Manual Supra and S58 GRMN Supra on the way

https://www.drive.com.au/news/toyota...b-4154605bf1dd

"At last, the Toyota GR Supra will gain the third pedal enthusiasts have been asking for – ahead of an M3-powered GRMN Supra halo due in 2023."

It's about damn time. Maybe the car will be used for more than drag racing now.

Yeah I have a feeling this was in response to the new Z coming with 3 pedals. Toyota doesn't want to lose sales. I for one never even considered the Supra simply because it isn't available with a manual gearbox.

Now this will be a tough choice between the Z and Supra.

seeing this, if true appears there is a mfg listening to their base of clients. The company not listening in is the actual mfg... does this piss off anyone else?

I read an interview with one of the Toyota executives about a year ago. He said the plan has always been to make a significant change or improvement to the Supra lineup each year it is in production.

Since the current Supra was introduced they have improved the suspension, added a 4 cylinder option, increased the horsepower..

I hope the manual is not limited to the high end M3 engine (if it actually happens) model.

Adding a 4 cyl version is not an “improvement”

Wow this could be the car if they’d also include a targa top. The visibility out of the car is atrocious, but having the ability to remove the roof would be huge.

Is the shifter also borrowed from BMW ? I hope they will tweak it for a more positive feel.

Better drive one first, most hate the fact you can't drive it with the windows down above 35 mph or the buffeting is crazy.

It takes a $5 deflector on the door mirror mount to fix the buffer issue. Not a deal breaker at all

Exactly. Our 135i was awful with this too. Hell, even my Z3MC was pretty bad at it.

Next year's major change will be this from the factory
