I wish the dashboard for the new KITT looked more like this instead of the default Ford Mustang dashboard with analog gauges.

I am a huge fan of the Volt and it's technologal development, but that dashboard is too conservative to be in KITT.

Damn, these kind of cars made KI3T look so dated...

Erm.. I hope those LCDs have a long life span.. I feel sorry for some teen, 10-13 years down the road, driving his used, beatup Chevy Volt and the screen goes out!

There were some nice futuristic dashboards during a car show in Paris. Here's an article about it.
