That Chevvy thingy looks like a cheap town runaround with grandma in the front seat (no offence any grandma's reading this !)

Bad or what.......

There's not even room for a shopping trolley :lol:

I'd rather KI3T was a Nissan Skyline :D

The 3000 is a Mustang which in itself is an icon, lets give it a chance.

Not really, this mustang was really the wrong choice for this show, I Will not give it a chance, it just plain sucked,

Yes the mustang is an icon of it's own right, but not on this show, it just really bad.

Let's just all think about this for a second. It could have been much, much worse. At least K.I.T.T is still an american car.

Personally, I think that it should have been a challenger.

I still love the mustang but if Dodge would have made a deal with NBC, they should have the Challenger. I absolutely love this car. But I do agree, it could have been a camaro as well.

I for one think these type of threads should just all be killed off! KITT is a Mustang, Chevy and GM fans just get over it! This topic has been hanging around since the Pilot when it was announced that KITT would be the Shelby GT 500KR and I can not believe that some people out there just can't get over it, come on Chevy fans it is not all gloom and doom, you had the lead character in Transformers and Jimmie Johnson won the Sprint Cup again! :good:

I agree with Renegade94.
I've said this time and again. Knights ride Horses. The Mustang is a horse. It fits.....
Yes. I'm a GM fan. Would have liked to see the Camaro in the role. But since the Mustang got the deal, I'm happy with that too. Its an American Muscle car and those twin scanner lights give it a more updated look.
GM fans, we have Transformers for the Camaro. A Hit movie. No doubt in part 2 Bumblebee will return as a Camaro. So lets be glad and just enjoy the show.

Instead of grumbling over the choice of car, lets discuss what features of the old car we would like to see in the new car i.e.. Stealth mode. Or something more insane, becoming invisible like Bond's Aston.

The challenger's rear end looks so much like the rear end of KITT. It would look good in the role... However its looks more muscle rather than sleek tech. The camaro has that. The Mustang presents itself a something in between.

Gosh...it's time that people stop putting up these threads. The 8th. gen Civic would have ten times more futuristic looks than all the Ford,GM,or Chrysler muscle cars have. So what if the car isn't American? Yeah, my point of view sounds stupid, but hey...the Civic's dash looks better than the Mustangs.
Congratulations!By reading this signature,KITT's AWESOMENESS has increased by ONE POINT!
So far KITT's power level is OVER 9,000!!!!

Agreed. But the cars in the comparison here are the muscle cars from GM, Ford and Chrysler / Dodge.

EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!

And I don't know about Lynda, but when I say AMERICAN car, I mean MADE IN USA. As in, the Camaro is NOT American, it is Canadian!!!! The Ford Mustang is built by Americans, and it sustains the American economy. Especially in these economic times, why would we want to promote people buying foreign made cars?

With the Ford Mustang as KITT, people can get a Mustang GT, made by other Americans, and have it modified to resemble the GT500KR. In fact, NBC should have stuff on the web site directing people on how to modify a standard 2008 Mustang GT to look like a GT500KR.

Actually the Honda Civic IS Made in the USA, UNLIKE THE CAMARO OR THE CHALLENGER.

No, this image that I repeated proves that this car is just as boxy as a Mustang GT500KR. That is a BOXY 90 DEGREE FRONT END.

Contrast that with a Chevy Cobalt SS -- WHICH UNLIKE A CHALLENGER IS MADE IN THE USA -- which looks far more aerodynamic.

Image

The MADE IN USA 2009 Honda Civic Coupe is also far more aerodynamic than a FOREIGN MADE Dodge Challenger:

Image

Guess what, Challenger fans, the 2009 Honda Civic Coupe is MADE IN EAST LIBERTY, OHIO, which, last time I checked, was US SOIL. Where is the Dodge Challenger made? ONTARIO, CANADA!!!! Unless we annex Canada, a car made there is not an American car. It was built by Canadians.

I cannot understand how some of you can look at the Challenger and the Cobalt head to head and say the challenger looks like it would go faster. Granted, if you leave the same power plant in the Cobalt, yes, it will be slower. But if you put THE SAME ELECTRIC MOTOR POWER PLANT IN BOTH, the Cobalt would clearly be faster, because it is MORE AERODYNAMIC!!!

In any case, despite being boxy, the Ford Mustang is the only high performance car made in the USA by an American company to have a back seat.

Thus, it is clearly the best choice for KITT.

i was on the set the other day talking about this actually. i was told that the Camaro and the Challenger were considered, however Ford gave them the better deal. i like all 3 cars(Camaro, Challenger, Mustang), so i'm fine with KITT being a Mustang.

Finally someone who has the correct info on why it was chosen. It wasn't because GM or Chrysler turned them down, it was about which one was giving a better deal for the budget. Perhaps the production crew required the car to be an actual production model at the time and the mustang was the only one.
They did an excellent job on the new KITT. He looks great. Yes I'm a GM fan. But I like what I see and at times I'm tempted to go in for a Ford.... :lol:
