    We have been told that Toyota monitors the forum. So lets give them a little feedback. What is your ideal Supra?

    Our forums insider said the prototypes were also tested with both DCT and manual transmissions. So I think if the push back was great enough they might change their minds. Also if sales are really bad than maybe it would force them to offered more transmission choices.

    Maybe we'll get delayed again so they can test the manual again... :banghead:

    The initial launch could just be the auto, thats fine. But down the road it would be great if more choices were offered. :thumbsup:

    What he said was there were no benefit of the manual. AKA not faster, modern autos shift faster, surprise surprise.

    I hope they do offer more options at a later date. The problem with Toyota when it comes to sports/sporty products is that they fail to do proper updates. @Craigy sums it up pretty well in the "No plans for a new 86" thread.

    The point about wanting a manual is not that it's faster or better around the track or anything, it's just simply more fun with more levers to pull and keep your body active while driving. Autos always feel kind of sedating if you're not on a track.

    I'm getting more anxious about this every day - if I'd be in the US, I could just slap a manual gearbox to the engine and call it a day. I'm in Switzerland though, it'd cost about 10 times more than the gearbox itself in paperwork and testing to get it road legal.
