The New KITT

Hi guys not sure if this has been discussed before but here goes. The new camaro is a great car and looked really good in transformers but what are peoples veiws about it being the new KITT.

Now im joined to knightrideronline so know that its not gonna happen due to the licensing to transfomers. but just for fun whats peoples views.

I personally think it would be much better than the mustang that was used even though i did end up really liking it as KITT

It'd be cool but I'd hope for a new Firebird or Trans Am based off the Camaro platform just to be original.

i know what you mean, KITT to me will always be a trans am but they are now looking for a new audience as well as us people that grew up with the original knight rider. i dont think the new series will be as good as the old one but im open minded to it. i did like the pilot though i admit

I hated the pilot. I thought maybe it was because I was three-sheets-to-the-wind, so I watched it again later, and didn't like it any more than the first time. In fact, I disliked it more because that was then four hours of my life I'd never get back.

COME ON; KITT AS A MUSTANG (Shelby or no?!) WTF. KITT should ONLY be a Trans Am - PERIOD.

Maybe they can have KITT crash and replace him to a Camaro?

I think it's a travesty the the new K.I.T.T. is a Mustang even in the KnightRider 2000 movie the new K.I.T.T. was a modified 2000 Firebird.

In KR 2000, its was a modified FWD Dodge Stealth with a custom body shell to look kinda like a Pontiac Banshee Concept.

At least its an American car.

Here's my rendering of a Camaro KITT:

Really? I swear it had the same nose as a F-bird. I could be mistaken though. Although I thought it was cool when they put his brain inside the '57 Chev

if this trans am had a lil pre-hood scoop (sorry i dunno what else to call the slit before the hood) like the camaro, i think it'd be a rather fitting firebird for a new KITT.

maybe try putting your spin on that (or some other firebird photoshop) for the knight rider, if you find the extra time jinx
the camaro one is kewl

KITT wasnt a camaro as universal already had the rights to use it as bumblebee in transformers and for the next two films.

hm, I musta stated that in an unclear fashion, I wasn't asking "why wasn't kitt a camaro", i was indirectly asking Blizzard, "why did kitt turn you on to a camaro?", when the camaro had nothing to do with kitt...
