I quite like the sounds of this.
Guess we'll wait and see what happens here
What's the difference between a right hand drive and a left hand drive manual transmission? They just need a mirrored interior and a revised bell housing for the fork. Literally everything else could remain the same except for a few bolts and brackets
probably the clutch position
To me, that doesn't say it will only be rhd... They asked about rhd since they are Australian, but it doesn't seem to be rhd only by the phrasing
sounds like Toyota is playing chess
Meh.. no one cares about the RHD market.. booooo
My take on reading that is, manual has been made, for the LHD, but he was saying its important to make the RHD manual as well, since it needs to be sold in Japan as well. It would be ignorant to offer on RHD in manual, when a majority of their market is LHD. That's my take on it.
I wanna say "Haaaaaaaaa!!!", but then I wonder if all RHD markets will get a hi-po version....
The transmission, bellhousing, etc. are almost always unaffected by driver position. The differences will be the pedals, master cylinder, lines to the transmission, and the interior panels. Sometimes the shifter is different as well (angle).
But none of that actually matters, the decision will come down to what they want to sell in each country, it's not an engineering or design concern.
I believe the mention of the RHD market is more implying its availability on the 4-cyl model, as the 4cyl is yet to be confirmed for North America (aka the big LHD market). That's just a guess though.
Pretty much everyone here wants a manual
Not according to Toyota, they met with Supra owners and apparently they only cared about a turbo inline 6 and nothing else lol.
Everyone of those owners wanted a manual transmission with their inline 6 turbo engine, they just didn't think they had to spell it out to Toyota.
It feels like one of those bad genie jokes where someone wishes for something like being the richest person alive and then his wish gets granted because everyone else is dead now and he's technically the richest person alive...
