Knight Industries Three Thousand

Looks like yet another 80's classic is coming back. NBC will be airing a brand new Knight Rider made-for-TV movie in February 2008!

KITT will be upgraded from a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am to a 2008 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR and the acronym KITT will no longer stand for "Knight Industries Two Thousand" but instead "Knight Industries Three Thousand".

Popular Mechanics has a hilarious feature by feature comparison between them.

Unfortunately the article fails to mention the existence of the car "Knight 4000" which was featured in the little remembered Knight Rider 2000 made-for-TV movie in 1991. It was based on the Pontiac Banshee concept car and had impressive features such as a built in fax machine.
