KnightRider is back, AND HE'S A MUSTANG!

http://jalopnik.com/cars/knight-ride...0kr-327687.php

Awwwww DAMNIT to HELL! They HAD to use a Mustang didn't they!!!

I just hope the show is cool... cause the ride sucks (as much as a 550hp Shelby GT500KR can suck).

Well, I can't really say this isn't expected. Think about it, now everyones crazy over the Camaro, thanks to Transformers, so ford's gonna try an up it by putting a stang on a national tv show. But personally, I still think Kitt should still be if not a trans am, but maybe another GM product.

I don't even care that it's a mustang, they just picked terrible placement for the roving LED

ugh...This is the type of thing that get's me wishing the Camaro had come out already.
Aw well, the Mustang should perform (acting) just fine. I just wish our car could've eclipsed the Mustang again on the Big Screen...

Why did they plug the scoops? I thought they were functional, maybe they aren't. Oh well, I was never really a fan of the show anyways

Oh no....don't use the stang. If you are going to remake the show, there are so many other cars you could use. Don't like the idea of it for KITT. I like the stang itself, but not for KITT.

I, too, was a huge fan when I was younger. Hope it can somewhat live up to the original.

Yeah the Mustang as KITT is seriously ghey...

But the better and more important question is....how are they going to find someone cooler than David Hasselhoff to play Michael

Hmm, seems a bit fishy to me. They say it's confirmed and we have photos, but they said the light was photoshopped. I saw no other markings or badging with KITT or Knight Enterprise (or whatever it was called).

I also find it hard to believe they would have a stable of those cars to thrash for a weekly TV series.

I'm sure they can mass-produce body kits if they wanted. And so long as they don't try and jump the car much it should be fine. Remember, it only has to look like a Mustang GT500 KR -KITT Edition. They could use a V6 stang from a couple years ago with body kits most of the time

You're right of course, still doesn't seem legit to me. This wouldn't be the first (or last) time I'd be wrong about something.

Here you go, giving Ford the idea for another "edition" of the 'Stang. This year the Bullit, maybe a Boss Edition, next year the KITT Edition. I'm sure it will be another badges and bodykit special with a V-6 and crappy exhaust. Maybe the center stack will have all the cheesy looking buttons on it too.

No, no, here's how their editions'll go: You have your Pre-KITT edition, KITT Edition, Post-KITT edition, and the Special Edition Edition. . . . Hey, do I get royalties if they take any of these suggestions??

oh no the show won't be the show without "the black trans am" this is sick, ' the black mustang' oooh there aren't 10 million of THOSE on the road.

one big reason i won't own a stang... it's just another mustang!

i was a big fan of the show. but there is no way it can be good like before, like them trying to make the bandit into a series using a dodge stealth. .. yeah. it'll suck go down the tubes quick.

Kitt has been a mustang before.. and from the looks of what ive read, Hasselhoff is to play himself in the new series

the light was photoshopped, but they've been planning on using a mustang for a while now, since GM still hasnt released the camaro (or any possibility of a trans-am)

they will prolly use a bunch of v-6s with body kits. someone asked me on another forum why they wouldnt use the SuperSnake. I told them its cus the show wont make it with KITT as a mustang so there's no use spending the money on a SuperSnake. really there's no use using a mustang anyway, but oh, well. if the movie/series makes it till the camaro comes out, id love to see the Hoff upgrade to the new Camaro. it already has the slit for the KITT lights.

btw, me and a friend are working on making his 86 LS1 powered Camaro into a "KITT" of sorts. pics to come soon.
