New Knight Rider Teaser

NBC during Sunday Night Football tonight, aired a 15 second preview for the new Knight Rider TV movie. It featured a sneak peak at the new KITT, which we had shown here before. More excitingly it also was the first time we heard the voice of KITT, as done by Will Arnett.

  • Ford had released the 1965 Mustang for sale in April 1964, but August was the traditional start of a model year. Ford had some minor revisions and tweaks in place for this "new" model that Ford rolled out in August just in time for the Goldfinger promos. Therefore, for the 1965 Mustang for sale there were actually two series. Enthusiasts often refer to the early series as the 1964 ½, and the 1965 as the start of the range known as the "late 65s".

  • The Mustang gets
    energy from a wide range of engines. Engines were 2.8-liter general valve,
    3.3-liter a general valve, a 4.3-liter V8 OHV, a 4.7-liter V8 and four cylinder
    engines and 289 in the last four 289 barrel. All engines except the last, was
    fitted with 3 mechanical gearboxes, and the latter was equipped with four manual transmission.
    In 1965, the Ford Mustang GT version is the line up next year, Ford has
    some more color choices. The second-generation Mustang made
    its debut in 1967. The new Mustang was
    more than 2 inches larger then its predecessor, the mask opening the car was a
    little, it would be better taillights and the rear window was plastic. The new Mustang was
    powered by a 200 cubic inch six-cylinder, where a selection of over 200, 225
    and K 271horsepower-code 289 V8 engines have more power.

    they never gave the car away either, probably kept it for one of their spoiled brat kids

  • archley

    Since I am a fan I will watch the movie online lol no way!! Kitt cant be mustang! (messed up).

    If they would have used the new Dodge challenger.I will go to the movie and buy the dvd.

    Ford mustang Lmao!!!!!!!!!Why everything has to be so commercialized now a day? I wonder how much ford paid for that indirect advertisement.Mustang is the most unreliable sport car out there with a few fans.

    Who really wants to sit down watching a crappy ford mustang for over 2 hours.

    I think the studio desrespect us as Knight rider's fan.

    Even thou the charger is a bit bigger I would vote for the charger over the crappy ford mustang.but the right car for this movie is the DODGE CHALLENGER. or corvette,caddy xlr anything but mustang.I am pissed!!!!!!!!!!!

  • IhateJerr

    Hey Jerry

    they actually had a brain and didn't make it one of those disgusting Pontitrash GTO's. GM didn't have a V-8 Muscle car on the market so they lost out. Plain & Simple. Thank God for that too because GM/GMC Suck a big one just like you.

  • Backo

    Well picking a car must have been a big problem because it must be American and American cars are all crap (as cars not looks). They didn't really pick Ford actually only Ford picked them.

    I've seen the first episode and yep the show does suck.

  • 14U2NV

    You all lost the entire point of this show.

    Like most have said this is somewhat of a sequel and the mustang is a great way of saying muscle and speed. The color transformation shows futuristic as well. Can we not support a show we all used to love no matter the kind of car?? Cmon people support the new and improved Kitt, my 2 young sons even got into it and didn't move the whole time knowing it was a new version of something we enjoyed when we were younger!

  • FirebirdGirl

    What a great way to bring back the Trans Am.

    But no, an overated Mustang.... The least they could have done was use a Saleen.

    Firebirds rule!

  • DJ

    I would first like to start out by saying that a am very happy to see night rider comming back. But for evey one out there who belives that kitt should be a diffrent car, then ou have got to know that the producers really didnt have many choices for an american 2 door sports car. Pontiac no longer makes the fire bird and its sister car the camareo dosent come out till 09 which would have cost way to much to prduce with. The corvette zr1 would have been a good choice but one again there is a money issue. also other opions inclded a 08 challenger wich is a very nice car but that car is also just barley being relseased and would have cost more money, the charger but it is a four door car and kitt would have looked like a racing grocery getter, and finnaly the dode viper would have been an great car except for the fact that it would be too expesive. In addition the Ford mustang is a good fit because it is an american sports car, and it is fairly cheap so all in all with all the options they had i belive they made an ok choice not the best choice but an ok choice.

