KR and Miami Vice?

Decided to rewatch the first episode of Miami Vice today and I noticed when Leon or whatever is on trial is leaving the courthouse, he gets into a stock Trans Am that looks just like the one in Knight of the Phoenix. Any relation or just coincidence?

Don Johnson was considered for Michael Knight, there was some episode involving a trans am in the desert, i think it was in some season finale, in fact, two trans ams iirc

Oh wow, never knew they considered Don for the MK role. How do you think KR would've faired out had Don been Michael? To be honest, i kinda want to see what he would have been like piloting the world's greatest talking car lol.

Both shows were produced by Universal, hence this similarity.

I can only see him as Crockett hah, that wouldn't work with the Knight Rider setting. But then, it's like thinking of David as Indiana Jones, even though i don't remember having a confirmation on that
