no need to worry about the analouge gauges on the webpage... you might notice that it also has the shelby mustang steering wheel, so it's just a stock Mustang interior and not necessaryly what KITT will look like in the end.

really, i can't believe they are so stupid not to have some kind of voice box for the new KITT. i mean, if you look at the avatars on this (or any other) KR board about 60% use the voice box of KITT or KARR, then about 30% use some picture with the scanner and the last 10% are a mix of Micheal Knight, the Trans Am or other things.
this means that the voice box is THE most recognizable part that is associated with KITT, followed by the scanner as second. the voice box is essential for the audience to have something visual to let them relate to KITT as a character, in the same you relate to the face of a human character.

What bothers me about the interior is that all the digital gages are supposedly going to be done with CGI instead of actually modifying the interior.

They should have installed something like this for the speedometer

That's a Nordskog aftermarket digital speedometer.

As far as the voice box though, they could always display that in the main display in the center of the dashboard.