  • richard

    they should of have made kitt following their original idea make him out of a every day driving car. like all of the other shows that have been successful.who cares what kind of car kitt is but can anyone afford it.it would have been cool if they made kitt a truck!any truck!

  • Korissa

    I thought the Movie was great!!!! I also think the Mustang was perfect for the role of K.I.T.T. There isn't anything wrong with FORD!! My hat is off to the minds behind all of it:) I was very impressed:)

  • Richard

    Im exited to hear Night Rider is coming back movie or other that was my favorite as a kid. I don't think the Hoff will be the Man running K.I.T.T so the when in the tv spot when K.I.T.T he meant the new guy. The car looks great new car for a new time why should it look like the old one. Can't wait to see it.

  • Derwynn

    this show was by far my favorite show of the 80's, and I'm a huge T/A and camaro fan, but I think their best choice should of been to appeal to the continuity of the 80's series. This is where the first tv movie and TKR went wrong. The old show was heavy on the relationship between micheal and kitt, and how they played off each other's skills. Thanks to Fords major investment, the new trailer only makes a point of showcasing the car, and very little of anything else. The choice of car was important as well, though i'm disappointed that they didn't have a GM pony car, the mustang still fits quite well. It should be noted that the original series was not actually sponsored by GM though they did supply them with xtra "black t-tops"(they only referred to it as a T/A in early episodes). I think they should have brought back at least some of the original cast to tie-in the old and new, as well I agree that Hasselhoff should of taken up Devon's role. They should also have an appearance from the original Kitt (Wiliam Daniels) as a different car, in the same way Karr and Kitt were different, explaining the new Kitt as an upgrade. As goofy as the original series became, it was the best formula for this kind of show. This show's only real chance at a series is appealing to original fans and keeping true to the original plot line...ps.it's gotta have turbo boost.

  • Klappstuhl

    How come the new Car is a crappy looking Ford? Seriously, KITT has always been a look at the future!

    Personally, I would love to see KITT in a Lamborghini Reventon. That. would. ROCK!

  • Kitsune_Baka

    I'm sorry, but NBC's new incarnation of KR is going to be worse than TKR and KR2K combined. What were NBC thinking? KITT is an '82 Pontiac Trans Am like the General Lee is a '69 Dodge Charger. What would the Dukes movie have been like if they'd just slapped orange paint and a rebel flag on some newer car?

    Also, no Turbo Boost? Half the fun of the show was watching KITT jump through the side of a semi trailer or a wall. New KITT probably couldn't even make it through a wall, it doesn't even have the MBS, just some lame "self healing" capability. So is it just gunna sit in a corner and rebuild itself like Christine?

    And for the record, THIS woulda

    made a much better KITT. =P

    I think that everyone that is an chevy fan is an Idiot!!! Fords roll & chevys lose. The shelby GT500KR is alsome.Obviously all you chevy fans are running scared. There's an new king of the road in town. And so you should! So sit back and put your head between your legs and kiss your Ass GoodBye!!! As far as the new Knigth-Rider series go. I think the mustang will do as good if not better then the Trans-Am.Carol Shebly rolls!! All of you chevy fans are just jealous. Because he been kicking your ASSES for years.

  • Dave Spirito

    Lets not forget that the Mustang of today has a following much like the firebirds from 20 years ago. I think the show will do pretty well. And, having Mustang fanatic cousins with a couple supercharged mustangs each, and having ridden in them, I like Mustangs alot. They are fast cars!

  • Larry

    The TA sucked on the street. At least when you see the new Mustang you know its better built and a better performer. GMs suck!

