    How about Pursuit Mode and the later version... Super Pursuit Mode (where KITT transforms into something "different").

    Hmmm.... it'll be interesting how they'll make Knight Rider appeal to more than just the kids of the 80s. Hehehe! Having a car with AI in the '80s was high tech, but 20+ years since then? Hmmmm...

    Title: NBC's Son of Knight Rider
    Author: Josh Grossberg
    Date & Time: November 3, 2007, 4:41 AM
    Source: Yahoo! TV

    It looks like KITT has himself a new partner.

    NBC has tapped soap star Justin Bruening to front a new Knight Rider TV movie that could serve as a pilot to a revived series based on the '80s action-adventure about a crimefighter and his talking Trans Am.

    Per the Hollywood Reporter, the 28-year-old actor will play the son of Michael Knight, the original series' hero played by David Hasselhoff

    The 1982-86 Knight Rider chronicled how an undercover cop named Michael Long was gunned down on the job and then given a new face and new identity by a secret, extra-governmental Foundation for Law and Government . Rechristened Michael Knight, after the dying billionaire behind FLAG, he is dispatched to fight baddies with his chatty sports car, KITT.

    The souped-up, artificially intelligent Knight Industries Two Thousand features an arsenal that would make James Bond jealous: fire- and bulletproof frame, turbo engine with super-pursuit mode, spiked tires, radar and, presumably, a killer hi-fi.

    This time out, the younger Knight's ride will feature even more aftermarket mods, perhaps even morphing into a Transformers-like bot. The make and model of the new vehicle hasn't been announced, though; NBC is seeking an auto maker to partner with for the retooled KITT.

    Like Hasselhoff, who starred in The Young and the Restless before hitting it big in Knight Rider, NBC found its newest action hero in daytime TV. A model turned actor from Nebraska, Bruening spent four seasons on All My Children and had a brief run on One Life to Live; he has also guest-starred on Cold Case and Hope & Faith.

    And, perhaps not so coincidentally, Bruening will be getting his first crack at a prime-time vehicle at the same age as Hasselhoff when the original Knight Rider launched.

    The TV movie is being produced by Bourne Identity director Doug Liman. Liman may also direct the pilot if he can fit it into his schedule. NBC is shooting the telepic as a so-called backdoor pilot, meaning if the ratings are solid, it could become a series.

    This isn't the first attempt to reboot the Knight Rider franchise.

    Hasselhoff reprised his role for the 1991 TV movie Knight Rider 2000, but didn't return for two other follow-ups, 1994's Knight Rider 2010 and 1997's Team Knight Rider. His later attempts to rev up a Knight Rider movie wound up stalling in development.

    NBC has not signaled whether the Hoff will make a cameo in the new TV movie. He is still in the Peacock stable, hosting America's Got Talent. He's also prepping Tales from the Hoff, a Ryan Seacrest-produced scripted series for E! that will follow his fictionalized escapades la Curb Your Enthusiasm

    I dunno... Barricade from Transformers looks more macho with having too much unneeded "intakes" and "wings".
