Surprising Face of Modern KITT Knight Rider Unveiled

Witness the unexpected transformation of Knight Rider’s iconic car. Explore how KITT’s new features stack up against the classic.


KITT its popularity, there was a lot of science fiction to be had, and producers took care to avoid repeating the same path. As a result, a lot of ideas were developed in the 1980s, one of which is particularly relevant in the age of artificial intelligence. We’re talking about the 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, the Knight Industries Two Thousand, or KITT, which was an artificial intelligence-powered, nearly indestructible high-tech vehicle, and the 1982 Knight Rider television series, which ran from 1982 to 1986 and starred David Hasselhoff as the show’s main character, Michael Knight.

Despite the fact that the latest installment of the series was released in 2008, the franchise has maintained a cult following due to its concept and subsequent sequels (which include made-for-TV movies, follow-up television shows, video games, and more). For example, the creative world of digital automobile content providers has also looked for a contemporary adaptation of Knight Rider. For example, virtual artist Oscar Vargas, known on social media as wb.artist20, is still dreaming up automotive things that are impossible to build in a garage, like a modern KITT for the Knight Rider series.


He’s had a passion for weird stuff for a while now, like a brand new, completely upgraded Dodge Viper supercar from the 1990s built to be used as a vehicle in the Viper series reboot, an additional action movie centered around cars that would see the Viper Defenders fighting crime and enforcing justice. Still, he’s also imagined things like authentic short-wheelbase Ford Bronco “roadsters”, a boat that passed as a Dodge Charger ute (coupe utility), or a Camaro that spawned a Corvette powered by a ZZ 632 crate engine!

He obviously has a quirky way of thinking, and an updated Knight Rider KITT fits that description perfectly. Thus, the 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, which features a strobing light effect on the front, a slammed widebody appearance, a menacing black color with matching aero wheels and a retro-futuristic design that is different from anything we’ve seen from Pontiac until its demise in 2010, appears to be the pixel master’s first creation. So, what are your thoughts?


To be honest, the top executives at General Motors probably would have never thought of a continuation series for the popular Knight Rider franchise and the KITT intelligent car if they were resurrecting Pontiac from the dead. But considering that GM has also decided to discontinue production of the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro in favor of focusing solely on the C8 Corvette and its Stingray, Z06, E-Ray, ZR1 and Zora variants, bringing back the Firebird Trans Am wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
