of tomorrow... with the look of yesterday? :roll:

I'm not buying it.... not in that state. Even after disregarding the horrible Photoshop work, the scanner is an AWFUL design. It's possible that the Mustang could be one of the shapeshifting cars, I guess.

I'm going to come right out and say it... IMHO, if the NBC project hits the airwaves, there will be no Larson/Weinstein movie in theaters. That's not to say that I don't want a Larson-scripted KR feature... but I just don't see the project getting financial and studio support after, success or fail,...

That would be interesting considering Universal sanctioned George Barris on Michael Scheffe's behalf issuing a cease and desist order on making any more claims to designing the K.I.T.T. car or producing further replicas as well as the DeLorean from BTTF. m Yes, I am aware Barris designed the SPM an...

07 NBC KR KITT rumor...

Take this with a GIGANTIC grain of salt... I spoke with Rob Louisell at a Little Rock car show... he claimed that George Barris approached him at the show...mentioned that he's talking to NBC/Univ. about the pilot, then asked if he would be up for using his replica in the production. Rob said the sh...

VC- Without giving away details, how did Larson handle the exact make and model of KITT in the script? Did he have a particular car in mind, much like in his pilot script? Did he leave it open for product placement? Did he specify a fully custom, one-off vehicle for KITT, like KR2000?

Just use the Trans Am concept based off the new Camaro. To my knowledge, there is no official 09 T/A concept... only uncommisioned fan art. I could be wrong, though... someone hit me with a link if there is something. IMHO, the new F-body is far too late 60s/70s inspired to make a good KITT. ...I g...
