I have one:K.I.D.O or Knight Industries Defence One.

Made in a Corvett(haven't decided on what year),the car will be black with a Pink scanner.

As the name suggest,she will be mainly for defending FLAG and will escort the semi accross a dangerous zone.

Her AI will be will be smart,but overly brave.And as like KITT,she can't harm any humans.

Its funny but customers who are chevy guys admitt that they love chevy, but the Mustang transends that. Watch for a Mustang come spring when the convertible and Rousch Mustangs are introduced for 2005.

Also go to http://www.patleck.com/quebecrpm/ford/mustang2005.htm

drop through the pictures, there is 2 black 2005 mustangs, one is a street version(pretty plain), but the other has that Knight Rider look to it.
Just remove the mustang sticker at the bottom of driver door and put a red scanner in the center of the grill.

let me know what you think, CJ



I've done it. I've taken the "Knight Rider" version of the '05 Mustang, altered it a little bit and then added it to this poster (note, I added the lense flare just for the poster. I created a normal scanner look for the normal picture of the Mustang, which does not include the flare): http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/code_brea ... pg&.src=ph


Also had to come up with a story and cast information for it, so that I knew what kind of look I was going for the poster. Here it is:

Story info:
Director: Ridley Scott ("Alien", "Blade Runner", "Hannibal", "Black Hawk Down", "Gladiator"... Need I say more?)

Cast:
David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight (obviously, so no need to list stuff he's been in)

Chris Evans as Ethan Knight (Evans last film was "Cellular" and he also was in "Not Another Teen Movie" and "The Perfect Score")

Sandrine Holt as Sarah Darwin (Holt was in "Resident Evil Apocolypse", "Starship Troopers 2" and was also in the short lived TV series, "John Woo's Once A Thief")

William Daniels as the voice of KITT (I know. No need to list films.)

Jason Statham as Parson Lockheart (Statham has appeared in both "The Transporter" and "Cellular", amongst other films)

Maria Bello as Helen Wilkons (Bello has appeared in "Payback" and lately in "Assault on Precinct 13")

Ice Cube as Marco Snipes (Ice Cube, not to be confused with Ice-T, has been in "Three Kings", "Boyz in the Hood" and his latest work is "Are We There Yet?")

Premise: Ethan Knight has just finished community college, with not much plans for the future. Being the son of Michael Knight does have its drawbacks, particularly when Michael is now in charge of Knight Industries and F.L.A.G. Michael is looking for a driver for KITT, still in his old Trans-Am body with some minor upgrades, and hopes to get Ethan behind the wheel. Ethan doesn't like even going to the Knight Industries labs, except for when Sarah Darwin, the late Bonnie Barstow's daughter, whom he actually has a crush on. But fate, like it met Michael Long, is about to meet Ethan.

Three ex-marines break into Knight Industries' storage unit, stealing a variety of plans and formulas for some of KI's previous projects. Though Michael begins to go after them, both he and KITT get their butts kicked, leaving Michael paralyzed from the waist down, and KITT's body destroyed beyond repair. Ethan, first having to hate Knight Industries, joins up in a time of need, Sarah managing to recover KITT's CPU. With only a short timeframe, Sarah and Ethan work on Ethan's 2005 Mustang and install KITT's CPU and all of his equipment into it, so that Ethan can begin his hunt for the criminals in order to save Knight Industries and get one back for his father.

Nice job CB2001, I like what you did and I agree, KNIGHT RIDER LEGACY is a great name for the next series or movie.

The Mustang in your poster looks awsome, I knew it would look great as the next KITT(KNIGHT INDUSTRIES TEN THOUSAND).

I also think your story for your version of LEGACY is cool too.

Thanks Knightphoenix. I actually got "Legacy" from the ever popular "Knight Rider" book we all know and love (I STILL have plans on getting a copy of it).

I actually would prefer that it still be KITT (the Two Thousand), because a KR movie without him would seem weird. I mean, why else would KR2000 have KITT in a new body?

I have thought about a variety of varitions for the story, including that one that actually has Michael getting kidnapped and killed, leaving Ethan to choose to walk away or to step up (like how Michael did in the KR2000 when Devon was died). However, I may save that and use it for another poster image (so that I have a story idea for another poster like how I hadn one for for this one).

