Knight Rider NBC Remake, spinoff or sequel? Remake-slash-sequel; the original Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) still exists in this world. Source material: NBC's 1982-86 series. What's new: KITT is now a Ford Mustang voiced by Val Kilmer, not a Pontiac Trans Am voiced by William Daniels, and his driver is Knight's son (Justin Bruening). The team supporting him has also grown. What's not: Crime will still be fought, turbos will still be boosted.
