Camaro is too mean looking. I like it, but...hm...I don't know.

Speaking of remakes...any news on the supposed KR 2017 reboot? Assuming it's canned now...:(

I was considering the new 2017 Camaro as a kitt body but in silver with an orange scanner. Just to change it up from the usual black and red combo we're used to.

Saw that one coming from a mile away...in the semi, Knight Racer. :P

Still looks more like a Batmobile or something rather than KITT to me.

We need a batmobile type KITT.

I wouldn't show the slightest bit of surprise if Wayne Enterprises would place his emblem upon a rebooted KITT. After all, some versions of the Batmobile have self driving abilities, a bullet proof shell is right up his alley and having an AI assistant...might seem too much like Iron Man, actually.

I kinda like those rims KR. Not too fond of the Wayne Enterprises logo on the hood though.

I kind of dig it, although I would stick with the original wheels and just change the outer rim to a stainless colour to simulate the style of the Trans Am wheels. :good:

I love it man, that's exactly where I'd start if I was working on a modern KITT using the Camaro. Hell, if I ever get my arse in gear and get back to that story of mine, I could definitely see myself writing KITT based upon that. :good:

How about sticking the scanner between the headlights and perhaps small centercaps on the wheels to make them a bit smoother / aerodynamic, mimicking KITT's original rims?

@Matthew, I believe you made a suggestion in the middle of the evening about tinted headlamps to match the look of the 80's kitt and changed your post. I made a mental note of that for this morning before you changed your post.

@Kittfan,

Do you have an example of what you mean for the hubcap design? I think I might go with my older idea of a tinted glass based outer hubcap being held by a stainless steel rim.

Here's quickly made pic of the centercap design I was thinking, maybe just more shiny than this render:

Talking about modern take on Knight Rider, how about this New Retro Wave synth music for today's "Soul Survivor" episode ;)

I did yeah, although I didn't mean to edit it out. I should probably make a mental note not to edit my posts first thing in the morning, especially when I haven't slept for over 24 hours. :lol:

On the headlights, those definitely work bud, especially from a production standpoint. The '08 series demonstrated that a vehicle sponsorship deal can be quite strict these days, since Ford didn't let the producers do a whole heck of a lot to the basic GT500KR.

Who needs sleep anyway?

Also, does anyone know where I can find the KR 08 scanner to fit onto the grill of one of my cars?

Apparently me. :lol:

By the way, after some digging around, I managed to find some higher resolution pics of this Camaro on camaronews.com.

Those wheels don't look like they belong on kitt at all. The turbofinned bowling ball hubcaps or the custom ones i designed seem to say roving computer.Those seem too rugged.
