Actually in the scene in the old man'* garage when the new KITT first makes an appearance, you see a stripped TA and major chunks of original KITT equipment lying around. It'* fairly obvious that the original KITT was broken down. It'* also obvious by watching the show that the new KITT isn't the same entity as the original.
I'm upset because THEY KILLED KITT.
BTW, fanboyism might come into it if the show itself didn't stink on ice. Seriously, the acting stunk, the directing stunk, the writing stunk, and the production value stunk...
KITT being a Mustang was the only thing about the show that I could actually forgive.