  • Anthony Padmanathan

    hey all well im from the UK and i sooooo carn't wait for this Iam counting down the days.

    no one can replace old KITT looking back at it the car the moves was great back then and still is, but times have moved on KITT needs an upgrade how ever not sure about the voice will it grow on me who knows cos i not seen it yet. What made Knight Rider well i think it was the whole team from devon bonney RC michael etc... so the new team have got there work cut out. I would have liked to see Daivd Hasslof take the roll as Devon i think that would have worked

    what i want to know is the will they bring back the mobile truck if they do you know your watching Knight Rider

    If this is a success then make the weekends worth watching i carn't take any more of x-factor!!!

  • TRANSDRIVE

    It's so true. CHEVROLET fans do tend to beat up on FORD fans just because they think they have the right of way. FORD has taken alot of heat from critics in the past and when challenged to meet the heet, FORD'S legacy speaks for its self. CHEVROLET was made to suffer the Mustang BOSSES and SHELBY'S in the 60's & 70's. Before that, FORD'S A/C COBRA was the feared Corvette killer--became legend. In fact. when Ferrari stated FORD could not even begin to compete with Ferrari's legacy they were then punished by FORD'S GT40 over and over. Yes, FORD knows how to win races. Is it not true the Mustang has by far out sold any CHEVROLET? HUUMMM!!!

  • Martinez

    Well i think that nbc or the person who came up with the idea to come back out with knight rider could've improved on the car. Im not trying to say that the Ford Mustang Shelby isn't a bad car but i don't think it would have fit into a Knight Rider personality. But on the other hand why not come out with a the bad boy Knight Rider Shelby. They could've used a 99 trans am firebird or something brand new like a Saleen S7. The Mustang doesn't fit Knight Rider personality. So what the heck y not give the show a watch.

  • Michael Knight

    Actually the studio approached all of the big three to see if they were interested in supporting the show. All submitted conceptual designs. Gm submitted the new Camaro, and the hideous GTO. But would not agree to use the Camaro until fall of 09. Dodge was not interested while Ford submitted both Ford GT and the Shelby 500KR. The Ford GT turned the most heads of the producers, but in the end the car was far too expensive to use. As for their choice, I think they made the best choice possible! The aggressive , stealth-like styling of the 500KR is perfect for KITT. You redneck GM guys always make me laugh! You hate Ford so bad that even though Ford has virtually the only real muscle car out there (Before you say anything, Corvette is sports car, and Camaro is 2 years away) youre already totally against this show. Not to mention that the 500KR mustang out performs virtually every car under 50k out there! And lets not forget the original 85 Trans Am was a terd! I should know I owned one for 2 long and painful years...It was the most under powered car I've ever owned...when I could keep it out of the shop that is. Oh and can't forget the lovely hubcaps! I think what would really make you guys happy is if it was a Chevy Monte Carlo with Dale Jr. as Michael Knight.

  • Ford Girl

    Hey everyone dissing the Mustang. What the hell do any of you know. The new kitt is just as good as the old one. So anyone who says that the new kitt is awful does not know what the hell they are talking about and try to learn to like a real car not crap. Obviously none of you know what you are talking about.......................

    At least a Camaro...Corvette...or even Pontiac Firebird



    Come on.

  • DENNIS

    thank you for using a good ford car not crapy gm cars

  • Adman

    It Won't Be the Same As The Pontiac, And They Could Have Done Better With The Car

    Very Disappointed

  • Ben

    Hey.. i got to say iv been thinking alot about the new car, and i think it will work really well. But even if the car doesn't work theres so much more to it. one of the things i think that made the old series so great were K.I.T.T and michaels team work, they just both worked together prefectly, the old Trans Am again worked prefect with michaels image if u get me. And i think the new car and character look like there going to work well too, i know the new car looks boxy as some have said but if you watch i am legend it really shows what it looks like on film.. and i dont know about other people but i think it looks great! ofcourse all this is without seeing the actual movie, i could be wrong and it could turn and really bad. i say "dont think its goin to be bad by i 15sec clip" wait for aleast a trailer!

    I know im going to watch it, come on guys it cant be that bad, im sure you lot have watched KR 2000 so you can atleast give it a chance as you did that.

    Ben

  • Vista Lord

    Finally they got it right. That car will rock!!!. However it will end up on Sci-fi within a year or 2. At least it is not a Trans-Am!!!

