Which would make a better KITT?

Post by K2007 » Tue May 13, 2008 10:00 pm

Okay, here's the story:
I'm writing a fic that requires our boy Kitt to get a new car. I've shuffled through a few (or rather hundreds) of cars and ended with two finalists.

If a link is inoperable, let me know.

Option A: Peugeot 907 Concept (2004)
Side - http://www.autoblog.com/media/2006/06/907_0408ps034.jpg
Front - http://www.seriouswheels.com/pics-pqr/P ... 24x768.jpg
Back - http://www.autoblog.com/media/2006/06/907_0408ab002.jpg

Option B: MG XPower SV-R (2004)
Angle (front/side) - http://www.austin-rover.co.uk/images/xpowersvr_02.jpg
Front - http://www.a2z4cars.co.uk/images/mg%20xpower.jpg
Back - http://www.carbodydesign.com/vehicles/m ... cept-2.jpg

PLEASE NOTE - in my fic it will be black, not the crazy orange the last one is!!!

I spent a looooong time searching through bundles of rare and exotic cars and finally narrowed it down to these two. My goal was to find a car whose "personality" matched Kitt's. For instance, the even headlights on the MG or the back fender curve of the 907.

The polls are up, let's get voting!

I'm avoiding common cars. "Rare" and "exotic" are the two key things I'm looking for.

So far we have two votes: one for the 907, one for the XPower. It's 50/50 - who will split?

FOR MY VOTE....NEITHER.....!

I posted about this issue too many times to count & on different postings & with good, sound expanation...!

the -P O N T I A C R A G E O U S- is my choice....tho only a prototype...it looks, feels right...it'd look better in charcoal black! ( amber scanner for KARR -of course! ) and a real dark midnight blue for KITT with his classic red scanner )

I don't see Kitt as a Rageous. Karr yes, Kitt no.

And either way this is for MY FIC, so I've given two of MY OPTIONS.

If you don't like them, it's simple - DON'T VOTE.

Score - 1:3

The XPower is leading with two votes more than the 907.

People need to learn to read the post!

It was a hard choice. Some angles I like the Peugeot, while other angles I preferred the MG. I went with the MG, but I did go back and forth, looking at the pictures a bunch of times before deciding.

Don't let the jerks deter you from posting your fanfic.

I cannot see either of the vehicles as being KITT.
Interesting choices all the same.

Stargazer: No car suits Kitt better than his own '82 Trans Am. Just going [waaaaay] outside the box.

krfan1: A lot of people are preferring the MG. I'll give it a little longer before I write.

Thanks for the votes, guys!!!

I looked at both options and really couldn't decide. I think what would make KITT would be a 1998 -2002 WS6 Trans Am. Just upgraded a little bit, with all of the functions that it had before.

Just so you know...

I COMPLETELY AGREE.

A Trans Am is the only car that Kitt has come to know as home.

Problem is, it wouldn't be original.

People have upgraded the T-Am before, I just decided I'd go [way] outside the box here. Kitt was sophisticated, no? So wouldn't an aristocratic, classy exotic car please him just as well, if not more? I have confidence that he'll settle in.

And don't forget - if this can't be Kitt, it could be Karr.

By the way, my personal decision is the 907, for those of you who are curious.

KITT was, and let's face it, a little snobbish. Rich people [like to] drive expensive cars. Is a Mustang expensive? Nooo... Would anyone here like to see a Corvette ZR-1 or a Dodge Viper dissected and modified in every possible way? Nooo...that would ruin the heritage. These cars I'm offering are cars that are little-known and don't have a 'racing excellence for over 100 years' sticker on them. I figure they'd be the best to gut out and rebuild, excluding the body.

James Bond in a ZR-1, ah? What are you, sick?
