In the end when Starsky is given the new Torino, the two men giving it to him are the actors (Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul) who played Starsky and Hutch in the original 1970s TV series. See more...

Continuity: Starsky and Hutch are both called in to the boss' office after robbing a bookie and destroying a Cadillac's roof. When Hutch walks into the office, the top drawer on the right side on the boss is closed. But when the shot changes to the boss when he starts talking to Hutch, the drawer is open.
Continuity: In the scene towards the beginning of the movie where Starsky is jogging along the beach, he is very obviously covered in sweat and his sweatshirt has huge sweat rings around his arms and neck. He falls in the sand after checking out the girls, but when he gets up there is no sand sticking to his sweaty face or clothing.
Other: After taking a knife to the leg, Starsky hops off in obvious pain, not able to put weight on the hurt leg. When he is putting his "bad cop" routine on for the Korean man, he walks perfectly fine, but then when he walks from the door to the table (after Hutch and the man have their meal and conversation), he walks with a very pronounced limp.
Continuity: The opening shot of the movie shows the 'Bay City' police department front entrance, and there is a 2-door silver Torino parked up front. If you look closely, you will see that it is actually Starsky's red and white Torino, but the film has been modified to 'hide' the car from being obvious. Even though the car was shown speeding around in the opening 'credits', it had not made its 'debut' at this point in the movie, so the producers were probably saving its 'first' appearance for the spectacular first stunt scene. The opening shot of the front of the police station shows up later in the movie, yet this time the red and white Torino is 'magically' in place of the silver one. It is obviously the same piece of film, due to the same cars driving by and the same people populating the scene.
Continuity: The mirrors on the Torinos make it obvious that there was in reality more than one Torino used for filming. Several close-ups show the Torino equipped with the stock Ford sport mirrors. The glass in this style of mirror is adjusted, but the body of the mirror is rigidly attached to the mount and does not move with adjustments to the mirror itself. In the later scenes during the chase to the docks, Starsky is seen to hit the mirror on his door with his hand as he is rushing to get inside and close the door. When he hits the mirror, the entire 'head' of the mirror moves on a swivel, showing to be an aftermarket, generic 'sport' mirror. The producers tried to hide this by painting both the stock mirrors as well as the aftermarket mirrors to match, but the differences are obvious from one scene to the next.