  • Katman Du

    Can't believe a masterpiece like the Cobra would ever be associated with such a cheesy tv show like Knight Rider. Carroll Shelby must be raking in the dough for NBC to be able to use the KR500!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • CobraKing88

    Knight Rider was so corny back in the 80's. What a joke! However with the introduction of the Shelby Cobra as Kitt, they have a brand new fan! ME!

  • LeChakra

    Why oh why are you trying to wreck an old (amazing) series!!! is it because they do not have the initiative to create new programmes!! And if you're going to have to do it, drop the act that Americans can make cars that go around corners and choose a Ferrari F50 or even the Enzo. Or at least a concept car of one of the top end car manufacturers (and this does not include the idiotic choice of cars in the Knight 2000)

    I have one word for the producers and directors - think harder!!!!!

  • alex

    ok guys ya'll are really starting to annoy me with it's not a trans am it;s gonna suck or it should have been this it should have been that oh and the ever famous he said mike not michael jesus guys pay attention ok

    when he says hello mike he is talking to mike tracer the new knight rider not michael knight michael knight (david hasselhof) does appear in the show but as a guest star also

    it's not a remake it's a sequel it picks up years later it's not the same story and this is not the same kitt(knight industries two thousand) this is the KITT (knight Industries Three Thousand)

    it's a new and improved version of kitt thier not trying to make you think it's the same computer it's a whole new super computer it's not the originall kitt and they are not trying to pass it off as the original and for those of you who are saying they won't watch because of the car?

    well i personally drive a mustang and i have owned a trans am in the past and even a coupel of chevy's but to say i am not gonna watch it because i don't like the car is stupid...

    watch it and if you dont like the storyline or the acting or the actors cool then you got a valid reason but to not even watch just because you don't like the car is dumb..

    ok now that i have vented i feel better

    happy new year everyone!!!!

  • Once again. The 2009/2010 Chevrolet Camaro is and will be KING! Crush crush crush!!! I will be the 1st person in Australia to buy one! CRUSHH! And maybe for a shit stir, I'll customise the bonet and put a red light.. or I'll just stick to a transformers hologram sticker. Any suggestions? ;)

  • YourKiddingRight?

    Wow.

    Hate the show cuz it has a car you don't like? Are you 12?



    I think they should have gone with a real sports car, you know something from Europe?

    And who said the Charger?!?? come on...I know your Dad has one and "Blows the doors off of minivans in it" so its cool. But really at least the mustang has some class to it.

    I really didn't like the original show. There is a reason it is treated as a joke. But if people want to watch it that's great. there are 249 other channels I can watch.

    Not even sure what led me to this discussion....

    Geez, I need to get more of a life!

  • jt$$$

    Look at what happened before transformers came out...nothing but people knocking it...then it comes out and is one of the biggest ones in global sales..perios..what about VOLTRON?? this will be out in 2010 or so...they are already bashing it and no one has even seen anything on it yet...I think that the mustang has always looked tough...but with the respect to the series I agree that a vette might have been a better choice...also your not gonna see an import like an acura hop on stage in movies like this....just my opinion...thanks

  • www.chevrolet.com/performance - This is THE king of style and power and should have been KITT. However, having been used in transformers and other media stunts, its easy to see why the Knightrider production krew had to choose the mustang which is 2nd best. A reminder to all that the actual 2009 production camaro will indeed look 99.9% like its concept causin. And being engineered here in Melbourne Australia, I have had the priveledge of seeing the production fleet at street level. Fukn awesome!

  • Seansy

    People who are knocking this before it's even been tried... I think if they re did it with a black trans am it would be a joke. may as well get ben stiller in as michael knight and some dumb model as bonnie and make it an 80's throwback comedy, with the voice of some fairy like ponce as a car. great.

    stop living in the past. the original series was good for it's time, now watching it it's flawed. it looks second rate, and the acting is cheesy as hell! but that's it, it's throw away tv! i will still watch it today to kill time and have a giggle at how bad it looks!

