K.I.T.T. was referred to as a "Black Trans Am" in early episodes of the first season, then later simply as a "Black T-Top" for the rest of the series' run. See more »
In "Knight of the Phoenix", a stunt driver wearing a hood is visible in KITT when the car inches for ward behind the guard as Michael is trying to escape Comtron.
In the episode "Big Iron", when Michael and KITT are about to be buried under tons of gravel, some shots show that the tractor tumbles a Pontiac Trans Am, rather than the concept car used in the series. See more »
I was 3 years old when Knight Rider was released in 1982, I remember vaguely seeing some of the episodes when they were new. I find it puzzling that people will "nit-pic" a TV show that lasted a decent 4 years on the air, yes maybe corny to todays standards, but the show was harmless entertainment. Unlike TV programming today, at least it had it's own originality. Kids could watch it without a lot of heavy violence or nudity, (which was like none in Knight Rider. to name only a few.) on the contrary, it was very much sci-fi, as well as drama, and action. Bottom line, it's a TV show, get real folks, does anyone have imagination anymore?
