They had it right the first time with the one from the pilot! You guys have to admit in a comparison the first attack mode was far better than this monstrosity we got. It might just ruin the whole show for me because it will make me sick every time it appears! I really enjoyed the pilot & was very excited about the series but now im just disappointed & whoever decided to green light that junked up attack mode version should be fired!

Legal departments aren't immune to stupidity as they've shown many times over the years. The transformation looks a lot like it did in the TF movie from what I can remember. Though yeah, it's not a concept exclusive to Transformers but I'm sure there's going to be a lot of "Transformers rip off" comments. Not to be expected since Silvermen's wanting to bring back KR had to do with that movie.

Off to the airport!

I thought 'Oh God, that better just be a temporary vehicle for that one episode!,' however the more that I look at this new car and the more footage that I see trickling out from NBCU of the new series and the new car in action, the more I think 'You know, this just may work and it might not be so bad after all.'
What is bothering me the most about all of this (and the one thing I find incredibly ironic) is that when the vast majority of us saw the Attack KITT in the pilot movie, there was a collective cry of bloody murder and thus began the countless threads that basically boiled down to 'I hate the new Attack KITT' and 'Anything would be better than that thing!' posts. Now that we have a newly unveiled Attack KITT, those same people still are not happy even though (I think) this new Attack KITT looks hugely improved over the previous version and even resembles the SPM mode in several not-so-subtle ways.
Before we go shooting down GST and the new crew for giving what some of us perceive as a "dreadful" Attack KITT, let's all remember that we asked for them to redesign this thing. Had it not been for all of the fans out there who clamored for a redesign, the unveiling today very well wouldn't have happened. For that matter, most of the changes being made so that the series will (hopefully) prove successful and give us all a new, modern era of Knight Rider that will draw in new fans as well as please the old ones wouldn't be coming about either and this new series would likely bite the dust after a few episodes had David Andron and Steve Shill stayed in the primary seats as writer and director/producer.
This new series is being made with, what seems to be, very close attention to what the fans and critics are asking to see changed from the pilot movie. They can't go changing everything so we need to understand that compromises have to be made on both sides but let's all give this series the chance it deserves before we go on a crusade to villify the new showrunners for not living up to the immense and widely differing standards that some of us have. Let's face it, I think some of us here wouldn't be content with any decision that is made regarding this new series unless they were the ones calling the shots. I, for one, am excited and eager to see what this new series holds and I am willing to have an open mind all the way and to reserve judgement until the show is well under way.

Thompson admitted that he went online to the forums, the press to learn what they liked and didn't like or what they missed. "Turbo Boost was the big one, you should know, and I think you do." But they argue that everyone has a vision of what Knight Rider was to them, and also take into consideration that they want to get the new fans involved as well, and it's very difficult, and they will try to get it right. We just need to give them the time they deserve.
i can definitely understand where you're coming from. as a superman fan, i know this all too well. some fans just are never happy with anything, and we all have our own interpretation of what "should" be done with a particular franchise.