    So many people knocked Michael Bay for 'ruining' Transformers by making Bumblebee a camaro and giving Optimus flames. Do you want a yellow herbie? bollocks you do. His reimaging gave TF a new lease of life and what a great film! overall it was recieved well enough to do well at the box office!

    The script writers were from the OC for the new KR right? so it shouldn't be too corny?

    And I bet Mike Tracer has no idea that Michael Knight is his father. What was that knight rider episode where michael meets an ex who he was with when he was michael long? could be a love child? would make a lot of sense.

    And the idea of the car being a 'Stang is growing on me! it looks bloody mean, back in the 80's everything was becoming streamlined and angular, it was what they thought the future would be like. why are manufacturers making they're cars look muscular and menacing and not angular and streamlined? it's keeping with the times. The pontiac trans am was never a super car, nor is the shelby, but it's a lot more potent out the box than the trans am ever was.

    I am looking forward to seeing this when it comes to the UK!

  • Jared

    Can someone please tell me why William Daniels is not involved? And if KITT 1 and KITT 2 are not the same, then are we going to find out what happened to KITT 1?

    Plus, why isn't Gary Larson involved? He is the creator of the show!

    I am a big fan and William Daniels made KITT the character we all love. I truly cannot stand Will Arnett and I feel this KR is not going to live up to the original.

  • ken

    thats is the best looking K.I.T.T. car i have seen hope to see more of it

  • Blackstar

    I love this design. It's perfect for our tougher world. The Trans Am was never my favorite, and the Knight 2000 looked too sissy to me. It didn't look like it could stand up well in a fight. The only part I liked about the old car was the tough looking scanner bar. Oddly, that's the one thing I don't like about this one.

  • Cube

    And About not seeing it in action before I hate.

    I have seen it in action I watched it drive around and now I have seen it's red scanner light.

    it's still ugly, I only have to give it a chance for 5 minutes to decide that.

  • Cube

    I still hate the car, I hope it gets totaled in the show after season one and they rebuild it into somthing that looks good.

    Come to think of it I do not think I have seen anybody anywhere who likes this car.

    Then change to at least something that is worthy and don't look like a cheep car mod by someguy who tried to turn his beat up mustang car into KItt.

    It can even be something that don't look like an old beat up army tank car from the ford line I don't care just dump the thing.

    They are showing the old car are they not then what is the problem with using it again?



    Come to think of it I do not think I have seen anybody anywhere who likes this car and wants it dead.

    The voice is alright I guess, but I still want the old kitt voice.

    And since everything has changed I don't think that is the same kitt or Kitt cpu, new driver new car.

  • Tommy Kyle

    Cameros and TA firebirds same body from the 80s and 90s....doesnt matter what people say they should well they should of went to orginal...its like this kids watch it the new one oh look mommy daddys car outside in the garage. it can talk. well if they had the F body TA its outerspace to them. like it was when i was little growing up, i grow up thinking wow that car doesnt exist until maybe late 90s i first let go of KR. lol and saw a TransAm my first time i paid attention to the streets

  • Tommy Kyle

    Yeah they got the MK back just for one episode they will prolly kill him off like they did devon in knight 2000 movie with poison or after he resigns.

    please not the knight 2000 music that will make people depressed cry and maybe running to the bathroom to throwup. There saying cameros they should well the idiots dont know today in this day in age is that GMC is pontiac and chevy (what is left of them) iam sorry but NBC should of did more homework then gather the new generation directors and writers some from the stupid knight2000 movie they should of never did. the story was off.

    Buy some replicas from people off this site and put the Orignal theme song on that made people russ to turn it on. I hope that NBC writers too go back on strike....if know one watches it then it should be cancelled by june hopefully.....