I understand what your saying about KITT.
I may be wrong, but KITT did tell Michael that he was voice of the KNIGHT INDUSTRIES TWO THOUSAND, KITT for short. WILTON and DEVON did refer the car to MIchael as the KNIGHT 2000 didnt they.

THen the new car will be new just like the KNIGHT 4000 was a new car, with KITT's cpu installed in it.

IN my version of the new series, KITT is installed in the new KNIGHT INDUSTRIES 10000, when the 4000 is destroyed.

KITT has to be in any new car they end up with.

Am I making any sense?
I think I'm going to watch the pilot episode again, just to see if I'm right.

Well, I tend to think that the body is referred to "Knight 2000". I mean, if you recall, KITT's exact description from the pilot episode was "I am the voice of Knight Industries Two Thousand Micro Processor". That means that the hardware (namely the body and computer installed) made of the "Knight 2000" body (in "Knight Sting", the Linx shell that was installed for the mission wasn't even REALLY his, but he, and quoting him, said "I must have begun thinking of it as a part of me". When KITT was in the Chevy, he said, "I am KITT, originally 2000 series circuitry". That meants that "Knight 2000" had to be refering to the body and equipment. When KITT was installed into the 4000 series, he was still 2000 circuitry installed into 4000 series body. That, of course, is just my opinion and interpretation of the data. I could be wrong, of course.

I have made several KR vehicles for unfinished/unwritten fan fictions.

1) The Knight Automations Model One. (K.A.M.O.) - This vehicle pre-dates KITT and was direct competition to KARR's creation. KARR showed more progress as Wilton's life span grew short and the secret desert lab was shut down overnight. In fact, the KAM project was not one, but a fleet of super cars for each of Wilton's children to carry on his dream with. (Which helps indicate why KARR was coming along at a quicker pace.) The lab was simply abandoned on short notice and Wilton never left word afterwards to gather the components.

One night, long after Michael and KITT had begun operations, a freak lightning storm kick started an emergency generator, activating a sequence of events that brought an untested K.A.M.O. to life. (I'd have to re-read my own story to find out what car model KAMO was based on. Not a Trans-Am.) The Foundation only learned of this event when a safety in the lab's systems interfered with the heart of their modern day systems.

K.A.M.O. was never fully equipped. He basically had a super strong shell, a fully functioning A.I. system and a top secret device that could alter the force of gravity for both offensive and defensive uses. KITT outmatched KAMO in many ways. For example, KITT's MBS was by far superior to the watered down, experimental version that KAMO possessed. KITT could multitask KAMO's CPU into dust. KITT had dozens upon dozens of options to work with. KAMO had little more then speech and autopilot to work with.

On a side note: At a later date, KAMO's core personality would be integrated with the Knight Reformulation One, as seen in Team Knight Rider.

2) The Knight Industries Three Thousand. (K.I.T.T.) - This vehicle would quite literally be the brain child of the Knight Industries Two Thousand. It utilizes a whole new, liquified technology that wraps around a hardened frame. The circuitry can modify itself with mere programmed instructions, as it is based upon a hybrid gel/silicone material that is years ahead of anything even the Foudation's cutting edge tech department had come up with. The greater portion of the body was based on an altered version of this gel that resembled more of a metallic sub-structure then a liquid that flowed between the seams with a never drying version of the MBS formula. This substance had an incredible strength to it that rivaled that of the Two Thousand's on certain levels. There was a balance of stamina, though. The Two Thousand's solid fused shell gave it more endurance to impact. Whereas, the Three Thousand's flowing nature gave it both a recovering (or healing) ability and the capacity to thicken the density to a point of impact. (In other words, it could stay in a fight, given enough time to recover from previous hits and granted the impact force wasn't massive in both strength and size.) The Three Thousand's lesser portion of body was more like a chopped down version of the Two Thousand in it's convertible mode. Basically, a floor board frame that gave the engine, seats, dash, doors and some other basics the hard, connecting frame to stay connected to. While it was 'old formula' MBS treated, it served more of an internal skeleton necessity then a defensive measurement, as the liquid shell was constantly in use around the whole vehicle to both protect and serve as the body in whole. When this shell needed to be altered in form, the car would literally form a CADD-like cage in mid-air, giving the liquid shell a path to travel along and seal up between. Giving the Three Thousand a very unique capacity to will itself into any shape (given a few restrictions like the amount of liquid shell on-board there was to work with, physics, shape of the hard frame to work around and such) that it so desired. Such a substance allowed the Three Thousand to operate in almost any environment. Land was no problem with a liquid shell for tires. Wing growth and alterations to the drive shaft (like an imitation jet blade and air flow chambers) gave the Three Thousand a tolerable flight capacity. Similar alterations meant lake/sea skimming was possible. Air pocket creation and total shell containment added a submersive capacity.

