Modern remakes don't really seem to care much about tradition when it comes to the classics they are ripping off. I'm kind of surprised the General Lee in the Johnny Knoxville remake of the Dukes of Hazzard hadn't been swapped out for a modern Dodge... or even a Honda Civic. After all, Bumblebee was named that because he was a yellow VW Bug- the name doesn't make much sense if he's a Camaro.
It'll all boil down to whatever company ponies up the most cash for the production company.