    The Movies starsky and hutch The dukes to name some were the regular cars. you couldnt put the dukes back on air and give them a dodge viper could you no that doesnt make sense now. same as KR. well there movie soon this fall should be the orignal car too if not its not fair..compaired to what i said....there all wanna bes on NBC tiring to build a good resume to kiss someones azzes one day. iam just watching the first one with David in it after that i dont care if KITT turns to human iam not going to watch it. True Grits are the ones who says it suppose to be the regular Formula

    It just Touched my heart when i was small and now to this day my first and only car i have is an 84 annivsary trans am..

    iam the only one that thinks all this.

    well thanks for your time

    P.s they are calling him Mike wtf ?

    whatever happened to michael or knight

    new gen people errr

  • broke-like-a-joke

    The next thing you know know they'll be doing a remake of the Bionic Woman.....{Ô¿Ó}

  • K1NG

    I absolutely LOVE it when people judge things before they see them in action (The new Bond was bashed, the new Joker was bashed and so on)

    Give the darn thing a chance and we'll see after it aired in Feb what its like.

    Personally I like the new car. Look at what kind of cars drive around on American streets today, mostly SUVs. A sleek sportscar looks stupid next to them. It's a tougher world and you need a tougher car.

    Anyway, Hemingway, any of you guys see the interiorn design... I really dig that!

    AND they got the original Michael Knight back... that's cool.

  • WS6

    Knight Rider without a Trans AM is like Star Wars without Jedi Knights.

    There are plently of 4-Gen TA's out there and they would make a far better K.I.T.T than anything else.

    The producers have failed before its even released, more interested in making a fast buck than keeping with the original concept. (Or all driving around in free Mustang's)

    Next we will all see a new Dukes of Hazzard series, Mustang with a General Lee paint job - LOL

  • Stinch

    I like the idea of a car that you can buy and that is what i liked about the TA you can buy one for yourself and kitt it up!!!

    The GT500KR is in production and not some concept car that will never see the light of day!!

    I hope the show goes down well cos i would love a new series!!

    Remember "one man can make a difference!"

  • Cyfer1

    As a fan of Knight Rider im a lil disapointed that they didnt choose a car that was very reminiscent of the original K.I.T.T......but it isn't the original K.I.T.T. its a new version so im holding out hope that they make it worthwhile to watch.it looks as if there will be a new generation of Knight Rider for me to get into (even though the "Michael's son" story sounds kinda uh..lame, and why is it "Tracer instead of "Knight" if he's supposed to be Michaels son?and the double spoilers on the new K.I.T.T. suck) im a big enough fan to at least watch this and hope its good enough to produce an new series.

    What's next? Are they going to remake the movie Vanishing Point and have the guy drive a Focus?

    I'll withhold judgement until I see it, but...

    I agree with wolfbait74, the CAMARO probably would've made a better choice. True, its not out yet, but its only ~1 year away (remember, that car models are actually out ~6 mo. before model date) and what better way to promote it (in addition to Transformers). Also, (from what I've seen) the new KITT looks almost exactly a Cobra, whereas the original KITT had the body of the TA, but there were distinguishing differences from the production models. I haven't noticed any such characteristics on the new KITT yet.

    In addition, I think that without another real muscle car on the market, the Mustang has been a bit over exposed lately.

    The Ford Shelby totally ruins the aspects of KITT. He is supposed to be sleek and smooth, not fat and boxy. And whats with Mike...Good try guys but the show won't fly unless you lose the Ford. My recommendation since the early 90's is if there was to be a new series that the Acura NSX would be a perfect fit.

    Anyway, won't watch because of the terrible vehicle choice.

  • D'Hag

    Of course the new KITT isn't a Firebird. The morons at Pontiac have dropped the 'Bird permanently, never to return. And Chevy almost made the same mistake with the Camaro.

    KITT would look good as a Camaro, but it's nearly two years away from being reality.

    Whether NBC is in bed with Ford or not, at least the Shelby is a real production car. What else were they gonna choose, a Charger? Like that's a real sports car!

  • It sounds very good regarding the Knight Rider coming back to the scene. I'm a big fan of the old series and I used to look at it in my s.c younger days. But still, the old series holds good quality when one is going to judge the content.

    Nice speech b.t.w.

