KITT 2001 by oldblueford KITT 2001 by oldblueford
The original was just a picture of a black 2001 Pontiac Firebird, but I added the roving light bar, turning it into KITT.

It'd be nice to see a newer version of the car from Night Rider. Imagine having a car like that by your side.

Actually, they did do one like that... they made a tv movie back in 1991 called Knight Rider 2000 where they dismantled the original KITT and made the Knight Industries Four Thousand. Which was a red firebird like this. But Michael, outraged, finds some of the original KITT's old computers and installs them in his '57 Chevy.

I had the pleasure of owning one of these cars for a few years and did something similar as a side project during electronics class in college. I had two banks of LEDs (14 or 16 per bar, can't remember) mounted to the underside of the hood with the lights traveling in toward the center and back out again. The LED bars were wired the same with one turned upside down so it mirrored the other. We hid the control box inside the front bumper and wired it up to the running lights so it was on whenever the ignition was. I later had to put it on a switch after attracting unwanted attention, a slight oversight on my part. It wasn't very visible during the day unless you were down at ground level (the bars were mounted far back to try and keep them out of the weather) but you could see it at night fairly well. I miss that car, had alot of fun with it. This pic brought back some good memories.

Thanks I could provide a good flash back. I've always wanted a FireBird... would kinda like to see the same done with a Smokey and the Bandit FireBird.

The Camaros and Firebirds are, IMO some of the best bang for the buck sports cars out there, I owned a V6 Camaro before I upgraded to the WS6 Trans Am and both were great fair weather cars. I don't know if the KITT lights would work on an older Trans Am, the exposed headlights would take away some of the effect. The popup headlights give the later models kind of a "soulless machine" look when they are down, it's intimidating.

I suppose that's true. Now I'm not saying the Mustang's a great car, which it is, but I personally feel they should have at least kept KITT a General Motors car. My vote would be for the Corvette, at least.

Agreed, the Mustang is a decent enough car but they should have used a GM product in the new series. The Corvette would have fit in nicely.

Its cool. When I saw the first one, I remembered Mike Tracuer's mom asked Charles Graiman if its another Trans-Am(Firebird) like the last one. This might be what KITT would be if he's still a Trans-Am.

I know, too bad GM had to retire the Pontiac name, because the Camero is the Firebird's sister car, so they would have a new one today if they had kept it. Thanks for the nice comment

Yea its too bad. You know, imagine if Knight Industries got hold of the nanotech early, they could have just added to the old KITT and he could just morph into this Firebird. That way Charles didn't need to make the Three Thousand. Old KITT just need some big updates and voila! 21st-century KITT. But KITT as a Shelby Mustang is still cool though, its more aggressive unless GM makes another Firebird just as aggressive.

Ture, true, another wicked car, and your gonna think this is funny, a Porshe Carrera, would be great as a KITT type car, like not KITT, just the German counterpart. Like his alli or something.

To tell you the truth, now that you mention it, I can actually see a German KITT as a Porsche Carrera. It does make sense as most Porsche Carreras are built into police interceptors. I can also picture the German KITT when he's in Super Pursuit Mode with aerodynamic body and spoilers like the american one. That would be cool.

Speaking of which, What do you think the car for a Japanese KITT and an Italian KITT? I kinda picture the Japanese KITT as a Nissan GT-R since its very technological advanced car. For the Italian one, I kinda picture it as a Lambo Reventon. What do you think?

Oh definetly, those are awesome... OMG!!! New TV show idea, Knight Rider International! There are a set of Knight Industries agents from other countries, and each week it follows a different one, German, Japanese, Italian, and British. The British one would probably be a Rolls Royce Phantom.

Like to see that as a 3D model.

Hey, sorry it's taken so long, but I just remembered, if you want a 3D version of it, ask Dalmationer on ShareCg.com, he does all sorts of car models.

All right. I think it should be fun to have Krystal driving K.I.T.T.
