  • KITT is... a Mustang?

    When I read this, I pretty much told myself there's no way I was going to watch it:

    I hate Ford. Passionately. And the mustang is literally overkill. There are so many versions of it coming out, and so many used in films that I never want to see one again. Here are some pics for you Ford fans



    They should have used the freaking Koenigsegg!

    Boo!!!!

    Then it's not Kitt. Period.

    Why does EVERYTHING have to be so commercialized now? All GM products in Transformers, etc.

    Yes, I know the answer is $$.

      What were they supposed to use, a Solstice? The Firebird doesn't exist anymore and nothing in Pontiac's stable has the recognition let alone muscle car history to put into the spot. That and KITT should be an American car, not an import.

        My first thought on seeing the above photo, was that the Mustang doesn't seem sleek (for lack of a better word) enough to portray KITT. Looks a bit bulky, especially with the running board. However I will reserve further personal judgement until after I've seen a trailer with the car in action.

          Don't care what the car looks like. I won't be watching it.
          As soon as I heard KITT would morph like a transformer, I voted against it.

            Prime time for them to build another Firebird IMO.

            I don't care about them updating the car ... but at least make it a smooth, sleek car.

            Sure Kitt was a Firebird, but IMO the Firebird wasn't a "Muscle-Car" it was a sports car.

            As for current cars they could have used over the Mustang ... not sure.

            But if they were going to use a Muscle-Car, I'd have wanted the new Challenger personally.

            Tell me that wouldn't have been sweet. Sure it's a muscle car, but it's got the sleek-ness too.

                  THIS ISN'T KITT.

                  ITS CHIKKEN.




                  It needs to be smoooooth, not boxy.

                    Why not pull out the Corvette? I know it's not a Firebird, but at least it's a GM vehicle and it has a sleeker look. Or, if I were planning to make this film, I would have contacted GM and told them that it was in talks and what could they do to revive the Firebird? Maybe bring out a special one time edition, or create something new?

                    If GM was contacted, and they turned it down...meh! I just don't see the Mustang replacing KITT any time soon. Maybe the Mustang will be in the film, but it just won't replace KITT.

                          I've always been a Mustang fanatic, but I have to agree that this is a poor choice. I think a smart decision would have been for Pontiac to whip up a prototype Firebird and see if it generates enough interest to bring the car back to production. If it did, then wonderful. If not, then at least KITT wouldn't have become the latest in a string of so-reimagined-it's-soulless movie characters.

                          Blah.

                            VW wouldn't allow a Bug/Beetle to be used in Transformers... Which sucked! I heart Bugs.

                              I think that was a good choice. When I hear VW Beetle, I associate it with flowers, slow pace, and my little sister