The operating system that the Three Thousand ran off of was totally created by the Two Thousand and operated in such a complicated, unique way that no Foundation staff member was ever successful in decompiling, translating or understanding. Add to the fact that the personality was almost an opposite to the Two Thousand and seemed unstable so much of the time, the opinion amidst FLAG was almost unanimous that the Three Thousand would turn on it's Human Pilot and/or anyone else, given enough time. Their fears would never be determined, as the Three Thousand's greatest asset would also turn out to be it's fatal flaw, when an explosive force would exceed it's ability to repel, causing the instant death of it's Pilot (RC III) and the total disruption of it's processing ability beyond the point of rebuild, resulting in something that looked like a burned out car frame, sitting in a large puddle of goo.

A large portion of how the Three Thousand's technology could exist was never discovered by FLAG. They were able to understand the basics of the frame arcing and liquid frame substance, which was integrated into the motorcycle team of Plato and KAT (I may be forgetting my TKR names...) from TKR.

The reasons behind why the Two Thousand series never revealed how the Three Thousand was made remained for the most part...a mystery. The Two Thousand found itself in a restrictive condition when it 'gave birth' to the Three Thousand. In a sense, it had become suicidal shortly after breaking a governing law in order to obey a governing law. (AKA: It killed a Human to save it's Pilot.) In order to recover the Two Thousand, drastic measures had to be taken to erase the condition. Unfortunately, along with the damage went the necessary equations that led to the Three Thousand's technical advancements. Or, so the Two Thousand would leave the techs of FLAG to believe. Regardless of conditions, the Two Thousand series was never able (or willing) to reproduce the technology.

3) K.I.M.M.Y - Little is actually known about KIMMY. The vehicle was designed to be a third field agent team, (First agent team consisting of the Knight Industries Two Thousand, Michael Knight, Devon Miles and Bonnie Barstow. The second team consisting of the Knight Industries Three Thousand, Reginald Corneilas, the Third and April Curtis.) whose Pilot was a female police officer that Michael Knight personally brought into and trained for Foundation field work. K.I.M.M.Y. was a next generation K-line series built by Foundation techs and only saw one field mission before being terminated. The mission consisted of recovering a classified military aircraft dubbed Kittyhawk. The hybrid hover jet outmatched K.I.M.M.Y. and her inexperienced Pilot with a pincer missile attack that flipped the vehicle upon it's roof, exposing the undercarriage. Where the aircraft proceeded to bombard the Foundation vehicle with high yield explosives until it submitted to the battle damage and exploded into a rubble, killing both Pilot and A.I. in seconds. Michael Knight and the Knight Industries Two Thousand arrived on the scene eighteen minutes later to report the incident.

Also worth noting is that this case led to the retirement of Michael Knight several months later.

More about KIDO

After KARR Crashed into the semi,FLAG decided that the semi needs to be more secure.So after a few years FLAG came up with the Knight Industries Defence One,or KIDO

The new Vehicular Operative has many of the same equipment as KITT,But SPM (as she tends to be of a lead foot).instead she has an escot mode where she escots the semi or the limo.Like her brother KITT,she can't harm any humans.

She will be made to be look like a 87 Corvette with a pink scanner.Her voice modulator will also be pink.As to where the color choice came from,no one can say.

She can be a bit of a smarty pants and over baring some times.This tends to cause sibling rival with KITT.(even though he doesn't show it)
