** Or they're LeaningOnTheFourthWall, since ''viewers'' won't ever know.

** What makes even less sense is why didn't they remove KARR's CPU and replace it with KITTs? Why was there a need to build a second car?

* One thing that doesn't make sense when you consider the various episodes where KITT's Molecular Bonded Shell and the secrecy of the formula is an important plot point: how was KITT rebuilt and restored so quickly after being trashed by Goliath? Not to mention the handful of other times KITT got trashed. It doesn't seem likely the Foundation just has barrels of the MBS compound lying around in case KITT needs a retouch, and yet the MBS can't be recreated without two of the three people who know the formula. Setting aside that KITT wasn't at 100% for his rematch against Goliath, they had to have rebonded the more damaged parts of his shell, but...''how?''

*** Err...no. KITT was being constructed ''long'' before Michael Long was shot in the face and rescued by the Foundation. It was actually ''sheer coincidence'' that KITT just happened to have a similar body to Long's Pontiac.

** If you watched the first episode you'll remember that Michael's car was originally a normal Pontiac with a normal steering wheel, normal interior and no special functions before he was hired by F.L.A.G. and turned into K.I.T.T., probably they decided that it was perfect for modifying and turning into such futuristic machine rather than buying or building a new one.

** It's also a blatant disregard of IAmNotShazam, seeing how the phrase KnightRider isn't even supposed to be used in-show, and refers to the driver, not the car.

* In the 2008 pilot movie, Dr. Graiman sends the car out for Michael Traceur, while he makes his escape through the woods and his body double suffers a fatal heart attack in front of the hired killers. Personally, my plan "A" would have been to get into car and drive away from the place. If the bad guys want to shoot the car, it's bulletproof. If they want to try a car chase, I have the advantage. And if I decided I needed Michael Traceur, I'd show up at his place in the car, in person, to explain the situation to him instead of a talking car.

** Maybe they meant they'd never know what he's looked like before the ''plate'', as his drivers' license would presumably show his features after that was implanted.