  • I love the guy who's doing the voice (Gob from Arrested Development) The reason he calls him Mike is it's not Michael who's driving this one, but his son.

    Also, The Mustang is sexy as hell. I miss the old TA too, but this is a new version and it's a new Kitt. So bring on the Shelby.

    I saw the trayler on Youtube it is piss poor I have left mesages with both nbc and the dude that put the vid on the tube to tell then what I think I will give it a chance but I'll no hold my breth and I too think a GT 40 would have been mutch better after all it very easy to make dummy shells for stunt cars.

  • wolfbait74

    Well I was thinking the new Camero would of been a nice choice. But I"m sure money had a lot to do with it. Just think if they make it a series every season you could come out with a New Kitt mustang. What better advertisment could you ask for!

  • The Keith

    The new KITT is a Mustang because Ford has a contract with NBC, so pretyt much every show that will have cars in them will use a large quality of Fords.

    With that said, I'd like to have seen KITT as a Ford GT, but some how I don't think they'd fit the bill to total up a few $100k car for a TV show. While a 6cyl mustang can be used on the stunts that destroy the cars.

    I'm just gonna reserve my vote for feb 17th. it may impress me more then expected.

  • Steveon

    The Mustang thing is kinda crazy... they should have used a more inconspicuous vehicle.

    I'm looking forward to it.

  • JP

    I thiught i saw a cobra on the back (on other pictures also on the side), so i guess it's a Shelby (a redesigned Ford Mustang by Shelby)

  • Teaser trailer + KITT pics picked up in the news!!! See here:

    @Kevin - this isn't a series yet. NBC has only approved this TV movie. The thought is if this does well that they will make it into a series.

  • Stinch has a good point, this is a sequel, not a remake. I still feel that a Mustang GT would have been better than a Shelby Mustang, less boxy. But I saw the Shelby Mustang in I Am Legend and it didn't look that bad. I'll give this show a chance.

    Also, note that Glen Larson, the producer of the 80s show, is NOT involved in this new one. He is doing a MOVIE THEATER movie to come out in 2010, and they have NOT chosen the car for that yet. Glen Larson promises his car will look a lot more like what fans of the 80s show would expect.

  • Stinch

    When kitt says Mike he's talking to Mike Tracer not Michael Knight!!

    Remember guys this isn't a remake of a classic its a sequel to a classic!!

    It's picking up the story 20 odd years later!!

    I think the car looks great and im glad they haven't tried to make it look like the original car cos that would just be crap!!!

    Im can't wait!!!

  • Kevin

    TV Movie? You mean full blown series. And I'm guessing that the Mike, instead of Michael, is meaningful (having already read quite a bit on the storyline of the new series).

    Personally, the Firebird is way better. I hate Mustangs. But, I'll give it a shot since I'm a big fan. Can't NOT watch it just because I hate the car itself. Maybe the show will give me a possible liking to the Mustang.

    Ok, maybe not. But still.

  • bobby

    hahaha, chargers suck. what are you talking about? impala's are beating out chargers in the real world.

    KITT says "hello mike" ??

    I'm used to him always calling Michael, Michael.

    I can already tell that this is going to be lame.

    Why can't people get things right? We really have to cannabalize decent series for an extra buck? This whole TV movie has "cheap" written all across it.

  • Phil

    Am I the only person who think the Mustang isn't a bad idea? Don't get me wrong, I loved the Firebird, but it's a rougher tougher world and needs a KITT with a bit less style and a bit more muscle and there's no muscle car out there with more than the Mustang. Except maybe the Charger ;-)

    As for not watching just because it's a Ford... that's fine, I guess you're entitled to an opinion. Think I'll wait and see before making the judgement.

  • Jerry

    A crappy Ford?

    What the hell are you thinking? OH wait, You're not!!!!!! Won't watch!

  • anonymous

    Ok, the car looks good but it should of atleast similar look like the front of the old Kitt. Meaning that the head lights would be hidden and no grill. The producers should of atleast taken the corvette. Anyhow, the trans am still looks way better than this mustang.
