NBC unveils 2008 successor to Knight Rider's KITT

Recommend article:Burbank (CA) - NBC Universal this morning introduced to the press the new KITT, the Knight Industries Three Thousand. It's a Mustang-based successor to the previous KITT, Knight Industries Two Thousand. This Shelby GT500KR will take its turbo boost center stage in 2008. And, just like its illustrious '80s predecessor, it talks.



Knight Rider, the TV series that shoved David Hasselhoff and a talking Pontiac Trans Am into our collective consciousness, is coming back in the form of an updated two-hour TV movie early next year. The new movie stars Justin Bruening as "Mike Tracer" a 23-year-old Iraq war veteran who, as it happens, is also the son of Michael Knight, the character played by Hasselhoff in the original series.

Comedian Will Arnett will replace William Daniels as the voice of the new KITT. He played George "Gob" Bluth II on Arrested Development, though he probably most well known as Stranz Van Waldenberg from the comedy Blades of Glory.

The new KITT operates in several different drive modes like the original. When in "Attack" mode, this new one gains armor, scoops, and even manages to change its wheel color. Some key aspects of KITT remain familiar, however, even with the new Shelby Mustang design. It will remain in black, for example. And what KITT would be complete without the sweeping red light array up front? The new KITT has a revamped one as well. Woooosh.

Should have done a prototype/concept car, or at least something streamlined like the Tesla Roadster or something - not a damn Mustang that looks like a cardboard box with a faggy wing. Plus cant every car on the street beat a mustang? Probably even the Mini.

Might have to change my handle after this crap :(

Hollywood has pretty much butchered most of my childhood in the last year, and in the next 2-3 it will have completely destroyed it.

Yep! They really messed it up indeed with the tang. :evil:

They should have picked the Chevy Volt instead! :P

Even the Volt's front grille could have that read cyclops moving light beam too.

This would even be a great marketing tool for GM for a performance hybrid vehicle too!

was watching the Grinch on cartoon network with the kids last night and they announced in one of the commercials that they are redoing (yet again) the TF cartoon. This time it will be in the style of cartoon like the Teen Titans...

found a site with the preview on it, love the new theme music :evil:

So they all turn from huge honkin machines into skinny bitches that listen to moronic remakes of their title song - I hope this fails REAL fast!

Why do companies have to ruin everything - they are not making products for a new generation, they are REmaking products and trying to put a newer spin on them - its sad.
