it's only my opinion but...
as stated before everything about the movie takes place in another timeline where Kirk can drive a car, a motorbike etc. So, if they were ever to make another episode titled "A PIECE OF THE ACTION" in that timeline then Kirk will be able to drive that car and give Spock the ride of his life!
TREK IS TREK. WHATEVER THE TIMELINE!
The next TV Series should be called STARFLEET!
