Well he did say...
“if they still feel that they need the manual version I hope to hear their feedback and voices after this”.

How do we contact this man? Lol Did that petition ever go anywhere? Let's get some votes on that sucker and ship it to him.

This manual conversation will only end if Toyota will bring in a manual version of the Supra.

Yeah that was brilliant, especially regarding tuning and power.

I wonder if they moved the Z4 engine rearward as well?
I believe so, yes. I remember there being some contention from the BMW side because they felt it would delay the project, so this must have been early during the platform development phase.

Wait..52mm?!!! and didnt he say they did so 1 year before launch (around 12:05).

This might've been the reason why the supra was delayed after the Z4 perhaps?

Damn, interesting video but they should have done the translation beforehand. Subtitles would have been so much easier.

With all the orders booked for the new Supra all around the world, it seems to me there is a strong signal that has been sent to Toyota about the future of different variants and a manual which will eventually see the light.

But reading these comments on MKIV forum shows how die hard fans think and can't see further than their nose.

Now there is a strong business case for more interesting things to follow.
