Talking Points: New KITT v. Old KITT – You Decide!

Our friends over at ComingSoon.net reported yesterday that Arrested Development and SNL star Will Arnett will be taking on the voice behind the new KITT Ford Mustang in the upcoming NBC made-for-television Knight Rider sequel. The movie event, which will air on February 17 at 9 p.m. ET, will be a follow up to the iconic 1980s television show that starred David Hasselhoff and a Pontiac Trans-Am named KITT. The car was originally voiced by Boy Meets World‘s William Daniels.

Of course, this news combined with the revealing of the fact that the updated KITT will be a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500KR got me thinking a little bit — we know that Will Arnett may not live up to the legacy of Mr. Feeny as the voice of KITT, but will the Mustang be as cool as the Trans-Am was back in the 80s. Ultimately it is up to you to decide which is better, but first let’s see the evidence.
