Car looks nice, but not for Knight Rider, if that makes sense.

Val Kilmer as Kitt? Could be cool.

Is Hasselhoff in it or just producing?

The new guy (Michael Knight's son?) looks painfully uncool in a 'let's make him hip and cool for the kids' way.

All in all - could be ok.

It was OK. The story was decent and the Hoff cameo was cool, but I thought the car was just too "magical" rather than chock full of cool gizmos like the original.

Some people are in a helicopter and scoping for us? No problem, we'll just magically change into another kind of Mustang. Need to get to Las Vegas pronto? No problem, we'll just shoot across the country at 200mph because the cops certainly won't care. Trouble inside the casino? No problem, we'll just hack into the closed-circuit security cameras and unlock a door that can only be opened by a security card. Worried about a collision? Don't fret, because even a large SUV traveling at highway speed couldn't put a dent in this car, much less move it at the point of impact.

The whole idea of KITT being a mustang turned me off from even giving this a chance,damn why a friggin mustang!

I kind of liked it. KITT reminded me of transformers a bit. Oh, and I hoped the music would have been a bit more like the original (I was also disappointed about the music of the new BSG).

But I was expecting this car:

Better than a mustang.

As much as I liked the original Trans Am, I couldn't help but wonder why they couldn't have made a new type of car instead relying on some clunky old Pontiac.

I don't know. I had seen a few pics of this one so I assumed it was the one for the series. I didn't know there will be a movie also. I wonder why they would make different cars for the series and the movie?

The picture of the koenigsegg is the same one as in the poster. Look at the spokes on the tires and the reflection on the windshield. Photoshop trickery, me thinks!

Oh... so I've been looking at a fake poster? Bastards!

That Koenigsegg is pretty cool btw.

Something reminiscent of the old KITT would have been nice, but product placement rules supreme. The fact that the show is pretty much an extended Ford commercial is why Val Kilmer replaced Will Arnett.

Speaking of which, can anyone really see Kilmer voicing KITT if this goes to series?

I don't see him doing it long term, though I like him as an actor.

The show for me was good, not great. Way too many problems later on. As usual, people being executed in motel parking lots, villains running around with machine guns, cars locked in death races on the road and nary a cop or another person in site. Plus the usual non-descript Euro-bad guy, along with his non-descript Asian henchman, along with the totally non-stereotypical computer hacker with the horn-rimmed glasses. Please oh please.

On the bright side I loved the car, the story was obviously well thought out (the implementation sucked), the main actors didn't repulse me too much. I'll give it a shot if it goes to series.

There's going to be a movie?

Hmm, I have hardly heard anything about this. I have not seen it or any trailers or commercial for it. The only things I new about it were things people had told me verbally. I had heard KITT was a Mustang now, and that he would be voiced by Arnett. I hadn't heard he would be voiced by Kilmer, that is kind of weird. I thought Arnett would have made a cool KITT, too bad they changed him. At first I didn't think much of KITT being Mustang, but now that I have seen that picture of it, uh... not sure what to think. Just doesn't look right.

Now that KITT is portrayed by a different type of car, I have been thinking of how they might change around other cool vehicles of the past to lame modern day counter parts. I'm thinking a PT Cruser to be Dr. Brown's new time traveling car of choice in an as of yet unplanned Back to the Future remake.

If you had told me some years ago that KITT would one day in a future Knight Rider remake be a Mustang voiced by Val Kilmer, I would probably have said the exact same thing.

What's next? A new Charger for the General Lee? Or a new VW Beetle for Herbie? Never gonna happen, my friend.

I hate what they've done with the music. They should have just done something completely fresh.

I didn't mnd it overall but it's not interesting enough to suck me in every week.

THIS should be the new K.I.T.T. But instead we have a Mustang commercial.

Hmm. Seems nifty enough, a little googling reveals it to be pretty light and more than adequate in the power department, but I can't help thinking it looks like a 1975 Corvette with a dash of F-117, Batmobile, and Ferrari Enzo sprinkled in.
