Re: Plot Hole: M. Long's T/A vs. KARR

Well for me personally, I always thought that it was a different Trans Am. I was 12 when the pilot aired in 1982 and I just thought it was a coincidence that Knight Industries used the same model car that Michael Long had. My reasoning was that the TA had great aerodynamics from the foundation's sta...

Re: Subura beats Shelby Mustang in

A better example is of a 400HP Corvette outperforming the 500HP Shelby GT500, as shown in a Car and Driver article: m This article shows that the Corvette is clearly superior to the GT500 and can be had for only about $4,000 more. But this is irrelevant to Knight Rider. It only means that the Corvet...

Re: Subura beats Shelby Mustang in

ckeller22, that's like saying the actor, Brandon Routh who plays Superman, just got easily beat by an average joe in arm wrestling - so how can you have Routh play Superman when he can't even beat the average joe. In the show, the Knight 3000 Mustang will probably have well over 1,500 HP in attack m...

Re: What do we refer to the new series as?

This just got me thinking: Has there ever been a TV series that has returned to TV years later and still had the same exact title??? I can't think of any, but then I'm not real familiar with a lot of the older shows before the '80s. (not including news and game shows) Maybe they will add something t...

Re: Will KITT still sound like a RAM JET or a normal car ?

The Knight 3000 has to have the Molecular Bonded Shell. That's the biggest and most important feature! If it don't have the MBS, I'm not watching.

Re: What If The 2009 Chevrolet Camaro...

That Camero is definitely not as a boxy as a Shelby Mustang. However, it is still trying to be more "retro" and more "boxy", not as futuristic looking as the original KITT. Plus the Camero is Made in Canada. I have no problem with Canada or the Canadians, but in my mind, Knight ...

As for the Camaro... the Camaro is a carbon copy of the approach that Ford did when they made this current Mustang. It is designed with the exact same idea, to revive the muscle cars. Infact while the Camaro was being designed GM had a Mustang right there in the studio's all the way to "see&qu...

Re: What If The 2009 Chevrolet Camaro...

Thank you, Matt, for more side-by-side pictures of the Mustang and concept Camaro. If the Camaro was as boxy and retro-looking as the Mustang, then I would agree that there is some major hypocrisy going on here. But looking at those pictures, the Camaro is much sleeker, smoother, and futuristic-look...

Re: KITT car poll PART II

None. Those are all poor chaoices. And too flashy. K.I.T.T. should blend in with regular traffic and not be so easy to spot, while at the same time not being a 1992 Honda Accord. The '82 Trans Am was too flashy then. The '82 T/A was a new design. In fact, in 1982 the new Trans Ams were really flash...

Re: Hasselhoff as Michael Knight

I think Star Trek did it right. In the pilot of The Next Generation, Dr. McCoy made a brief appearance to pass the torch.

Re: 2 things they missed on the new design

Question; how do we know that the car they unveiled, is gonna look like that when the pilot is shown? They have already been filming the show and are in the process of filming it, so I really doubt that they would unveil something different to the public. (highly unlikely, anyways) We don't know wh...

I know that. I said ORIGINAL KITT in the subject heading. I'm talking about the Kinght 2000.

From what I read, the Knight 2000 will be still be making an appearance in the show in some sort of way, so I believe the original Knight 2000 will probably say something!

I was just wandering: Since William Daniels is not doing the voice of good 'ol KITT for the new TV movie (I thought that's what I read), could it be possible for NBC to use the huge amount of recordings of William Daniels from the original Knight Rider?

I like the current Mustangs. They are cool looking, classic styled, and powerful. I even rented one in 2005 when I was out of town and I have to say that it was a fun car to drive. But that being said, the Mustang is a terrible choice for Knight Rider! When something changes that doesn't make sense ...

I'm not too sure about that. They're using the Shelby GT500KR, which is one of the most expensive models of the car. Its base price is going to be $55,000, I believe, but is going to end up costing a lot more because only 1,000 of them will be produced. The Corvette costs approximately what? $50-70...
